It'll kill you just as dead as the genuine article. Fucking run!
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Style is what distinguishes the lithe movements of the panther from the gibbering of the gibbon.

Moz was a piece of work. A rather lovely lady used to drop by the local pubs selling seafood snacks. One guy gave her some shit one night and Moz kicked the living daylights out of him. Really, seriously. Broke his nose, jaw and several of his ribs. The guy deserved everything he got: the fish lady was a real love. :)

I am beginning to appreciate why you have strict gun laws over there.

You don't need guns to kill people, trust me. Unarmed karate will do the job, if you're good. (And I am)

ed, does the sword have a sheath, and if so is it original to the blade?

It should. Jap blades are works of art and can be rehilted repeatedly ... and get new sheaths. I recall reading somewhere that ancient 17thc blades were in use during ww2. Ancient families/ ancient blades

I read the Japanese had only low-quality ore available, which made steel making a very work-intensive process to get the impurities out.

Similarly in Europe lost horseshoe nails were collected from the streets to forge gun barrels: the constant cold hammering had driven out the impurities.

The famed Damascus steel owed its qualities to an admixture of vanadium (0.02%), which was of course unknown at the time. When the source dried up the tried-and-tested methods suddenly stopped working and by ~ 1800 Damascus steel was no more. (Source: John Emsley, Nature's Building Blocks.)]

Moz would have kicked that's guy's arse. He couldn't often get at me because I'm a head taller but when he got a grip, you were in a shit-load of trouble.

Chris Little fancied himself as a local hardman until someone blew his head off.

I can't prove it, but I suspect Moz and his gang were involved.

To be fair, violent crime is pretty rare in Britland. You'd generally have to be involved with some pretty nasty people to be at any real risk. It's a serious offence to carry an offensive weapon. A lock knife with a two-inch blade will get you a prison sentence.
