    Chinese 2 handed broadsword (Dai Do / Da Dao).



    I did the custom wraps, guard, and ring pommel. Also ground off the live edge for safety when practicing. Both swords are typical/"regulation" military size and weight at 3.5 pounds.

    This sword was used by military in the Sino-Japanese war, mainly against rifles and bayonets. Also used by militia.



    My great-grandteacher along with others, taught this weapon to the military. This sword was particularly famous for use in defense of the Great Wall (battle of Xifeng Kou).

    A training manual by my grandteacher.

    Mostly dealing with my 89 yo mom's not so great health.

    I did do a partial overhaul on the Mustang transmission in January, and installed a watts link a couple weeks ago.

    Just started playing with hobby stuff again recently.

    Is raising kids a hobby? If so it's my main hobby.

    Aside from that, I still love video/computer games, and I love the shooting sports (USPSA).

    Nope. Definitely not a hobby. Not even close. No way. No how. I could go on...

    It's a job, you can't just drop your kids and restart 5 years later.
