Nah it's Thomek.

And btw my dad's childhood friend is the American mastersmith. I'm not even kidding, he makes shit like katanas and stuff to decorate the whitehouse, and of all the blades he makes, the katanas are without question the easiest to slice n dice things with. So I'm not just pulling these ideas out of my ass, although I'm not saying I'm absolutely right either, never swung a legit ancient katana against a guy in plate.  :rolleyes:

Don't underestimate the plate, this aint some Lars Anderson piece of tinfoil stuck to a bulletin-board definition of 'plate'.

If all it took to completely demolish the Plate arms-race in medieval Europe was for a single smith somewhere to invent the curved sword... I wonder why nobody in Europe used a blade with a curve (it's not like Europeans encountered cultures who used curved swords or anything  :rolleyes: )

I'm not entirely sure, but I believe the tests done in that article involved legit ancient weapons and armor. And I think they did a few more tests with katanas made by modern-day mastersmiths in the same fashion the ancient Japanese made them.

Katanas do look fancy, but they are by no means a godtier sword that can cut plate, or a sword. They are more of a status thing than anything, doubt anyone in battle would pick a katana over a naginata for example, atleast not those who wants to be able to fight.

The tests werent done against plate anyways, and no tests with any other sword than katana as far as i read.

Sorry.. I thought someone reposted the 1st vid in this thread. It was late, I was tired and it was bedtime. Didn't realize you made a fresh post in this thread.

Done in the presence of experts both pro and anti katana in controlled conditions not some tosser filming himself.

End of Katana super weapon discussion.
