Was that at splatters?

I tried to get around to meet everyone there... but may have missed a few.... was weird... seemed to be some kind of "tribalism" keeping everyone apart.

Anyway.... I did that piece for Discovery in May... a whole day of shooting for a few minutes...

the 3 second scene of 2 guys wrestling in armour was me and one of my sr students as well.

But it was cool to be stacked up with Tom Clancy in the same show.....

Hated that goob with the Katana....particularly.. the Katana's are curved to "stay in the cut longer" BS, you think a guy who is touted as an "expert" would know why the swords he uses are curved.....

I had issues with a few of the selected weapons. Mainly the PPK.

Ya! In the end, I saw two guys wrestling in armour, I thought it looked a lot like your facility. Very cool, props to you.

During the show last night, when they were talking about the Thompson, the screen suddenly turned pink and it lasted until a commercial, happen to anyone else? That sucked =(.

Okay, my curiosity is piqued, and I know very little of bladed weapons beyond basic metallurgy. And I'm not afraid to ask what may sound like a stupid question: Why ARE the blades curved? To shift the centre of gravity of the weapon? Strength increase through virtual cross-sectional lengthening? Aerodyanmics? Art?

If i'm not mistaken the curved blade increases the cutting area, allowing for a deeper longer cut.

But Brian just said that wasn't the case.

I thought it was to make it easier to cut limbs off, usually the arabs had curved blades ( simitars ) and cut off peoples heads and such
