Cougar; I can tell you exactly what would happen to any 'sheeple' who witnessed Jim March deploy his Outsider. I know a lot about the Outsider, and know Jim, having met him at KN'98.
Despite the above, when Jim, giving advance warning, pulled that Klingon short sword out, I nearly lost sphincter control. I am happy I didn't, as Jim and I were visiting the hospitable Ralf and his charming wife, Kazuko. I am not sure I could have tolerated the shame. I must admit, that while Ralf and Kazuko stayed outwardly composed, they did not approach Jim while he had that blade in his hand, and there was much nervous laughter.
When Jim later deployed his handmade double Vaquero Grande, I did start to dive off the balcony. It was about 20 feet to the ground, but at the time, it seemed the logical thing to do. Fortunately, Jim's good humor and mild manners kept me on terra firma.
Much as I like Jim, I think there should be SOME limits on the types of blades a Sasquatch (or a Klingon/wookie hybrid; none of us are really quite sure) can own.
