    Have your friends dress up as orcs and stand in front of your house then take your ranger sword and climb on the roof then jump down yelling Elendil

    Regarding the "being pulled over by a cop" issue, I'm planning to get a copy of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution and carry it around with me! :p

    Are you saying that germans don't have the same views on swords as the scots?

    no, certainly not !

    if you`re catched by a cop while running around with a sword on your belt (no matter if its fully functional or not) you`d be arrested immediately and they would check if you´re mentally ill :D

    i`m not joking, never try bearing a weapon of any kind in the public kind in germany !

    Or in the US. I had a friend practicing his Tai Chi sword form in a park using a wooden training sword. The police were soon on hand. Although not arrested, he came close and his "sword" was confiscated.

    Thanks sefrenox. I was just interested because I've heard how the germans are famous for their swordsmanship and also since my family origins are from Germany and Scotland.

    Mithrandir, I'm surprised that your friend got arrested for a wooden sword. In Kansas we have a group in the park that practices using fighting knives like Legolas and an S.C.A. group that re-enacts battles there. But of course even Viggo Mortensen got checked by the police when he was using his ranger sword outside of the gym.

    maybe i didnt word my last post very well, i didn`t want to say that the germans have any antipathy against swords, all i wanted to say is that we have very strict laws considering any kinds of weapons.

    please don`t draw conclusions on the germans` sight of swords or on the german craftmanship on my last post ;).

    That's why I keep my sword practice confined to my back yard. It borders on a park, though, so it's fun to get soem weird looks.
