        In Aus you can carry any knife so long as you have legitimate reason for it. A tradie on lunch break with their work knife on their belt is not against the law. If you were a Japanese tuna monger and you had one of those heckoff big tuna swords that would be fine too.

        The Anglo-Saxon tradition is literally rolling over A different race than you and reviling them while exploiting them so it stands to reason that ethnic groups classes and so on are played off against each other particularly on the nose in the Commonwealth and that a criminal would have essentially more rights than a citizen who is being attacked in that moment it’s somehow more Insidious than just arresting you for criticizing the state

      • Cecelia Drakensang In Seattle says:

        You can defend yourself with these knives inside your home, you just can’t carry said blades out with without purpose. This is based on the assumption your attacker would not be breaking the law either by carrying such a blade. Then it is hands on hands, and you can freely fight them back.

        But this is such a teenage thread. None of you would be able to deal with stabbing someone, those that would who claim self defense still risk the legalities of it, especially if it is from a person of a protected color. Even life imprisonment. Not to mention a robbery that might result in you losing 20 dollars can escalate to them stabbing you to death if you pull out a weapon.

        None of this happens when you follow basics, such as not being in a shitty neighborhood late at night.

        Everyone in this thread is a teenager, white, who has a few little knives in his room he shows off on the internet. I know it, you know it.

        swords will never return. they were replaced by rapiers for a good reason, being that commonfolk don’t wear armor and it’s 1/4th the weight

        • Anonymous says:

          a rapier is still a kind of sword you silly person.
          average rapier was around 1kg.
          average knightly one-handed sword was also 1kg, and 1kg is again also the low end for a typical two handed sword of any type.
          so the rapier was never any lighter.

          europe simply came to favor stabbing over slashing for aesthetic reasons and so their swords developed to be more stabby than slashy.

          • future says:

            learning stuff!
            also not just aestetic reasons, even the millitary made the switch from previous sabers. they surely must be more effective.

            still aesthetic. they felt that slashing was gross and barbaric, that stabbing a man to death was much more dignified.
            even when they were still using sabers they would only sharpen the tip.

            i could understand cost saving and rapiers having mire streamlined production or whatnot but not ‘stabby wounds look less gruesome’
            it’s the military. they deal in explosive shells, bombs and frag granades. leveling entire cities. why would tuey give a shit about how enemy corpses look?

            i get dueling rapiers being used only to draw blood or sth but the military wouldn’t shoot their own leg like that.

      I’ve had two of these, broken the tips off of both of them while using them as a pry bar. My nine y/o Douk w/ zero finish and the basic carbon steel blade remains intact, despite seeing far more use. The Mercator is the superior design with its locking mechanism and (potentially) one-handed deployment, but the new school stainless blade is weak.

      Plus, while the stronger stainless handle of the otter/mercator is objectively better, it has no balls, no mystique, some placid animal chilling in its natural environment, vs. a murderer, the god of doom, the symbol of a secret society of cultists that burned down the homes of those that crossed them, a knife that was literally outlawed in north Africa due to its use as a murder weapon, which is your choice?

        what? absolutely not. it’s not possible. the backspring is WAY too strong and it doesn’t have any opening aid other than the nail nick
        >but the new school stainless blade is weak.
        not in my experience, however even if you thought so, they are available with carbon steel blades, you just have to be okay with getting the black version instead, which offer both variants
        >Plus, while the stronger stainless handle of the otter/mercator is objectively better
        actually not 100% sure on that, the handle stainless steel is softer because it needs to be folded over during the manufacturing process so it can scratch still i guess
        >it has no balls, no mystique
        it’s quiet literally an over 100 year old knive manufactured in the legendary solingen, germany and has been the same since times of pre ww1

          Nah. Hold the bottom third of the handle and give it a quick snap of the wrist and it’ll deploy. Not the most comfortable, but it works. I’ve heard of people modifying them to make this easier.

          The Mercator uses thicker steel on the handles than the Douk does, and the Douk Douk’s handle is soft mild steel.

            ah so you meant the douk-douk. makes sense in hindsight.
            much much stronger in comparison, but with it being rivited in 3 points and having a erfect spacer in the knive blade that prevents deforming into itself.
