... but I arrived home yesterday to find a copy of the Bud K Catalog ( waiting in my mailbox.

Having never heard of them, I had to peruse their website to find out that Bud K Worldwide, Inc is a "50,000 square foot facility ... situated on 10 acres in the community of Moultrie, Georgia", which offers a "product line [consisting] of thousands and thousands of swords, knives, medieval weaponry, fantasy collectibles, air guns, blow guns, stun guns, and much, much, more!"

Oh boy.

Looking through the catalog, it's quite the product line indeed ...

Let's start off with the tried and true samurai sword (with an inset picture of what I'm sure is an accurate portrayal of their typical customer)

Of course, if a samurai sword won't do, you could always pick up this beauty and pretend you're Ivy from the "Soul Calibur" series

A throwing hatchet could always come in handy (but no shipping to NY!)

Better yet, why not shop around for the knife enthusiast in your life? There's a wide selection to choose from ...

For the guy who likes motorcycles (The zinc aluminum handle is fashioned into a realistic cycle and goes one step further by offering a working LED light that is activated by the button located on the seat)

For the proud American who will "never forget" ...

For Nazis

For the special lady (or transvestite) in your life who likes to conceal sharp objects in her/his lipstick case

For a redneck who needs a toothpick, apparently ...

For Kano (I guess a lotta video-game enthusiasts shop with these people)

For fans of half-naked women

But enough of knives! Let's get into the heavy artillery ...

A crossbow (with corresponding catapult coming soon, I reckon)

A blowgun, "ideal for indoor shooting" ... wait, what?

A hand-grenade paperweight ... Heh, with what I've seen so far, I'm surprised they don't sell the real thing.

Oh shit


Are lock picks like this even legal?

Hooray! More Nazi paraphenalia ... with the following disclaimer (in the catalog but not on the website): This firm holds no sympathetic regard toward Nazis, fascists, or other neo-political parties, past or present. This product is designed for historical purposes only.

Insert coin, unzip, shake well, guaranteed action, internal use only

Classy belt buckles

Why go with boring old "spray 'em in the face" mace ...

When you can go all medeival on their ass with the original?

"Historic spiked club" ... for the barbarian in you!

Be so hardcore, even your baseball cap is a deadly weapon!

Hey, you got your taser in my brass knuckles! No, you got your brass knuckles in my taser! Wait a minute ...

Man, I am really scared that these guys have my name and home address now ...

I have bought a few things from this place over the years. Beyond the medieval/fantasy stuff they have pretty good prices on rugged "outdoorsman" knives, machetes, and other things that are actually useful.

In college I bought some ninja throwing stars for the obvious reasons. We pretty much destroyed a fallen tree with them. Two are still lost in the woods of Potsdam, NY, just waiting for some unfortunate person to step or trip and fall on top of them.

I also bought 2 scimitars from Bud K because a) I went as Drizzt to a medieval-themed Halloween party in college (we had cases of Middle Ages beer ( and mead!) and b) they are freakin awesome.

Some of those crazy knives are both hilarious and terrifying at the same time. I never understood the idea of buying a samurai sword. If you're not gonna use it, what do you do with it? Isnt that like buying an uzi, then only using it for decoration?

I knew dorks back in Florida who were in the SCA (, and bought stuff from here all the time.

Personally, I have a mace packed away somewhere... NOT the spray kind.

I've seen that assault rifle pellet gun at Walmart stores for $60, which is cheaper and scary.

No comment.

What is so scary about playing Airsoft? It's just paintball with smaller paintballs. They use 6mm pellets vs .68" (17 mm) paintballs and they strive for the mil-sim look.

Reminds me of some mail order place from years back called THE EDGE, where you could get anything from BB guns to obscene t-shirts to roses dipped in 14 carat gold.

With that they ship to Canada? :P

I've seen 14 movies so far this year: Because I Said So - (2*); Borat - (5*); Children Of Men - (4*); Die Hard 4 - (5*); Evan Almighty - (3.5*); Fantastic Four 2 - (4.5*); Hairspray - (5*); Harry Potter 5 - (4*); Knocked Up - (4*); The Last Mimsy - (4*); Mr. Brooks - (4*); Shrek The Third - (3*); Spiderman 3 - (3.5*); Transformers - (2*)

Did you happen to join an Angelina Jolie fansite?

Yeah, it should, but we don't live in Shouldland! Ah, Shouldland, where clean-cut kids cruise Shouldland Boulevard, and the Shouldland High football team gets their optimistic asses kicked by their crosstown rival, Reality Check Tech.

ZOMG I can't believe I'm not getting this catalog and like 15 just like it. I must remedy this!

Oh and btw, out in our area "indoor shooting" is what happens in the winter when the traps aren't working. Someone at the hardware store told me about their first fixer upper, where they actually put removable wooden paneling on the walls so you could get into the walls at a moment's notice. She did warn me, that you should never use a .22 though because you can lose your main brown water pipe that way.

Bah. Boxing still has marketable guys, just no one in the heavyweight ranks. It reminds me of the mid 80's, lots of amazing things going on in the 120-160 area, and a lot of too-green guys and retreads cluttering up the heavyweight ranks.
