Ok, several years ago a friend and I were getting drunk and watching Highlander.  We decided that we needed some badass Highlander swords.  We jumped on the information superhighway (aka the internet) and bought some Highlander swords.  Now, several years later, I have decided that I don't need a Highlander sword.  I don't stab a lot of people.  And, truth be known, I haven't chopped off a single head.  I know, I'm such a fag for having a Highlander sword and not chopping people' s heads off.  But at this point it's just taking up space in my closet.

I've thought about just putting it in the trash but it won't fit in a trash bag.  I'd basically have to stick it in the trashcan.  I'm weary about that because any trash person could grab it and use it in a crime.  I could sell it on Ebay but I think it would cost more to ship it than what I could sell it for.  I've thought about just stabbing it in the grass in my front yard and hanging a "Free" sign on it.  There's a grade school down the street and I'm sure that there are a ton of grade schoolers that would love to have it.  That would be nice and it would ingratiate some younger people into the martial arts.

But I'm undecided.  What should I do with it?

Wary.  You're wary of that.



We're weary of the poor command of English here at ARFCOM.

Sell it on EE or donate to to a charity fundraiser like Friends of the NRA.  You get a write-off.

I had a similar samurai sword.  I never did any samuraiing, so I traded it for a shitty laptop.  The guy I traded it to never did any samuraiing either.  He traded it for a golf bat.  After that I lost track of it.

Send it to me.

I've got one of those I've had for about 15-20 years.

I really want to get rid of it as I've "grown up", but with liability being what it is today, I can see selling it to some dumbass that ends up with a NSFW vid of them crippling themselves.

Shipping shouldn't be too bad on that. I'd say sell it, and buyer pays shipping fees.

Take it to work and show that scene from Game of Thrones to your workmates and say, "let this be an education to those who would disobey me."

That scene being the one where they chop off heads for being disobedient.

Take a walk through town with it and run up to people, fast, very fast.....to ask if they are interested in having it for free.  Of course it must be out of its case, you know, so they can see it.....as you run up to them.  Also, you could scream "YOU" as you run to them, as to get their attention.

I've never seen any one person with so many bottles of water,
Let alone so many bottles of water to waste.
Doesn't otherwise appear to look very ambitious.
Who pays for all those bottled waters?

Do a torture test on it.

Go all BANZAI on that small tree in your back yard.

I bet the tree wins.

Highlander would have been a better show if he had used a claymore.

I know this guy in Canada who collects them.  It should be able to fit in a long box that you can tape up and ship out.

I have Excaliber in a closet in the guest trailer.   A gift from a former girlfriend sometime in the '90's.

One day I'm going to stick it in a giant bolder on the lawn and point a hidden camera at it to watch shenanigans.

I'm in my 30s and have about 20 swords left from when I was young



Most are in a closet but the "best" (the one over $30) is on a stand on my mantle...

Put it in the kitchen, so you can make submarine sandwiches with it.

Just take it to the pawn shop and get your $20.

Sell it but make it clear it's a decoration:

Mom: Billy, I'm going to the store for dinner tonight, sweetie. Is there anything else you need?
Billy: Uhhh, can you grab another case of mineral water? And, um.......
Mom: Yes, dear?
Billy: Uhhhh.... I'm going to need you to hold the camera for me again.
Mom: Again, Billy? This will be the 5th time this week. Are you sure?
Billy: Ummm.... Yeah. Mom, this is important stuff.
Mom: If you say so, honey. I'll be back in a bit.
Billy: Don't forget uhhh.... pizza rolls! Yeah, pizza rolls!
Mom: Of course, baby. Anything that makes you happy.

You should go out in your front yard and start waving it around wildly.

When the officer arrives, just tell him that you're slashing flies.

Give it to some kid as an award for something.  Makes it even more special.  Tell them how you can see the warrior in them.  That in the future they must use it to fight for truth, justice, and the American Way.

OP should take it to the grade school while waving it about, it will go over well.
Link Posted: 4/29/2015 10:53:14 PM EDT
We had a sword laying around which was good for nothing and which nobody wanted.  I made a note from "Merlin" which referenced a secret quest, burned the edges, made the paper look aged, and then I planted the sword through the note on the lawn of someone who went to the same school.  They had NO clue I did it and I thought it was just about the funniest thing ever.
