Remember...you asked for it.
This goes to show that the sword is more than just for show. This is sparring before a tourney. Rapier and cane versus rapier and buckler, a fair combination. I know you can't tell from the picture, but my opponent is female. When someone is coming at you with three feet of steel, their sex doesn't matter. That attitude may not be Gorean, but reality isn't always Gorean.
