Journal FortKnox's Journal: Swordfight 13

Coming home from church today, out of the blue, my son says "Daddy, you and I are going to have a sword fight!" I simply replied, "OK. As soon as you get home, get out your sword."
The boy has a little plastic "Lord of the Rings" sword.
Little did he know, I have an authentic Scottish Claymore in the basement storage from when I was young and stupid with my money.

Suffice to say, he surrendered when seeing it ;)

  • ... now, did you show him your kilt?
  • is the exact reason that I bought my klingon batleth! :)
    • I steal sigs. Be careful, or I might steal yours.

      Say...did you steal that from someone?

    • Where'd you get it? I've been looking for one for AGES, but the ones I find are cheap, don't look authentic, or wouldn't hold an edge if you sharpened it every day.

        Mine came from amazon. You can get almost anything [amazon.com] at that site.

        I think mine is the same as this [amazon.com]. If they are the same, then the edges will need to be resharpened, because mine look like it was done by a cheap grinder. It should be strong enough for most purposes, should the romulans attack. :)
        • Damn it I was hoping you wouldn't remember! Now I'm going to buy it, even thought I have no use for it. :-)
  • We used to have lightsaber fights. The funny thing is when he made his mother play lightsaber fight.
  • To comment on the Freudian perspective...

    I bought my claymore for home defense! It lies within easy reach in my bedroom closet.


    Actually I always wanted one ever since I played too much Abermud. I always went and snagged the claymore before just about anything else.
