I named my sword.
I call her "Choppy"
My other one is named "Stabby"
Mine have names:
The Heavy One
The Really Sharp One
The Black-Bladed One
The Short and Heavy one
The Heavy Broadsword
The Heavy Double Broadsword
The Lighter Long One
Well I found a site that list sword names fact, fiction and myth.
Should be of intrest for those who like myself share the idea of naming their sword to find out who's sword belonged to fact, fiction or myth.
Call it if you will romancing the steel. To each their own. I enjoy training with my blades much that I feel that they are becoming a part of me. In developing good swordsmanship this is what one should strive for, becoming one with your weapon. The weapon becomes a extenstion of your body. And if naming my sword draws me closer, hey whatever works.
Understanding that naming your sword or weapon isn't for everyone, and thats okay. This is what makes reading and particpation in MT enjoyable.
I do not name my vehicles.
I do not name my swords or knives.
I will refer to them in the following way:
The Truck - I only have one.
The Bird or the Convertible - for my summer care - i.e. convertible firebird I do not consider this a name as it is part of the name from the manufacturer.
I have a Charlemagne Replica which I refer to as the Charlemagne.
I have a coupld of Kris Daggers I refer to as one of the Kris'.
That being said, I am an engineer. I look for patterns and practicality. But each of these items are mine. I have gone out played with them to make them mine. I have used them and pushed them and myself to make myself understand their characeristics and attributes.
But, that does not mean that others could name their posessions to help make them their own.
If it is an extension of you, why not call it, Larry???
Sorry. Couldn't resist! All in good fun, Larry!
Ya know, I was thinking about this...
Does it count if a guy names his, um, "Pork Sword?"
Not that I would ever name that either... I mean, er.
Sorry. I'll go back in my cage now.
Now, we know men do this butch, macho thing where they say things when other guys are listening so everyone thinks they are hard but in reality they are all soft and fluffy! So I'm guessing that these men really do name their swords but wouldn't be caught dead admitting it ROFL.
Which sword? Being a Star Wars Fan, I'd probably name mine Hand Solo.
Oh wait, you mean the metal ones right? I told you mine are named "Choppy" and "Stabby".
isn't sword boasting a little? maybe dagger or penknife lol!
I mean, I wont call it short, but I did go in to have "Mother" Tattooed on it and all that fit was "Moth"
....or the one that ends
"Short? When I saw it it said Shorty's Bar & Grill San Bernadino California."
Ladies and gents, while the slight digression has been amusing it may well be a good idea to return to the original topic as the (obvious and possibly unavoidable) innuendo is better suited for After Dark than for the PG-13 limit on this forum.
you guys name yer swords? ok...
I call mine
and I tell you, I'd be right busy here somedays.
It's kinda like naming your car ... doesn't change the performance, doesn't really make you insane ... just makes things fun. And if your opponent thinks you're so insane to name your weapon, all the better for you! :EG:
You sure it's not 백치의 살인자?
hehe, maybe you should stop back in the population control thread!
One can only trust the babeling fish so much. Mine must be in backward. That is a much better name for a sword I think.
Though, now that I think of it, doesn't a sword have to do something worthy of note, to be worthy of a name?
Separate names with a comma.
