Posted:Okay, after doing martial arts for 8-9 years, I've learned how to use 6 different weapons. What if you sanded down the end of a tonfa and wrapped some kevlar around it?? That would look pretty cool. I should maybe try it! biggrin

Time does not exist. In theory, everything with a beginning has an end. Therefore, only things with an end can have a beginning. As time has no end, it has no beginning, therefore does not exist. GO PHILOSOPHY!!!

Shouldn't be a problem, I've modded a pair of wooden tonfa's for fire, you will require metal shrouding or alluminium tape preferable both to protect the woodwork, works surprisingly well.

Minor detail, long leather arm shroud / gauntlets took care of that particular shortcommming, you could probably use kevlar though, although it would probably act as a fairly efficient wick with predictable results

Posted:It's doable for sure, basically you should do it in a similar way that hardwood fire staves are made. First to fireproof the end that will be burning use copper foil flahsing (easy to get at hardware stores.) then wrap them in aluminium flahsing or tape. (also easy to get at hardware stores.) Then attach your kevlar. You probably want them to be a bit longer than normal tonfas so that you don't risk burning you're arms. Tonfas really arn't my thing but, let me know how it turns out.

Posted:I wonder if going UV for a toy like that wouldn't look cooler. Many of the tonfa work that I've seen is very close to the body. Many firey stuff tends to look good if it's outward from the body.

It's possible certainly to go firey. smile


Well, shall we go?
