There is actually a reason for weapons like that, specifically that such weapons leave wounds that are almost impossible to stitch shut as the flesh won't connect properly or heal right. If they don't exsanguinate, then necrosis almost certainly claims the flesh between the lacerations. Death by gangrination.

Prison shanks often use a double-blade design for exactly this reason.

You use the fucking bow and kill your enemy. If they get closer, polearm. Still closer, sword. That's a rare occasion.
Katanas are really fucking good at cutting.
Once or twice.
And then they dull down.
They dull REALLY quickly.
Also, katana techniques are all pretty much hit-or-miss. You put your whole body behind attacking. It's not like the Chinese swords that can actually be used to, I dunno, disarm the opponent.

Kendo? Fuck kendo.
But, the katana isn't a blocking or parrying weapon. Like I said, it dulls really quickly. With Chinese swords, you can easily disarm opponents, disorient them, stab and slash. The katana is a slashing ONLY weapon.

Also, in order to use the katana properly, like any slashing sword, you've got to put your whole body into each slash. It's meant to cut through things, after all. But if you miss, you're wide open. It's as if you've got a rocket launcher that shoots 20lb rockets. If it hits, your opponent is FUCKED.

In martial arts, there's something called Drunken Boxing. Yeah, you could use a Drunken style in combat, and some schools teach you to specialize in it. Still, you've got to know when it IS and ISN'T a good idea to limp around.

First attack with bow. Then with polearm. Katana is last effort defense. Sometimes, yes, they were used in duels the same way a pistol may have been used.

People do not move that fast. When they do, they can enjoy either being caught on bad ground, or moving too slowly, since the opponent has no reason at all not to simply continue the attack. Fighs are ended by hitting th other guy which requires you to either strike first, or successfully force his weapon out of position, which is best done by countering an attack with your weapon and instantly moving to attack him.

Really not a great concern given that the field is littered with them after the battle, the the damage to your sword means the opposing weapon didn't harm YOU.

Fat, not flat.

>> No.21985342

Just how weak do you think a katana -- or any sword for that matter -- actually is?

As others have said, parrying is NOT edge-on-edge. You use the flat, because (a) it gives you better control over where your enemy's weapon goes, and (b) so you don't dull the blade!

Parrying only fucks up your edge if you're doing it wrong. And in that case, you're a lot less likely to live long enough to care about roughing up your cutting edge, because you're not protecting yourself as effectively.

That doesn't make it an acceptable weapon design. Good weapons are meant to win fights, not cause your opponent medical problems a week after he's killed your dumb ass for using with twice the strike area and therefore half the power. Using a sword like this when you could just as easily use a regular sword is like using a one-armed strike when you could just as easily use a two-armed strike. Shanks are different; you gotta play the psychological game in prison. I'm sure there's a decent way to implement the tactic you're talking about, but just sticking a regular katana blade right next to your already perfectly functional katana blade isn't it.

I'm not the one you're arguing with, but people don't just make constant sound barrier-breakingly swift dodges in the middle of swordfights. A sword can be swung a hell of a lot faster than a human body can be moved out of range of a sword swing. You can dodge backward, sure, but unless you're a vast open plain with no obstacles and you're capable of running backward faster than your opponent can run forward, eventually you're gonna need to close, and relying strictly on opportunistic strikes in close combat is reckless; you need a defensive response in case your opponent counters. Obviously blocking is also important. I don't exactly how many blocks occurred in an average katana duel, it might not have been many, but I'm sure that they didn't just try dashing away like the Flash when counterattacked at close range just to protect their damn swords.

What's really funny about these threads is that even if a lot of these weapons ARE terrible, there's still probably people even today who could do some nasty things with them.
In my experience with martial arts, and just what i've seen in real life, even unconventional weapons can still hurt like a bitch. I mean I've seen a guy beat up another guy with a metal hoop, not even a bladed chakram, I mean fucking metal hoop, the kind you'd push with a stick if you were a child in the 1900's.

You should read Teller's examination of the principles involved. It's actually very clear that the premise of atmospheric ignition literally doesn't work.

White Phosphorous is dangerous as fuck, but doable. You could even have a sortof ranged attack by swinging the sword in your opponent's direction, sending small sticky fireballs flying at him.

I would like to design a sword that looks as sword-like as possible but portable in that it doesn't need external fuel-sources. Like a big hilt perhaps with a hidden bottle that evenly coats the whole blade periodically without blowing up the bottle or compromising strength.

I'd also require a sortof ignition next to the grip of the sword so one could ready it by simply pressing a switch or valve then flick the ignition and bam, sword catches fire. The ranged attack flick thing could be done more times if it's replenished.

How about a sheath of asbestos? Could have one of those long kitchen lighters in the hilt, replaceable cause the hilt opens up. The entire roll of asbestos, soaked in gasoline would light up from the inside and voila, flaming sword and the sheath doesn't melt.

This is more of a prop though, I'd actually want a metal sword. I don't think that's possible without a machined swordblade that's a bit hollow and has tiny holes everywhere where gasoline/flame would come out. that would also snap.
