Discussion in 'Misc. Knife Arts' started by Rich Parsons, Sep 23, 2005.
Could we have a discussion on what would be a good forum description?
If it cuts it can be in here,
Deatails of the knife/sword
Why and how it is used or not used
Pics of the blade if possible
Is it for Knife Arts in the sense that Sayoc Kali is often thought of as a knife-only art (yes, I know they would find this a limiting description!), or for miscellaneous knife use of any sort?
I would say any knife arts.
I also don't see any problem with an area for "sporting" knifes or carry knifes
Makes sense to me. A lot of people carry folders that aren't traditional Filipino blades but that they would use with FMA techniques.
I mean to get myself a folding Karambit some day. I got some recommendations on MartialTalk but haven't followed through yet. Maybe I'll ask my wife for one for Christmas...er, maybe not. I don't think she'd want a live blade under the tree. She's traditional that way!
Live Blade and the Tree
If you have a real tree, there was a live blade involved somewhere in its past. Maybe you can use that as a rationalization for her to get you your folder.
Actually, even if it isn't a live tree, my bet is there was a blade involved with it during manufacture.
I may have to buy it for myself. We have a nice knife shop near me, but it doesn't carry Karambits.
The knife shop closed, but I did get the folding Karambit! I don't carry it veruy often though. It doesn't fit in my pocket as nicely as a regular folder does, and that's where I like to carry.
