    Re: sword blessing?

    I suppose any blessing for a tool or object would suffice. Don't really know what you would curse them for unless you are giving them away, (or one of them?) There may be some sword specific blessings in shinto traditions, and other traditions where sword practice was part of everyday life. I am not familiar with those however.

    Cursing a sword does add spiritual strength to the weapon but at a cost

    Learning to use it correctly adds much more, and without the cost. Don't rely on magic to save your butt in a fight
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    No cost is too high to high to make a sword supernaturally durable. I would like to do it, even if I have to spil my own blood for that.
    Also, I would like to use a curse as a safety feature. I would like to design it to make the thief slit his own throat, wipe his blood, resheat it and put it back on it's stand.
    In a fight, I would always rely on my Bujinkan training, rather than on magic.

    I have almost no knowledge about magic, so maybe I expect too much.

    First off, why do you need to bless a sword that doesn't seem to be used for ritual purposes, and why do you need two?

    Or maybe you should get off your butt and learn something. Asking about curses shows your foolishness. Good luck.

    Whoa, LM. Warriors ritually blessed their swords before battles, and nevermind that aside, why doesn't he need a sword? And why not two? I quite enjoy fighting florentine (the italian method of fighting with two swords at once). It's good exercise, and a good skill to have.

    I DO disagree about thieves stabbing themselves in the night, but I don't disagree with the actual act of owning a few swords.

    Or maybe you should get off your butt and learn something. Asking about curses shows your foolishness. Good luck.
    When someone admits they don't know something, you don't attack them. You teach them. Your own harshness shows your foolishness.
