Yes please, I would very much like for you to ask him....and thank you so much. I know that this isnt anything like sword fighting for real, but i am part of a boffing group and i created a boffing weapon based on the high elven sword, and it works VERY well. My reasons for asking about real world comparisons and effectiveness stem from this rather than any delusions about carrying one slung nover myt shoulder or anything like that . . . thanks for your time, eh?
Ya gotta ask yourself: What would Conan do?
