    So that's how you pronounce your name. Dang, I've been saying it wrong.

    And you are thinking of making a bat'leth? That would be quite a sight. It would be interesting to see how someone with actual training would use it.

    My guess is it would be used like a rifle with a bayonet...but it probably won't ever happen. Not gonna buy a piece of high carbon steel that big any time soon...

    Finally decided and shot an email looking for a Street Barong figuring it will get more use. But...I see larger version in my future too! :thumbup:
