    I found this forum by accident, as I was searching for a particular knife.
    I'm a Theatrical Fight Director in Canada, and I am often searching for particular weapons to be used as props in shows. A person on this forum is selling something I might want, and I will probably find more things here in the future!

    If this works, it's a picture of what my wife & I call the "Wall of Doom."
    It's about 1/4 of our collection. Wall of Doom.jpg

    Welcome to the JD :thumbsup:


    FYI your katana are upside down, when resting in the stand you don't want the sharp side of the blade pressing on the saya, if you flip them over the spine will instead.

    Quite correct RazorSharp, I'll turn them over! However, it doesn't really matter in this case, as like all my weapons, the edge has been ground down and dulled for use in the theatre.

    A couple of other pics in case people might be interested.
    One of my hand built cannons being fired in a production of The Three Musketeers, and a collection of rapiers, transitionals, & a couple of smallswords.

    That's what I figured in your case with them being props, but just wanted your display to look correct :manganr:

    By the way that cannon is pure awesome! Is it all for looks, or would it withstand a light load?

    Ever build a scaled down golf ball cannon?

    That cannon IS a light load!
    Total weight including carriage is about 60 lbs!
    It is a pyrotechnic device, firing a flash charge. (The muzzle is actually only about 5 inches deep - that is where the charge is placed, & it is detonated by a remote switch on the carriage.)
    The barrel is lightweight galvanized steel sheet metal, with foam pipe insulation cut in half & wrapped around it for the reinforcements, a fence-post topper for a cascabel, wood dowel for trunnions, etc. I designed it to fit through a standard 30" doorway, to be easily lifted and moved by two people, and to fit in the back of a minivan. Theatre props have some very particular requirements!
