The wonderful thing about the internet is not necessarily the democratizing nature of a global network but the fact that we can stay a computer screen away from all the people who live there. Case in point - Cold Steel Knives; a company that makes tasteful walking sticks/hilariously impractical medieval weapons for either smashing watermelons or 'personal defence'. The choice, I imagine, is entirely up to you. I imagine this kind of thing will probably end up producing some horrible selfies.
Raping, pillaging and the viking groove may now be long out of fashion, hurled there by the likes of firearms, and people's overwhelming desire not to be raped and pillaged. Still, the sweaty, stocky employees of the company seem to be the stripe of person who failed to get into the army, the ones who were really 'into military history' or felt that all their powers of imagination just couldnt make LARPing real enough. In all fairness, hacking the shit out of a human size hunk of meat or some industrial tubing with a Scottish Claymore looks incredibly gratifying and quite frankly, all of this is much safer than an AR-15.
