Now follows the conclusion, that whosoever shall think or find himself in his fight too weak for the agent's, or patient agent, and therefore, or by reason of his drunkenness, or unreasonable desperateness shall press within the half sword, or desperately run in of purpose to give hurt, or at least for taking of one hurt, to give another, shall most assuredly be in great danger of death or wounds, and the other shall still be safe and go free. - PARADOXES OF DEFENCE, George Silver, 1599
Good stuff, what sources does your school use for sabre?
My club doesn't at the moment (only longsword, but plans to move into broadsword/rapier as well within the next few months) but I practice American military sabre crossed with Hutton. My friend practices late renaissance sabre.
christain: Just tried a sample of my boss's home brew beer....FABULOUS. Looks like chocolate milk, but tastes like Heaven. A very dark beer that I think would almost be better served at room-temperature in a horn.

Brother Nathaniel: It doesn't have to be that one of course, but any similar design would work.

snowbite: I never would have thought of the Christmas tree stand. 85 bucks though?

snowbite: that would only make it 10.5 inches wide at the base. Not very stable. And heavy to boot?

sacredcompass: I recently got 12 feet of 4X4 pressure treated lumber for a DIY tameshigiri stand, was wondering if I could get away with just joining the wood together in a clustered/pillar formation where they're all standing upright with the taller 4x4 in the middle

Brother Nathaniel: I have wrapped them in tatami and then soaked for 24 hours and then the very center of the dowel is still a bit dry. I believe soaking them before helps a bit to soak them through properly for a more proper "live bone" analog.

Brother Nathaniel: Oh these dowels work great as tatami cores! It even makes the rolling of the tatami easier as you are wrapping it around it. But I would say to soak it at least half a day before you use wrap it in the tatami( and then soak again) to make sure it's not dry

lioconvoy: Thanks! I was looking for something that would act as the "core" of my tatami rolls! That will work perfectly!
