THE PATH THROUGH THE BLADES OF ITALIAN BLADE.
Your capacity development will go hand in hand with the difficulties increasing of the events. It is a real path that will change you completely. The change is often scary, but at the end of our events you will quell your fears and rewrite your own limits.
The following are the 6 steps of our haul:
- KNIFE: 6-hours lasting
- DAGGER: 12-hours lasting
- MACHETE: 24-hours lasting
- KUKRI: 36-hours lasting
- KATANA: 48-hours lasting
- CLAYMORE: unknown lasting (from a 48-hours minimum to a 72-hours maximum)
According to our protocols, there are two types of ENDURANCE: MENTAL and PHYSICAL.
Along the way you will cope with two stages: in the first one you will develop the mental endurance capability, whereas in the second and last part of the way you will face the challenges to succeed in physical endurance.
-THE MENTAL ENDURANCE TRIDENT –
Complete KNIFE, DAGGER and MACHETE events.
MENTAL ENDURANCE TRIDENT does not only mean to you meeting an empirical goal. Thanks to this you will acquire the ability to maintain the clarity of mind, also in tense and unexpected situations. You will be able to solve problems without clouding your mind with exhaustion and physical stress. Being able to take the right decision at the right moment, despite your body could try to compromise your decision-making, makes the difference between survival and failure.
-THE PHYSICAL ENDURANCE TRIDENT-
Complete KUKRI, KATANA and CLAYMORE events.
The second part of the path provides three BLADE events longer and more stressful, the ones which will put under strain your endurance and body capability to survive.
The elements that characterize this part are: non-stop and repetitive physical work, sleep deprivation and calorical limitation, unfavourable weather and environment conditions leading to physical stress.
PHYSICAL ENDURANCE TRIDENT means being familiar with one’s own physical limits and learn how to master them to make the most of the endurance capability in the long term with limited resilience. This is the difference between knowing up to when it will be necessary to endure or fail.
CAN I COMPETE IN ONLY ONE EVENT?
OF COURSE, YOU CAN!
The pathway of Italian BLADE has been planned to give you the opportunity to live your tranformation
And being able to manage yourself in every situation in ways you cannot even imagine.
A path is composed by steps, all equally important and that will lead you to the goal.
The nice thing of our events is indeed that they are designed to be formative in every single challenge, as well as in its entirety. A one-of-a-kind structure!
In 2019 all six events are available:
KNIFE 06HR 002
DAGGER 12HR 002
MACHETE 24HR 002
KUKRI 36HR 001
KATANA 48HR 001
CLAYMORE 48/72HR 001
WHAT DOES ITALIAN BLADE GIVE YOU BESIDES THE INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE?
Every ENDURER that succeeds in conquering the MENTAL or PHYSICAL ENDURANCE TRIDENT, will receive two things:
- An official CSEN certificate that demonstrate the positive outcome of the faced challenges;
- One of the parties of the stunning medal SPIRIT OF ENDURANCE SPEAR (there in no temporal limit to conquer it).
DO NOT THINK YOU HAVE DONE!
FORGE YOUR (ITALIAN) BLADE.
If you succeed in completing THREE OUT OF THE SIX different available events (e.g. KNIFE + DAGGER + KUKRI, but NOT KNIFE + KNIFE + DAGGER) [IN THE SAME CALENDARE YEAR*], you will receive a voucher. This gives you the possibility to attend a course to learn how to forge your BLADE with a real MASTER CUTLER from AC COSMAI BLADES, at the bushcraft camp in Tivoli (Rome) with the fellows of the TIVOLI TREK – Outdoor Activities Association. You will brand your knife with the SOLE Italian Blade emblem, to give you a personal and unique utensil, to use for the events or for your outdoor activities.
You just have to begin your journey.
We are waiting for you.
“Grab the Blade, Win the Pain”
*Those who had already competed in one or two events in 2018, do not have to compete again in three events in 2019, but it is sufficient to complete the three different events sequence (i.e. you have to complete the missing events).
