Can we get some love for the old fashioned European weapons? I'm sick of all the katanas, fantasy swords, and guns flying around here. Spears and axes will stay the true kings of weaponry

>I don't imagine why, even then, a sword pistol combo would provide any benefit. Sword weighs down the gun making it harder to use
The weight of the sword counters the force of the projectile reducing recoil and allowing for a larger projectile while maintaining accuracy.

A bearded axe I made. I also have one of the older ones from Corwin Arms.

I should rehaft this one with a "drop down" haft (one that has no shoulder, and the head is fitted from the bottom).

Sure looks like it, I thought the same.
From the descriptions it sounded like a great weapon. Easy to repair and produce, the obsidian shards had molecule-thin edges, meaning they were hella fucking sharp!
It's the swordbat of my people, and I'd be honored to use one.

Sarah Palin 15/04/30(Thu)08:50 No. 15138

Not an improvised weapon.

Yes, it can cut off a limb, if going through the joint. There are Spanish reports of their soldiers having the heads of their horses cut off by them on occasion.

The issue is that their blades shatter when hitting steel armor, rendering them sticks afterwards. Though, the one in the picture, albeit pretty, does not look properly made. These are fucking swords, not clubs with blades on them. I've seen the drawings of the originals' and some of the moves... Not a damned baseball bat.

On topic... Put a rock in a sock, or get a pointy stick. An improvised weapon is a temporary measure. I can kill a dozen people with a pen or two in under two minutes if they don't flee... But I'd rather have a nice piece of steel. Understand?

Where can I purchase a true Katana in Japan? And what would be the price range?

If not possible any places that make great quality katanas from with better steel/carbon or iron?

Kult of athena has some Kris Cutlery katanas for some awesome prices. I bet they would easily be on par with the ronins and hanweis. I have one of there teutonic longswords and it is very high quality.

You can get something awesome for around 200 give or take if you are not as concerned with the tsuka being real rayskin and silk wrapped,etc.

Are you guys all american ?

See, I'm french. No, wait, don't pee at me, let me explain.

In this piece of shit of country, weapons are said as "murdering things" and "devilized" (I don't know if I can be understood on this word but I give it a try) as hell.

I can't understand this commie shit. Take a wrench and hit the head of someone with all you can giveā€¦ The result will be the same as shooting someone right between the eyes. That's just for practicing in case of war, hunt, or just shoot at targets for the pleasure to do this as a sport. As I do.

(Also, our medias are telling that America is fucked up to not prohibit weapons, and french dummies fall right on the trap.)

What do you guys think of this crap ?

Why would you do it that many times anyways? Once would kill them.

Sarah Palin 14/12/11(Thu)05:47 No. 15100

>French media have about the same policy regarding gun culture than all other media in Europe. Let's face it, most journalists and editors are socialists, therefore they vilify gun culture and gun owners. Every time a gun owner commits a crime or commits suicide, they will point to gun ownership. The fact that most gun related crimes are committed by foreigners who use black market guns is constantly ignored.

It is pretty much the same in the U.S. to be honest.

Like most things you get what you pay for. Stay away from ceramic blades unless you have the skill to care for them properly

I have never really got around to getting a decent set of kitchen knives despite my admirable knife and weapon collection. Imo I would probably go for a Victorinox set for around 100$. I find that as long as you steel the knives after every use, You will be good.. Even with store brand kitchen blades.A strop after every steeling would be good too with some green compound.

How's the edges from the factory,OP?

Sarah Palin 13/10/12(Sat)07:37 No. 14812

Mine is a $30 maserin poker. It gets the job done and I love the ergonomics. 440c steel is perhaps the best edc steel out there with superior performance to aus8 and better rust resistance.

I know it is a devisive issue but I have never been sold on the opinel knives. People love them or hate them. Its just pain carbon steel and the lock mechanism fails after a few months of heavy use. Aside from that it is bulky.

I recently came into a Mosin-Nagant in decent condition. Whatever the previous owner had used to lubricate the mechanisms with was some dark brown, amber-ish colored gunk that looked like it was really ready to be cleaned off and replaced. It looked like some sort of very poorly refined oil. I've cleaned the entire mechanism and only about half way through began to wonder if there was a particular point in this gunk.

Now that I've cleaned it off and oiled it down, I've come to the opinion that the bolt is a bit harder to operate than it was before I cleaned it. I'm wondering if maybe this thicker grease was partially to help offset the grinding of the bolt caused by a particularly sturdy spring. So what does /w/ use to oil their Mosin-Nagant to keep the bolt loose?

PS, there's an empty slot for what looks like a rod in the wooden body under the barrel. Was this rod used to force out stuck shells, or did it have some other purpose? How retarded would it be to mount a laser sight in there?

Do not use Windex or other household cleaners. Waste of money. All you are doing is trying to wash away the corrosive salts deposited in the barrel. Boiling water alone will accomplish this.

Sarah Palin 14/07/25(Fri)06:47 No. 14993

Yeah, windex is way to dilute to offer more than negligable benefit over hot water

Sarah Palin 14/08/10(Sun)07:27 No. 15014

I've read in some reloading manuals that some corrosive salt deposits can get trapped under copper residue from the rounds, and ammonia, being a copper solvent, can remedy this. Hoppes #9 has ammonia in it, so as long as you use water and maybe a little ammonia you're good.

I have the opportunity to buy a NCO Shin-Gunto sword from 1943,
good condition and with serial number matched scabbard.
What would be a good price for it, just so I dont get ripped off?

Sarah Palin 14/06/11(Wed)18:23 No. 14969

Since it seems that nobody is going to answer I'll give it a try. As far as I know Shin-Gunto are nice WW2 memorabilia but they are considered to be quite poor katanas since most of them were machine-made and oil-quenched. If you still want it, from what I've seen, an honest price should be around 1400-2200$
Still, don't take my word for it, do a little research before you shell out major bucks.

What does any body think about getting a PPS-43 parts kit. Most of them cost about 70 dollars which seems to be too cheap. Experience prefered.

Sarah Palin 14/01/17(Fri)07:28 No. 14883

That does seem pretty cheap. I have one of those and i love it.

However, i know that theres some kind of rule out there about the collapsible stock, so i'd make sure to check your local regulations about that.

The one i bought, the stock is permanently folded up over the reciever.

Fun as hell to shoot though.

Sarah Palin 14/04/16(Wed)03:52 No. 14952

A folding stock on a rifle wih a barrel less than 16 inches is considered a short barreled rifle, you would have to do extra paper work with he atf and aquire a title 2 tax stamp. I friend of mine has one of these with the stock pinned making it a pistol (less the 16 inches barrel has to be a pistol or an sbr).

Sarah Palin 14/04/21(Mon)20:01 No. 14957

go for it, they look pretty sweet. Although I have never used one so you should probably just ignore me.
