‘Nature has made up her mind that what cannot defend itself shall not be defended’
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Disclaimer. With the over abundance of ‘expertise’ on the internet it should be noted that I have no real experience in anything, least of all having to use an edged weapon to defend myself. I tend to see Close Quarters Combat as an academic pursuit at best (one that has synergies with my boxing and grappling background as well as in my interest in staying alive). It is also an activity I plan to hopefully never have to engage in. I am however as opinionated as the next pundit about all things sharp and pointy and feel the need to express myself thusly.
