Common Practices & Experiences

Everyone is different! You'll see this repeated throughout our website and glossary. Common knife play practices include, but certainly aren't limited to:
  • Learning about safe handling of the weapon being played with 
  • Having a first aid kit on hand 
  • Pre-established agreement about limits and whether the play is expected to break the skin or not. 
  • Pre-established safe words 

Gerry loves the feeling of the blunt side of a cold steel blade on their skin.

Damien and Hal are trained in stage combat, and enjoy incorporating swordplay into their kink dynamic.
