Years ago, a friend of mine was teaching a newb about the SCA
and the different weapons forms between rapier and armored
combat.  He, laughingly, said:

"In rapier, our weapons rust and our clothing mildews. In
fighting it's the other way 'round"."

I remember when Hal was giving us great lessons on the
two forms on this list, ages ago.
