Meet… the Viscerator.

I recently came across another wrist mounted fantasy blade, much in the tradition of the Flying Dragon Claw, Critical Mass and Critical Mass II I blogged about many moons ago. This one was begging to be blogged because I ran into the same weapon on two (count ’em, 2) separate weapons sites, under two different names:

The Fire Guardian / Viscerator

Fire Guardian / Viscerator

What we have here folks, is a weapon that seems to have been living two lives. One life, a good and honorable Fire Guardian. The other life, a cruel and heartless Viscerator. One of these lives has a future… and one of them does not…

*ahem*

OK, if you actually picked up on the fact that the last paragraph includes lines from “The Matrix” then you aren’t in any position to mock me because you are just as much a nerd as I.

But getting back to the topic at hand, (or on hand, as it were) this Viscerator is a multi bladed weapon. It has a large blade above, attached to a handle bracketed on either side by two smaller blades, and above on either side, a set of long black s-curved blades.

Extending rearward, we have what looks to be a set of rather menacing spikes, a short one above, and a long one below, with a wrist trap attached on either side of the the junction between the bottom rear spike and the main bracket of the whole contraption. Though a little large and probably heavy, I could see this weapon being quite handy for underground, to-the-death cage fighting, much like the others.

However looking at that long rear spike, I am tempted to say that “Viscerator” is a good name for this weapon. Simply because it could very well eviscerate it’s wielder while in use. Talk about having no future. Epic Phail…

    Sounds like a badass weapon, in any case. I’m a bit confused on how the weilder is supposed to use it effectively though, what with that 10″ long steel spike. Is it permanently attached to the weapon, or is it removable, like the side spike is? I assume one would have to be VERY careful using the Viscerator.

    Yeah, This is iffy at best. I honestly don’t recall if the spike is removable or not, but it’s in such a bad position, it is probably more dangerous for the wielder than against an opponent with it in place. 10″ is really pushing the boundary of what an average adult male could safely wear on their arm without giving themselves an impromptu steel iv…

    No, no, no. You coat the rear-facing spike in painkillers. Then, when you get injured, you flex and stab yourself. Suddenly all pain goes away, and you go on to fight more. You end up dying anyway, but hey.

    Actually that’s the best idea I’ve heard yet. And I’ll do you one better. If you are stupid adventurous enough to try and use this, I say coat the rearward facing spike in poison…
