As a reminder, even doing solo work with sharps, for test-cutting and the like, can be quite dangerous.

Reminds me of the guy who accidentally sheathed his sword in his thigh instead of the saya he was aiming for.  I think he was distracted momentarily by someone coming in?  In any case, yea...nasty accident.  Stay safe, gentlemen.

Shared it around.

At least the guy could laugh a bit about it.

Make sure to watch the damage recap at the end. It looks simple, but the stitches and explanation... ick.

Yep, from watching this video, I know what damage a katana can do, but a Longsword?  I would not want to know myself, could be very very painful.

Lord Dane:  Thank you, I wanted to set the best examples of practicing with sharps so that everyone benefits from a right example while acknowledging the dangers that come with it.

Now we know how being 'sharp' is associated with the intelligence factor. Someone must have been lacking common sense & careless one day during swordplay & next thing you know.. Eureka!!! A catch phrase is born.  :P That was sharp thinking. lol

Hmm, maybe Me and Aiden should practice with sharps one day.
Although I don't think many would deem that Wise.

NO! That would be the epitome of foolhardiness! That level of training should only be attempted after many years of rebated steel training.

DITTO: NO fighting with live sharps until you are experienced and properly monitored (especially with each other unless you want to be one sibling less).  You guys needs lots of years before that is even attempted alone.
