Mine is a family where people over a certain age having their personal blades for everyday carry is simply a fact of life.
Kerambits are quite popular (and this type of blade actually has a few Bulgarian names, since it's been in use here for millennia). But balisongs are just nice!
I just realised something...if you use the rules for Randomly determining opposition in CT, the rules actually work pretty much like Usagi Yojimbo/Urban Jungle/Vital Hearts by Sanguine. Except CT has less crunch mostly (when it comes to equipment, CT has more).
Last few days are fun!
My 2yo son used a kerambit for the first time. (It was a folder and I allowed him to use the handle's spike to break the ice - literally - on the kid's slide).
I'm playing Sleeping Dogs, taking notes for RPG campaigns. I *love* that game almost as much as Fallout, now, and might end up liking it even more!
Also, training Wing Chun/JKD, and liking it more than I expected (revisiting sambo soon).
Next time you hear about preserving a tradition, any tradition, remember this quote:
"You must surpass me. If the student does not surpass the teacher, then the art begins to die." —Wang Kiu
It's a full traditional quote - by a traditional master (google the name and Ip Man together...)!
