    That does look like a nice sword. Here we also have sword makers who make real swords that are not just for decoration. Anyway, I do know you also still have knights, but they usually don't use swords that much anymore do they.

    All military officers and warrant officers have a sword, on the occasions they wear them, if threatened they will use them. They can also be used in war .

    I'm a knight. Went to a medieval dinner at the castle in Cochem Germany in 1989. I competed against 5 other guys in several contests and ended up winning. It was fun. I don't have a sword, though.

    I know Cochem, when we were posted in Germany we all used to zoom down the autobahn and camp there at weekends. The campsites used to be full of Brit service people.

    I was stationed at Hahn ab, and spent most of my off duty time drinking beer or wine somewhere along the mosel river. :)

    You would probably get a nice tall bier. Mind you if you could get a sword there, it would probably be made by VW and come with fluffy dice (a phenomenon always mistaken as being Essex) and Sat-Nav.

    Yeah, most my veg intake involved a kebab. Broccoli though, with loads of gloopy gravy.

    If I got my food correctly frites are kinda like french fries
    Who needs vegetables when you got bacon!

    Some vegetables are okay, but not a alternative for meat and preferably not on the pizza :)

    Frites are French fries. Pommes frites. In Germany they are often served with mayonnaise. In America with ketchup. The Canadians do it right, though: chicken gravy and cheese curds. Yummy.
