Being part Native American, the longbow just comes natural to me. I have several of the old carbon steel tips that render most body armor useless. Once you learn the craft, long range shots come natural.
I also have a few broad swords, Spartan sword, true Japanese katana(not the cheap stainless crap, but a WW2 bring-back), kukri, Mexican machete(heavy blade, and sharp as a razor), tomahawk, and knives galore. I also learned from a blacksmith the art of blade making. Not a hard job, but time consuming.
Other weapons include the spiked club, mace(not the spray kind), broad axe, and war club.
Never challenge a man who has nothing left to lose.
