Swordsmith Montoya, make sure that man doesn’t have six fingers!
I distinctly told you to make a sword that would fit a six fingered hand.
Louis knew he need something much longer to compensate for his shortcomings.
While he is outwardly fawning, inside the sword-smith is seething that Don Peron felt the need to take his gloves of that he can get his body oils all over the sword as he fondles it with his naked hands.
So all I have to do is stab a person with this, and they will be dead? That’s really much simpler to use than those new fangeled guns
“My name is Inigo Montoya; you killed my father. Prepare to die!”
“May I have your sword sir; it gives me great pleasure.” (À la John Lennon in “How I Won the War”)
Is there any way around the 10 day waiting period? The duel is at dawn tomorrow…
Of all of his Majesty’s fruits/ the most magnificent brutes/ were the gay musketeers:/ those fastidious dears/ chose their weapons to go with their boots.
Face it, when you dress like that, you need to carry a weapon around. Especially in the bad areas of town.
“Good fences make good neighbors”, but…..Nuthin saves more labor than a saber through your neighbor in the mo-or-or-nin’..
“If this was handcrafted in your shop, why does it have ‘Made in China’ stamped on the hilt?”
which end did you say was the business end…?
He dropped his lacy hanky to see if the salesman was obsequious enough to pick it up. He was.
So does your hat! Now, what’s the problem, Sire?
It’s a quality sword and the price is right, but unfortunately, good sir, it doesn’t match my boots.
Sir, I’ve see you use a sword. Maybe you should wear red.
“What colour would you like, Sir?”
The Swishbuckler Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Oh yes sir, with that sword all the pirates will be very very afraid of you.
I throw my glove on the floor to challenge you to a dual over the price. This is only worth 10% of your asking price. What do you say to that, young man?
“Oh Billy, Billy, Billy…”
“And you say it’s protected by the 2nd Amendment?”

…and you’re sure this will get me out of the sand?
“HMMMMM.. so this is the sword you made for Don Pedro.” “He threaten to shove it up my.” “Good Lord what is the length of this thing?”
That monsieur, is a gay blade. Unlike Prince Valiant’s heavy “Singing Sword” this is the “Snickering Sword!”It will drive your opponents mad! They will swing wildly trying to stop the snickering.
Monsieur: And any drawbacks?
Well, you will have to keep it fed with other’s blood, or else it will snicker at you!
“It seems that I have dropped my glove. Could you face the other way while you pick it up for me, Eduardo?”
“NO! Fool me once…”
“Does this skirt make my a-s look big”?
“This one is perfect for chopping garlic. But wait, there’s more. Order the entire set in the next thirty minutes, and we’ll include the staghorn hilts.” “No!?!?” “Yes, you heard that right – the staghorn hilts!”
“There is nothing wrong with being poor, just dressing poorly”. – full credit to Zoro The Gay Blade.
I’ll take the paring knife on the right.

Are those the famous Puissant Boots? I thought they were a fairy tale!
My name is Inigo Montoya . . .
His horse is really hoping he takes a loooooong time picking out his new sword.
I just noticed – Ye Olde Weapon Shoppe is branching out – they’re selling muskets now as well.
“Well, I must be going.”“Oh, sir, would you?”
take it anyway sir., you can’t fight your way out of a paper poke, but you’ll look dashing anyway.
“Well no wonder he wouldn’t duel with you! When you throw down a gauntlet do it like you mean it! Just dropping it on the floor really doesn’t count. And be sure to use a GAUNTLET, not your mom’s Sunday-go-to-church gloves.”
You say if I buy two muskets, I can get this sword for free?
