Melee Battles to Come
By Eirik Bloodaxe

An excellent piece on Japanese swords and swordsmanship, which may be of use in the post-apocalyptic wastelands to come, and in the present wastelands:

Feeling depressed lately – buying a sword may help. Better the sharpness of a katana, than the sharpness of a woman’s tongue.

Here are some interesting comments on the preoccupation of Islamists with knives and swords:

“ARIBAULT, Minn.- Abdinzak Ahmed Farah allegedly threatened people in downtown Faribault with a knife on July 24.

According to the “Faribault Daily News,” Farah was reported by witnesses to be eating raw beef with the knife. Later Farah would start asking people if they wanted to play a game. Although Farah was asked to leave, he would later return to the area and start threatening people with that same knife. Eventually, Farah even proceeded to chase people with the knife and threw it at bystanders.

Eventually, Farah was confronted by a witness on the street who called the police. Farah threatened to kill the witness, saying, “I will kill whoever calls the police.” The witness then restrained Farah, reports the Faribault Daily News.

Farah was charged with two counts of second-degree assault and threatening violence, all of which are felonies, and fourth-degree damage to property, the Faribault Daily News reported.

A Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension report, indicates that crime within Minnesota is decreasing.

However, the amount of violent crimes committed in Minnesota has increased. A total of 13,407 violent crimes (including such things as murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault) were recorded in Minnesota in 2016.

This was a bit under a one percent increase in violent crime since 2015.

As Alpha News reported, aggravated assault has increased by 0.6 percent.

Earlier this year, St. Cloud, Minnesota experienced an attack at the Crossroads Center Mall where a young Somali man, Dahir Adan, attacked 10 shoppers with a knife before being taken down by off-duty police officer, Jason Falconer.

Another knife attack carried out this past year by a Somali, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, at Ohio State University– which came a few months after the attack at the St. Cloud mall.

Knives and swords play a prominent role within Islamic ideology. Some of the verses within the Quran that seem to advocate violence are called the “sword verses,” and within traditionalist Islamic societies, such as Saudi Arabia, the sword is often used as an instrument of execution.”

The cult of the sword among these bearded folks is, I think, an expression of barbarian anti-modernity values. Whatever one wants to say about this, there is no shortage of testosterone here. I constantly search for the example where one of these kitchen knife fighters meets a Western-style melee fighter who goes one-on-one using more bad ass improvized melee weapons, such as a heavy club (thick steel pipe), a tire iron, a long-handed spade, garden fork, or any number of heavy objects from the home and garden store. Even a length of really thick rubber hose can deliver a thump, let alone what one other guy at this site suggested: a thick slice of copper electrical cable. Let the good times roll.

I was very impressed by the part of Mr. La Fond's "The Logic of Steel" that touched on the use of a leather jacket as a defense against edge-weapons. Wrapped around the arm as a physical barrier, or use like a bullfighter's cape to momentarily obscure the assailant's vision.

On account of whites' cultural antipathy towards edge-weapons and the greater motivation of the authorities to prosecute whites for carrying, if not using, knives (more booty, more political capital), it seems to me that props such as hats, coats, walking sticks and weapons of opportunity offer the plausible deniability which whites will increasingly need to navigate a hostile justice system.

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

"Savatte (its original spelling, meaning "old boot") was the old fighting style of the slums, its origins supposedly lying with a French law, which held that one's fists were to be considered a deadly weapon during any assault. To circumvent the law, toughs took to using open hands and feet, with slaps, backhands, and eye-pokes taking the place of the fist and the pointed toes or hardened heels of their boots being used as weapons to deliver plenty of kicks, stomps, and purring."

My 2 cents. The key to survival in the future existential crisis will be social. The Mohammedan's knife is not the problem, it's his ethnic solidarity. It's not you against him and his knife, but you against him and his uncles, cousins, brothers etc.. and their knives.

Whites, however well armed individually, are doomed until they start to act collectively, and that presupposes coming around to conceiving themselves as something more restrictive that "human being" or "passport holder of X".

Not for no reason does Hollywood always present the white hero as the archetypal loner, Mr. High Plains Drifter. A sure recipe for extinction away from the big screen.
