A 22lr is the first rifle anyone should get. But what's the first SWORD anyone should get?
>>
>>28598004
A gun.
>>
>>28598004
None, you faggot.

Machete or kukri, because they're actually useful.
>>

>>28598004
Katana.

Largest practicing community of martial artists followed by German Longsword.

Because I'll bet on the guy who competes with his local kendo team before I bet on the guy who spends ten minutes outlining why some obscure european weapon is superior to the katana when he's never tried to strike anyone who was striking back.

All "Masterwork Bastard Sword" memeing aside, Katana is a pretty decent all-rounder sword with some extra handyness on horseback and a bit of a weakness in dueling due to lack of a serious handguard.
>>
>>28598579
I hope you're trolling.

Calvary saber.

>>28598590
And a weakness against serious armor, also.
>>
>>28598004
Thin blade machete or thick blade Kukuri. They're incredibly useful for removing vegetation thin and thick respectively. Low key bladed tool for truck carry if that's an issue. No pommel, so you have to be good at follow through, no handguard for that matter. Thick bladed Kukuris are like hatchets with an extended edge.

A spear.

A machete.
Not a faggy coldsteel one, but a real colombian one from a hardware store.
It's a versatile tool and weapon you can use to do anything from chopping wood to cutting grass to beheading (infidels) fish and other animals
definitely worth getting before other gay swords because you'll actually get some use out of it.

Either an oak bokken, a synthetic or wooden longsword or single-handed arming sword, depending on if they're interested in western or eastern.

then go to a local club, and start to learn.

And to be absolutely frank - the sword is obsolete as a weapon. but learning to use them is vastly more fun than any range I've ever shot at.

After you've tried them at a club, and you have some sort of understanding of how they're used (so you're not flailing around like an obese neckbeard ), then, and only then start thinking about buying anything in metal.

and if you are buying to use for defence etc, a) you're an idiot, buy a gun, and b), get a mace - far more effective without spending months training to know how to use 'em.

Why get a sword? Most anyone would get themselves a machete because it's shorter, lighter, and has more uses than a sword.

Getting a sword in today's age is like getting a mace to hammer nails with.

Fun fact, last week I had a 12-15k € (estimated) 16th century sword in a my gloved hands.
You are now aware that you can actually collect historic weapons, or even better, trade with them.
They are beautiful items, with lots of history and a high montetary value.
Also, cuttin shit in your backyard is just as fun (if not more) as plinking.

for BoTN/HMB stuff they are the best in the business.

their sharps are well handling brick shithouses (like a non shit zombietool. inb4 zombietoolfag REEEEEEs about how they aren't overbuilt overpriced junk), but vary aesthetically depending on what you ask for. I knew Illya back when he lived in south florida and the work he pumps out is goddamn beautiful and 100% historically accurate.

I'd really like to get a bare blade from them, then drop the shekels to let this guy make fittings for it, then when crusader monk comes re opens their doors get a grip and scabbard for it.

reading comprehension isn't your strong suit is it.

>hurr so double the weight
my sword clocks in shy of 3lbs and has a 1.5" balance point, so no contrarian anon.

>hi i don't into sentence structure
they make blunts for reenactment combat and sharps for test cutting. completely different blades on each. The only downside is that they, like many american makers, don't have a guy who does proper cord wrapped leather grips. bare wood is fine on some swords, disappointing on most. But if crusader monk stops playing soldier and starts doing grip jobs, it's easily remedied.

Na he is right, you get a good 10-12 inches more reach for the same weight on a European sword (early 16th century), the balance point is closer to the hilt and the blade is much slimmer in profile. Doesn't mean a Katana is a bad sword, just that you should use it a little different.

Jesus is clearly pro sword. If you are a Christian you are practically obliged to buy a sword, it is your religious duty.
Let the sword-grabbers know this, it says so in the New Testament!

You also should not be a cheap fuck and bu some CS or Hanwei shit, he clearly states that you should spend top dollar for a top sword. Check http://www.templ.net/english/ for starters.
>>
>>28605824
Limmi letcha in on a secretz you new guys dunno yet. Katana lengths were based generally on the height of the person wielding it. Your average jap was much shorter than those in the west, it created a trend of shorter swords.

I'll agree with you saying the balance point is different and needs to be used different as a result tho, instead of LEL LEL BALANCE POINT IS FUGGED or KATANA THICK ONLY GOOD FOR THRUSTING, when that's such a fucking absurd thing to say it's hilarious.
