>Weapons that get you rock hard every time like a 9 year old with a sears catalog

A Templar long sword. These things was insanely heavy and cleaved through man and metal like the fierce and judging eyes of God himself. Do these Warrior commit themselves to a single swing of divine right only to be hacked by the heathens to follow?

No.

They wear armored greaves that allow them to grip the sword part-way down and use it to leverage against swifter foes. Parry and shield. Cut deep and fast in close quarters where a full swing is not possible. Use the hilt weight to smash skulls bone into wet sacks of wasted flesh.

I cannot even contain how much I am in lustful admiration of this weapon and fighting style.

The largest claymore on record is a sword measuring 7 feet 6 inches (2.24 m) and weighing 23 pounds (10 kg). The claymore was wielded by a 15th-century Scottish giant of unknown name and origin, though the individual is believed to have been a member of the Maxwell Clan.[citation needed]

Yeah, except for where that's fucking stupid.

You don't have to "saw a man in half" to drop him. It takes ~1 inch of penetration to send a person into shock.

A thrusting weapon needs a single decent lunge to kill or disable an opponent. You put the point in, and then you circle him while he goes into shock and bleeds out. He probably won't even swing back, but if he does...well, he's in shock. How well do you think he can fight?

Did you ever watch a series called "War" by Gwynne Dyer? Because you've come very close to paraphrasing him.

Reminded me of this line:

"Stalingrad is no longer a town. By day it is an enormous cloud of burning, blinding smoke; it is a vast furnace lit by the reflection of the flames. And when night arrives, one of those scorching, howling, bleeding nights, the dogs plunge into the Volga and swim desperately to gain the other bank. The nights of Stalingrad are a terror for them. Animals flee this hell; the hardest stones can not bear it for long; only men endure."

Made for the King Goujian of the Yue Kingdom in the 500's B.C. for his personal sword during the Chinese Warring States.

Millenia later, the tomb of King Goujian was found by Chinese archaeologists fucking around Jinan, capital of the Chu kingdom (which absorbed Yue). They opened a sarcophagus and found a skeleton with, among other grave goods, an ornate sheathe.

Due to certain fortunate conditions (i.e. lack of oxygen, lack of moisture, tight-ass scabbard), when they pulled the blade out it seemed good as new.

Most likely it wasn't. Didn't show battle damage and Warring States era Chinese Kings rarely went into battle (save the King of Qin/First Emperor, who was a vicious militarist warrior king) and if they did, they used their dagger-axes and spears first.

King Goujian, however, was a particularly vicious bastard himself. He was known for his brutal war against the Kingdom of Wu, in which part of his pyschops tactics is to force criminals and captured enemy soldiers to kill themselves in front of the Wu army.

Wrong.
Wavy blades are made to show off the swordsmiths skill by making something that's exceedingly hard to get right without critically weakening the blade. This unnecessary complication only adds to the chance your blade will be flawed and fail in battle.
If a wavy sword has the same cross sectional area as a normal sword it will inevitable be heavier per unit length with no gain in strength.
The bends themselves act as stress concentrators, again increasing the chance of the blade failing in battle.
Wavy swords are objectively worse and only poseur faggots would carry them on the battlefield.

Blades are not 10,00 years of honorable christian pope folded steel. We know that. That video is incredible out of contest of where these things were used. People sweat. This is fact wearing armor or getting ready for a competition or battle. You get nervous and anxious and heated. Your hands are NEVER dry in these situations. He was holding a sharp blade in a controlled circumstance and landing blowing on a fake enemy. In life when these were used those conditions would not exist. You would have moist hands one way or another and the blade sliding up or down from your grind that is only skin friction tight WOULD slice your fingers and palm deep.

Not form a manual, and maybe not terribly clear either, this one's from a sketchbook which seems to be about showing how fights actually ended up looking. (While the previous two illustrations would be more about clearly showing the technique.)

And as strange as all of this may seem, is it really that odd that we today would have a poor intuitive understanding of these things? It's centuries since these swords were used for their original purpose, a few things can have slipped from collective memory over the years.

that's not very cheap in medieval time and NOT easy to make. You have to weld several pieces onto haft, which wasn't exactly easy with medieval technology. Its probably easier to forge a sword at that point.

That's already been posted once and there is a difference. In the illustrations, they have encircled the entire blade with their hands. In the video, he's deliberately and carefully only putting the fingers of each hand on one side. I would guess this is because he's not a complete idiot and doesn't want to slice open his hand. In a duel or melee, there wouldn't be time to adjust you hold.

I know it's cliche as fuck, but Imma have to go with the Mosin.

Just a sturdy, reliable, and powerful rifle. It has no special lasers, innovative bullet cyclers, or anything of the sort.

It just makes the man fall down from far away.

It was the weapon that scored a man over 300 kills in the defence of his country.

It is the gun issued to young men thrown onto the front lines whom have nothing to defend themselves but this and their wits.

There's often a lot of noise made about the quasi-mythical properties of the longbow that supposedly carried the english to victory at Agincourt and Crecy, but there's a much simpler lesson to be drawn from it:
When your enemy is on a battleground of his choosing and has taken up a strong defensive position (and indeed his whole doctrine revolves around this), you don't humour him by charging straight at him. It's as easy as that.

But seriously, this guy gets it. The battle of Agincourt should not be used as evidence for the superiority of the long bow against an armoured charge. It was, as it almost always is, all about the tactics used and the orders given.

While I agree that The Zombie Survival Guide was painfully boring and was essentially just your standard survival guide with the word "zombie" thrown in occasionally, World War Z was a genuinely good read.

The Survival Guide only got so popular because of its coffee table appeal.

There is no such thing as a Templar longsword.
From your description you seem to be talking about some kind of zweihander. Greaves are leg armour.

Also Ironclad is about as historically accurate as Legolas decapitating Adolf Hitler with a laser katana.
The above statement is not hyperbole, it really is that bad.
