Welcome to the The Realm of the Dark Blade.

If you haven’t figured it out, I am more or less a bladed weapons fanatic. Swords, axes, knives, whatever. It’s all good. And I have spent many years ogling weapons of many kinds. I’ve always thought it would be nice to keep a record of all the interesting things I’ve come across over the years, perhaps even share what I’ve found with other enthusiasts.

Now, thanks to the amazing technology of teh intarweb, and the wunnerful blog, it is now so very easy to chronicle whatever suits one’s fancy. I wish could have started sooner, there are so many interesting weapons I found that I wished I could go back and talk about, but alas, I have not been able to ever find them again.

Anyway, this blog is my attempt to record all of the amazing weapon ideas and the interesting designs that others have come up with for all to see. Along the way I’ve tried to inject a little (occasionally irreverent) humor, a few little known facts and sometimes a little education into my work. I don’t consider myself an expert by any means. I just enjoy sharing what I find in the hopes that other like-minded folks will get the same kick out of these things that I do. Hopefully, you will not find my efforts wanting!

So, without further ado, I give you:

The Realm of the Dark Blade

    Hello, what an absorbing blog – thank you. I’d like to find out what I can about Mughal period weaponry (Persian court in South Asia, 1500s – lste Eighteenth Century). Could you suggest some sources? Appreciate your help. Alix

    Hello Alix, interestingly I just ran across a “Mughal styled” sword a few days ago, and had plans to blog about it. I hadn’t intended to go into any kind of in-depth history of Mughal period weaponry (though there is actually quite a lot one could say about it), but I’ll see what I can find for you…

    Hey thanks for the links now im just wondering if you have anyway of chaining them to your arms. Like with a metal chain. Got any tips?

  7. March 27, 2008 at 11:46 pm

    LOL Ok, come on now, you can’t come up with a simple way to chain something to your arms? LOL OK, ok, How about a set of leather gauntlets or bracers? Anything solid that you can strap to your arm and attach a ring to should do. If you use leather, make sure you use grommets, and also attach the ring to the inside (palm side) close to your wrist. Then you can attach your chain to that.

    Just don’t go trying anything stupid if you get a set of these and finally get it attached to your wrist. Flying blades on a chain are 10 times more dangerous than normal… Trust me on this. I speak from experience… 😀

    Hey, you guys were on Attack of the Show. That makes you cool. 🙂

    LOL, I would argue that we were cool even before before we showed up on Attack of the Show, but that would just be my ego talking… Thanks 🙂 …

    zac’s Zanpakutō:zac carries Light sealed into the form of a dagger. At the command “Harrow, Light!” it transforms into a large hurlbat which throws off sparks. It deflects missiles.What’s Your Zanpakutō?
