    I can’t do favorite songs. I can never make up my mind.

    Nice rapier in the icon, there. 🙂

      Why thank you 😀 I’m taking fencing classes now from these guys, since I know the guy who runs the school. It is fun 😀 That’s one of the school’s swords though – I’ll need to get my own at some point.

      I’ve already changed my mind about a couple of those songs.

        Very cool. Regular fencing or stage combat?

        I’m guessing that’s a fencng blade and not the heavier “real” blade. Paul Chen makes some pretty good fencing rapiers. They’re supposedly about $200 but I found one from an online store for about $125. I have one of his regular blades, too, but it’s too heavy and unbalanced to be any use as a combat sword.

          Regular Historical fencing with Rapiers. I think a lot of the rapiers they have at the school are Han Wei and/or Paul Chen… those are the names I keep hearing anyhow.
