ASCII art weapons

Here’s a bunch of weapons made with one-line ascii art. They are handy to put into IMs and text messages.

    did you get the idea for this post from Gary, the person who left the 10,000th comment on your blog? Over at his blog he made a shark sword/sledgehammer/axe that looks like this:

    i misinterpreted his “shark” and made my own that looks like this:

    The “|” is the hammer “=” is the blade “E” is the handle “7” is the nub on the end of the handle.

    But here’s Gary’s interpretation of his “shark”: Umm… You hold it from the left side… “7” Equals tip of blade “EEEEEEE” equals blade, and “============” indicates handle.

    But good job regardless! Plus, Mine is harder and it goes in easier.

    I did not get this idea from Gary. I have a list of ASCII one-line art from awhile ago. I’m just posting the art in groups from time to time. You told me about Gary’s art and I was going to add it to the list, but I forgot.

    To make the artwork on my page clear, I make the handle appear on the left, the blade on the right.

    a sledge hammer:

    A sledge hammer with a nice handle

    A hammer with spikes and a nice handle

    A sledgehammer with a cinder block at the end ala [url=]G.I.Joe’s Road Pig[/url].

    Hmm, that cinder block looks wimpy. How about this one:
