    I'm trying to track down a sword that would be able to withstand actual use and is not for display use/ replica.

    Any suggestions or places you guys would recommend?

    If you don't have some sort of training in effective wielding of that sort of melee weapon, then please don't bother.

    i'm sure it wouldn't be listed as an act of self defense if you used a sword versus discharging a couple of rounds into someone if they broke into your house :rofl:

    Melee weapons are not a good choice for home defense when compared to a firearm. :ugh:

    The chainsaw just seems like it would be the more obvious option. :dunno:


    Everyone talks about how intimidating the sound of a shotgun being 'racked'
    is. Now just imagine the "wump wump wump WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH"
    as you pull hte cord on a chainsaw.

    Hell, I think I may go to Walmart and get me one, they're open at 3am right?
