Re: Article: A Basic Weapons Bag by "The Mirror"

I have one question. What are you doing that you need to wash your weapons bag?

My mother made me a bokken bag a few months back, but it's about an inch too short :-p so I have my hanbo in it instead, now, coz the bokkens don't quit fit :-(

Re: Article: A Basic Weapons Bag by "The Mirror"

Hi !
I want to share a tip with you all !
Music stores sell bags for speaker stands that will fit both jos and bokkens ,
they have shoulder straps and have plenty of room.
Also they are very moderately priced ,in Denmark they are about 33$ -
worth checking out.

yours - Chr.B.

Many folks toss them in and out of car trunks. Some folks need to carry them in bad weather. Life happens: Here is something from one of my customers:
"An amazing thing happened on the way to the dojo last Thursday....half-way through a heavy rain shower my vehicle decided to hydro-plane. It (and myself, I had been reduced to passenger status by this time) spun nose into the median concrete divider, flip on roof, slide down highway 20 - 30', flip back on wheels and just sit there. (Later, when I was requested to move it to the side I just put the key, started it up and drove it to the side. It was a Suzuki Samurai, so of course it was tough.) Weapons bag and myself came through well. Outside of blow to dignity, all emerged unscathed. After a washing, bag remains as stylish as ever. (It must be about a year old now.) "

I'm also told that, for folks who need to check weapons in as airplane baggage, the best/cheapest thing is to go to a hardware store and get a length of ...dang I forget the name, that lighweight rigid plastic piping...and just tape the ends securely.

Re: Article: A Basic Weapons Bag by "The Mirror"

I just made a bag and it turned out great!!
I used some windbreaker type material so it should be really durable. Thanks for posting the instructions.
