I think it would be easy enough to make a wooden messer waster. All I'd need is a jigsaw, and maybe a router, roto-tool, or slave willing to do a lot of sanding to round off the edges. I believe the same tools would work for nylon. I already plan to buy a jigsaw. If someone finds a good deal on a router, or has one I can borrow, then I believe we'd be in business. I already plan to reproduce whatever is inside of the leather dussacks whenever John Knoch takes the one apart that he has. The tools should be pretty much the same.

Yes, I think we need a messer made from more substantial wood than the kind I took a risk with and bought. One of them broke at the cross and handle after just a few minutes of moderate sparring. I can glue it back together I guess but those cutlasses are only good for drill work, and even then they are very light for that if that's all they will be used for.

I say I bring my steel machete back, grind the blade into a squared off blunt, wrap it in foam and tape, and battle! Haha jk.

I thought this thread deserves a bit of an update since one of our members, Jeremy, has graciously donated SIX wooden dussacks to the club equipment coffers. Let the dussacking begin!
