here is weaponry that does not require gunpowder
#11
Having good steel is going to be important in the long run
yes, eventually people WILL run out of gunpowder

you need to have good weapons

pole arms were made/created for the untrained

yes...a good pole arm can kill a master swordsman

just don't be stupid

I have an Estwing 28 ounce framing hammer

it is..essentially...a war hammer

I would not want someone swing this thing at me

the claws are almost parallel to the head so they can dig in....aka....war hammer spike

the head is serrated and can punch through head gear

it is a war hammer that you can use to build a house

Most people don't realize they have a arsenal at their disposal with just a few modifications

most all old world weapons were....tools of the peasants that were slightly modified

axes are axes...you don't need to change a thing...they are quite deadly as they are

war hammers become pole arms and 'lucern hammers/bec de corbin" with a longer handle attached to a simple hammer...ot hard...a moron can do this

scythes, sickles.....even a garden hoe can be a ugly weapon if the shaft is straightened out and the whole head sharpened...it becomes a spear/axe/cleaver

Bardiche is just a big axe sort of pole arm thing....a big ass blade attached to a 4 to 5 foot long handle


look at history

most of the most devastating weapons were weapons made from the tools of the field....what people had


this is not controversial at all or questionable historically

the exception

swords

swords are very specific in duty....they are made to kill people and that is it

swords were the arena of the wealthy

you had to have some money to have a sword

Why would someone spend $250-$400+ for a blade?  Half of my guns and ammo where bought for less than that!!

good question

I have a fillet knife that cost me about 30 bucks...it was an ok blade..it got the job done....I had to sharpen it often when filleting a limit of fish

Then I bought a fillet knife that cost a hundred bucks

I can do a whole limit without having to sharpen it. It is still razor sharp after a mess of fish....that is win territory

It is the best blade I have ever owned...it does what i need it to do + a lot more...and I don't have to sharpen it constantly

I don't mind sharpening stuff because I am good at it.....you can shave with just about any blade I own...why?...because I can and it's not hard

I bought some knives from Ukraine a couple years ago to carve spoons with.....best metal ever....they hold an edge extremely well

we have a society of idiots trying to shame smart people into being idiots


this is not going to work very well

smart is the way to go

fuck the morons


you will eventually run out of gunpowder oh clever one

better have a good blade to back it up

if you have never held or used a fine blade...then you don't know the answer to that question

if you have

the answer is in your hand
I have a chisel that cost me a hundred bucks....it is a british made Chisel...Henry Taylor tools....fine British steel....it is so fine....

I have some German blades....Two Cherries....some of the most wonderful blades you have ever used...easy too sharpen and long lasting edges

I am a wood carver and so tool steel quality is important to me

If you are a butcher...maybe not so important



I don't know


I bet those that don't appreciate good steel have never used it and compared it to shit steel

good steel is why some weapons cost more than others...junk steel is cheap

I'm not dissing your comments or your point, but I can buy a lot of ammo for the same money :P I agree with you, a good blade is a must have, but it's definitely not a primary weapon.

With a blade, it would be tough to get your hands on a shotgun. But, with a shotgun, you can get your hands on about anything :P

You are correct

if you have a ton of shotgun ammo


no one is going to get close to you

this point is based on the idea of....sooner or later...the gunpowder runs out

When the gunpowder goes silent

I want top notch steel.....

buy it now or whimper when you can't get it

I have good steel

would I take my steel and go against a shotgun protected outpost?

nope

but I will wait till they run out of ammo and then....

I love blades and have a lot of them.

However, I spend $5 or less and if I must get rid of it, ok!  Even my large blade was less than $20.

I do have a black handle Buck set, didn’t pay for it and use it rarely!
