    Great work really like the idea! How about weaponizing lego? You could build a simple club and even a crossbow. Got this idea from watching your other "weaponizing toys" ideas. ;) I think it would give room for some crazy ideas involved with lego. Just a suggestion hope you dont mind! Cheers :)

    I have never seen a wooden sword as a slashing weapon.
    I only heard of the japanese Boken that the Samurais used as training weapon. And they could kill with that one too:)

    I've read many stories of Pacific Islanders who fashioned swords from wood, steel being non-existant.
    In fiction, Defoe mentions their wooden blades with much respect for their capabilities.

    After seeing your new "nutcracker" video, i wonder what a steel infused wooden sword would do.
    I believe it would definitely do better in the gelatin test. :)
