One of my sidelines is abstracting (basically) ophthalmolgy books. The latest is this. It turns out that
quote:
Despite the tremendous importance of technologically advanced blade engineeringo the the performance of precise microsurgery, there is a dearth of published information regarding the design of surgical blades. A search of PubMed reveals no articles that explore the basics of surgical blade design. Therefore, we used the follow resources to identify the terms relevant to the understanding surgical blade design. The references are not cited in the text because the terms discussed can be categorised as general knowledge rather than original concepts or ideas
They go on to list various websites, mainly belonging to surgical blade production companies, but including this Which I highly recommend, although I have yet to find anything relevant to surgical blade design. Nice pic of Aragon, eh?

Although the article on blind martial artists may be of some ophthalmological interest, I guess.

Who can resist the authors Reflections on Cold Steel and Machined Weapons ?:

There is no doubt that human beings have always developed and tented to achieve more and more. Partly it is because of the need; partly it is the concurrence. Anyway, it is a natural tendency!
which includes the immortal question:
quote:
Dilemma - which weapons are better: blades or guns?

Not as straightforward a question as you might imagine
