Safe and Sharp

Safe and Sharp 800x730

The ‘sharp’ in this Muvari-coined phrase refers to a state or readiness–the term originating in reference to the household weapons of a clan, which are whetted and ready for use in defense of the family.

Eventually, the phrase “safe and sharp” evolved to mean a general state of preparation and alertness. It is still used to mean to refer to battle readiness, but also other such mundane things as having a meal prepared or the tools ready and waiting to go out and harvest a mushroom crop.
