Best weapon of all, but only if you stock it with plenty of ammunition.

This dates from medieval times.  It is the cross bow.

Silent and very deadly at certain ranges.  Just will not reload too quickly. Chuckle

Nothing like a steel bolt flying through the air, aimed at some mammal organism's heart.  Quite effective.

Getting older, so cocking the thing is an issue for me. I could barely when I was a hale and hearty. Winch cocker, way to go.

Always good to have many different types of weapons around. I made some lightweight tomahawks designed for flesh. Fit nicely in those leather type folders for work. Don't even realize its their. Ive noticed....some weapons are cool, but if they are heavy and you cant conceal...they get left at home.

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

If you were a toolmaker, and I am, you could make your own, (and I do..;))))


God is a well stuck 7 iron.
I promptly celebrate the word of God religiously at 6am at Our Lady of Brightondale country club every Sunday, and whenever I find myself on a golf course or pool table anywhere.

I made a cold chisel in sixth grade.
