What is you're favorite type of bladed weapon and why?
This topic is more tilted toward Historic bladed weapon than Anime ones.
This is mainly like if YOU yourself were to use a bladed weapon for real combat.

Also you might add what kind of training you've had in the weapon or what kind of training you'd seek for the weapon.

If you like, post your second favorite too.

Please don't provide simple answers to the why part. For instance "It's cool" or "It looks badass" aren't the greatest answers for why you like a weapon. Liking a weapon because your favorite anime or movie character likes it isn't a very good reason either. Be in depth.

This is a discussion topic, so to get discussions going, when each person posts their favorite bladed weapon, they should first comment on another's weapon.


Remember; Disagreeing with someone is not bad. It just means two people have a difference of opinion. So there should be no flaming going on here. Be respectful. Friendly debate is alright and can be lots of fun, but a flaming argument is stupid and often destroys a thread.


I'll start off.

My favorite weapon is a katana. Not because it's popular, but rather because I have been trained to use it through nearly 7 years of Iaijutsu practice. Therefore, such a thing would more devastating in my hands than another sword in which I haven't had formal training in as a sword is just an object which holds far more effective in the hands of a person specifically trained to use it. Other than that, a Katana is used primarily to cut. It is one of the most effective cutting weapons in the pre-modern world. Therefore, it would feature a swift kill to an unarmoured enemy rather than a arming or bastard sword which blade was dulled to prevent breaking and was used to rather bash an armour clad someone to death and then pierce through them when their down.

My second favorite weapon would be a tossup between a rapier and a tactical combat knife.
I'd pick the combat knife since the rapier would prose less useful. My grandfather, A veteran infantryman of the US Army who fought in both WW2 and the Korean War taught me how to use a knife. How to throw it and how to fight with it. I have a good Ka-bar or two around my place. I would use this since it is small I could conceal it easily.

Well this isn't exactly what I was going for... :lol:

I meant a weapon someone would use IRL if they had whatever training they'd want.
And something a bit more specific. If a sword, what kind of sword? If an Axe; What kind of axe? Spear? What kind of spear? etc. etc.
Furthermore, why would you pick this particular weapon? Be in-depth and specific.

For instance, IRL Ninja had no "weapons" perse. No straight swords, and Kunai were trowels, they didn't have blades or a pointed edge. Shuriken were flat pieces of scrap metal often without a sharpened blade or a thin straight dart.

IRL swords don't have powers.

HOWEVER; IF you could pick ANY bladed weapon (Historic or Anime) to use in RL situations ie; what would it be and what training would you use to compliment it?
