>>28702458
Broadsword, so I could watch his sword shatter when it hits mine.
>>
>>28702458
Easy, a spear. If I can keep that fucker away from me, I'll be fine.

Cutlass

pole arm or something long
plus about 50 buddies

>>28702468
Japanese spears (naginata) were actually their primary melee weapon. Swords are/were just romanticized as fuck just like they are/were in the West (where the spear was also the primary melee weapon for most warfighters who didn't have a reason not to carry one).
The spear and its variants were the pinnacle of melee weapon tech.
>>
bear mace
>>
>>28702467
Why would he try to hit your blade ?

Anyway, why a melee weapon when he'll probably have a musket or a bow in addition of spears, knives and swords ?
Anyway, probably a polearm with a hook, like a guisarme.
>>
Rapier and parrying daggers

Or a gun

A gun works just fine
>>
>>28702516
>Japanese spears (naginata)
Naginata are glaives, not spears, spears would be either Sô (long ones) or Yari (shorter ones).

If I only had japanese weapons

This is also what I'd choose, or alternatively
Rapier + flintlock pistol combo.

I don't get why you would go with a (mainly) piercing weapon and a pistol against someone who will typically have a polearm, full body bulletproof armor and all but well...
>>
Nugget + bayonet
>>
>>28702938
Samurai armor isn't bulletproof, and rapiers are very sharp at the point, which can cause significant damage and death from very small and quick thrusts. Also, having one hand with a weapon and another hand to do something else with a rapier is quite advantageous than having both hands occupied.
>>
Sasumata
it was designed to deal with samurai.
Alternatively a big ass club or really long spear.
>>
>>28703001
Well, it depends on which type but many were, even some of the lamellar ones.
Besides, if you think you can penetrate a piece of lamellar armor with a rapier, I'd say it's a bit desillusional, sure, you could go for the gaps but well.

And then, having both hands occupied by a weapons that is two to three time longer than a rapier is hardly disadvantageous.

Guess I'm being a bit of and idiot since it was never specified what type of samurai but well, here I go. A rapier's primary advantage is its reach, but the samurai used traditionaly lots of weapons that were way longer than rapiers.

>>28703001
I think you should stick to your video games and leave reality alone.

my melee weapon would be an Israeli armored demolition bulldozer.

>>28703038
True it depends on the armor, but also aiming for armored points with a rapier is going to be a bad idea regardless. As you said, gaps for sure, though I know face shots are generally preferred with rapier combat, as even if you don't kill a person with it, it'll leave a very nasty scar that cannot be hidden well, unless the face is covered up. But even still, I prefer using a weapon that can do multiple quick jabs with relatively less movement.

But now we should also consider the nature of the fight. Is it a 1v1 duel, or battlefield? What sort of equipment are we allowed, or is it what we're wearing at this moment?
>>
>>28703133
>I know face shots are generally preferred with rapier combat
I thought it would have been the torso but I may mix it up with latter 17th c. data.

If we assume it's battlefield situation, then we have to assume the samurai has three to ten other warriors with him, if not he is at least fully armored, with three to five different weapons on him (polearm, knives, swords, shurikens for starters).
Even if it's unarmored 1vs1, restricted to typical samurai weapons, he will probably go with either a naginata or a sô, which are very large weapons, having a weapon that can jab quickly fast is good and all, assuming you are in range to hit anything, which you probably won't be if you fight a naginata or a sô (well, the rapierist will have to do the closing). Rapiers will have trouble taking the blows of a naginata, though I wouldn't count them as a bad choice anyway.

Anyway, pointless scenario, too many variables, I'll go with this >>28703021 or a massive Ô-Kumade rake.
>>
>>28702458
Flame thrower.

Do I get armor? A shield? Without either of these it's basically impossible to defeat an armored man.

Some kind of pole arm, like a broom stick.

A larger samurai, obviously.

>>28703214
Numbers 6, 14, 24, and 27 are fine, too.
>>
>>28702467
A trained samurai would never directly block your hit with his blades edge. He'd probably just dodge your big heavy slow bullshit and skewer you
>>
Shield and anything else, bash tiny nip into the earth with the rest of his pig iron
>>
>>28702458
longsword and round shield, watch him try to cut through it, and raff.
>>
A polehammer or poleaxe. Since I'm not trained in any melee weaponry I'll hope to get a lucky hit in that will smash through his armor before he guts me with a spear.

Wasp knife would be great if you found a chink in the armor (but it's a nip in there instead dohoho)

Bayoneted rifle is the most ideal but I'm sure that's "cheating"

How have none of you faggots suggested the Clan/k/ trebuchet?

Depends. If the samurai is unarmored, probably an Urumi (some weird ass flexible sword from India) or long ass flail (or a chain or somethi:ng)

If said samurai wears his armour, then a combination of metal net and a mace

>pic related

>Samurai armor isn't bulletproof
>The introduction of the tanegashima by the Portuguese in 1543[3] along with a change in battle tactics caused the Japanese armour makers to change the design of the dō from the centuries-old lamellar armours to plate armour constructed from iron and steel plates, this type of armour was called tosei gusoku (new armours).[4] Bullet resistant dō were developed, this type of armour was called tameshi gusoku (bullet tested)[5] allowing samurai to continue wearing their armour despite the increasing use of firearms.
