Weapons

Thirty years I've been asked about the bo stick.

And the jo stick.

And the lochaber axe.

You tube needs more weapons.

looks like the spear still maintains the title of best weapon for one on one combat in open spaces

“I did not need a manual of Martian etiquette to know what reply to make, for, in fact, I was so wild with anger that I could scarcely refrain from drawing my pistol and shooting him down for the brute that he was; but he stood waiting with drawn long-sword, and my only choice was to draw my own and meet him in a fair fight with his choice of weapons or a lesser one. This latter alternative is always permissible; therefore, I could have used my short-sword, my hatchet, my dagger or my fists had I wished, and been entirely within my rights, but I could not use firearms or a spear while he held only his long-sword.” (Princess of Mars, XIV, p.78)
