Any sharp or pointy thing is great. Can't have to many. In my jurisdiction a couple of guys opened a facility for in door throwing. I think they charge by the hour. Don't serve alcohol. No sure how they are doing.

Myself and my wife for over 10 years did Medieval re-enactments. Mid 1500's. Ran the Scot's Guild. We had (still operational) 10 acres with permanent stages, buildings, 5 pubs, etc. Our Renaissance Faire went for 5 weekends we put through around 25,000 people over the run. Paid professional Jousters, period musicians, acts, traders.

Really great for kids. Members developed their character, had to stay in character in public. We have about a dozen or more different types of swords. My largest the Claymore is near 60 inches tall. Most are display only. Also have war hammer, "Katar" (punch dagger), buckler. We da have 3 or 4 battle ready swords' that can withstand direct edge to edge contact for fights. They were about $400.00 each.

Where the heck else can you swing a sword at someone and not get arrested.

Years ago I was tossing Cabers. Got up to about 125lbs, didn't warmup good. Tore my rotator cuff. About passed out. Had to hide it from my wife so she wouldn't kill me. Eventually seemed to heal. Fast forward some 10 years started giving me issues, had it looked at. Ended up needing a reverse shoulder replacement.

Damn. That sucks, I had a slap tear and found the absolute best prefab/ rehab for getting bloodflow to shoulders are 2lb indian clubs.

That's awesome. Now see if you can get her to participate a little.

I missed when this thread was made, and now I know why you asked in the random thoughts thread if I was talking about a Estwing hatchet. I didn't know they made hatchets. I just know they make the best hammer I've ever owned or used.

You need a bigger backsplash or your house is gonna get phucked worse than a japanese school girl. Or a catholic alter boy. Okay, maybe not a catholic alter boy, they get it pretty bad.
