    Fascinating !!! Thoroughly enjoyed. This article and the videos have initiated an appetite for the history of this (taken for granted by me) mysterious and awesome weapon. There is constant programming and media focus on the guns and tanks of WW1 and WW2, and occasional attention to muskets and cannons, so I found this to be refreshing. Almost like a reverse paradigm.

    Many thanks Leroy. It’s true that since the invention of firearms we’ve become all about the big bang. Nevertheless, the sword and its art are still worthy of admiration and study.

    You’ll be happy to note that this was the first in a thread. Not a sequential series like my Dark Sentiments posts, but this topic will go on for some time addressing the issues impinging on possession and use of personal; i. e. civilian; arms.
