Nah, I read the original post, so it doesn't count.

Wow, didn't realize there were so many parts of a katana:

Just gotta get it out of that rock.

I also agree, the gladius had the most impact in terms of helping decide who ruled what and where. I don't think it's that impressive in and of itself, but it was put to good use. They were using it far before 100AD too.

Funny how they were using a Roman gladius in Troy. Amazing the Trojans could see into the future like that.

Yep, I'm right. Lock the thread, that one is the clear and obvious winner. The one blade to rule them all. Thanks for playing.

Devastating or not, generally speaking, when you see a cranky looking chinese guy carrying a couple of these on both hands, you don't get too close to him

Check out this interesting video, a katana vs. a rain of bullets coming from a really heavy duty machine gun (140mm). I can´t understand a word except the american guy and the "5m" distance between the weapons, but the images speak for themselves anyway.

Before you watch the video, try to guess how many bullets do you think would be needed from such a weapon to break the katana. A hint: it´s really > 1...

my sog knife can do that little trick too. Bigger caliber, lower velocity, easier cut.

No kidding? I obviously heard something totally different... interesting all the same!

Mrvile - at least post someone with the respectable FX version from Master Replicas!





Anyways, although I really like the look and artful use of the katana I think the Roman sword would be the most devastating just for its size and seemingly ease of use. Seems like it would really allow a close combat and enable the user to also implement a variety of options with the second arm hand free or not.

The katana is definitely a beautiful sword, but I wouldn't call it devastating. Now as for those blades meant to cause more damage when you pull it down than when you stick it in.. that's devastation
