so the Tabar-Shishpar hangs in a place of (dis)honor at home

You competed honorably and you accepted the judges' decision honorably. It hangs with honor as a testament to your efforts and actions. Display it proudly. You deserve to be proud of what you did.

Thank you.


I am happy with my work, I just shouldn't have been so certain of myself thinking they'd test it with the robo-arm... it just seemed inconceivable, having watched the show so much, that they'd grab the sharp ax side and swing the mace with a purpose. Thought for sure they'd put it in a rig for that. I didn't want the handle to be compromised, and the weight, once the momentum built up, would devastate whatever it hit without falling apart. 


Silly me and my proud assumptions.

Given what I HAVE seen them test with the robo arm it seems like a good decision. Then again, when they tested the Afghan T-backed blade, which was designed to split and pierce mail-type armor, they did not test that capability:wacko:
