Posted:Well, its not realy a different Toy, one of the most common actually, but it did leave me with a nice scar.

About a month ago i made a set of Double staffs and were practising with em for a long time without lighting them. then when i was asked by my mate to spin some fire at his party i spun my old staff (wasnt good enough for puplic doubles) which is alot lighter than the ones i made.

Now for the blood bit, when i started to crank up the speed a bit to finish off, becaue of the lesser weight i wasnt used to it, so i ended up bringing the end too close to my face and i sliced my nose open in front of a few dozen people.... redface

funny thing was i didnt notice i was cut so i kept going till i started breathing in blood though my nose... ooooops

Well what I meant was any type of 'toy', everything from sock to tails, to staffs to stilts

Posted:waay back before i got my real fire poi off hop, i tried making a pair. or two. out of hemp rope. I figured 'hey, its natural fibre, shouldn't really burn'. It does. they lasted maybe 3 burns before they burnt through just before the massive heaving line (a bit like a noose) knot i'd tied as the head. nobody got hurt, and i didn't burn anything down, but i stopped making them after the second (i thoought the first may have been a fluke...)
