x2 on the Khukuri, but I thought the Khukuri was considered more of a knife than a sword.

Only if there's not someone in the room with an actual sword; same goes for the pen.

Clearly it is the Ultima Sword.

Why yes, yes I am a Final Fantasy VII fan. Why do you ask?

In all seriousness, though, I would have to say that the Roman gladius and the later spatha that largely replaced it are the world's most devastatingest swords. They helped found an empire that hugely influenced the (Western) world we live in. Although, I do also have a fondness for the Egyptian khopesh. It's pretty spiffy.

There was an episode of Mythbusters where they tried to have different swords cut through other swords.

Bah, don't you just hate it when people don't bother reading the original post in these kinds of threads in excitement of their own post?

Until they realize the person who they wanted to whack was actually a white haired caucasian in a grey suit named vincent with a 9mm USP compact concealed.

I'm pretty sure that the most devastating sword is the one that you know you hold and say "Thundercats HOOOOOOOO!!!!" and it gets longer or something.

But then again what do I know?
