I wouldn't doubt that at all, but remember that the Japanese were on an island with absolute shit metals and never really had neighbouring warring countries to learn from, only some Mongols pestering them.

Then we came in by boat, gave them guns and "the word of god".

Rapier master race
>>
>>259945870
They've fought each other whole the time though. It's just their fencing that sucked dick and treated swords as a last resort weapon.

When Portuguese came for the trade(late 16th century I think) numerous samurai got rekt by fucking simple sailors, that's how shit their fencing technique was.
>>
>>259945870
Basically killed Samurai culture. Sooner or later a family climbed over the dead samurai and burned the word of god there and locked down the whole country.

>>259941861
Ok, here's the deal:

Does anyone really think a shitty show like Welt der Wunder shelled out enough cash to obtain even the most basic of Katanas?
At best that thing is some no-name Paul Chen knockoff (and Paul Chen himself is a hack, mind you)

So while you might get a somewhat decent sword for like a thousand euro, you will never get a decent Katana for the same amount of money. As a matter of fact, that Katana in that video might as well be some wallhanger-shit (seeing how it did bend instead of snap, I assume it's way too soft anyway).

But be that as it may:

Both eastern and western swords are equally able to be used to great effect by a trained person, it only depends on the circumstances what weapon is better suited to your needs.
>>
>>259945491
If you think "parry = knocking the edges against each other" you are wrong to a point where I doubt it would make sense to tell you why you are wrong.

To make a long story short:
When the edges of two weapons touch, they render each other useless.

Correct parrying is NEVER done with the edge of a blade. NEVER. As in: NO exceptions.

What the fuck are you even talking about? Let me guess, all you know about Japan, you learned from the series called 'Shogun'?
>>259946405
Well. Christianism spread over Japan, then some spanish ambassador's affiliate fucked up at a huge party and Japan went medieval on their asses. Culminated in the Shimbara Uprising (or something) which lead to the destruction of christianism in Japan for the next few centuries.

>>259949214

Okay! That settles that.

>chinks invented blast furnaces hundreds of years before the west, at the height of roman empire

Island nations have low carbon content shit iron. Japanese swords have to be folded a million times to cut unarmored peasants, that's how shit they were.

Believe it or not, the most knightly weapon was, swords aside, the mace.

Peasants were not allowed to partake in tournaments, however wealthy citizens could partake and even had the right to have a coat of plates. However they were limited to lesser things such as jousting, the most important and most knightly things were not open to the non-knights. And one of these tournaments was the mounted melee with maces.

That is why some coat of arms have a frogmouth helmet (those usually are coat of arms for people who weren't knights) and some with a kind of helmet like pic related. These latter helmets were used for the mounted melee with maces (and were used to denote noble descent on coat of arms)

Note this particular way of using frogmouth helmets or mace-combat-helmets wasn't used throughout history and it wasn't used throughout europe, but in France and Germany it was very popular.

Also: It really depends on the time, before the 15th century, I'd argue the most knightly weapons were the Sword, Lance, Mace and maybe the Axe.

I know you're baiting me but even as a joke the million times thing is retarded.
Assuming you fold it 60 times a minute it's still gonna take 12 days of 24/7 forging to make a single katana of average quality with that metric
>>
>>259945565

Yeah. After Katana already weakened it!
>>
>>259950789
Genpei war.
Onin war.
The warring states period.
Just to name 3 major events.

Japan had it's fair share of huge military engagements throughout history. And you think all they did was 'cutting down unarmored peasants'?

People who gush over how AAAWSUM the Katana was are fucking annoying. But people who do the exact opposite are equally as retarded and annoying.

Both sides should grab a book and fucking read up on that shit.

Every time you fold it the number of folds doubles. You are imagining it wrong.

>>259952917
Oh god. They do know how to fence but they certainly aren't masters.
Just looking at the unarmored guys footwork makes me cringe, it's like he's irish and trying to suppress his urges to slip into a riverdance routine before revealing the location of his pot of gold.

No because only retards ever used cutting weapons instead of stabbing or crushing ones

Little emo bitches I swear
>>
>>259953070
>It combines the best geometry of both worlds
While also completely and utterly ruining the centre of mass, making this weapon slow, cumbersome and hard to control.

And I highly doubt the blade would cut that good since part of a sabres (and Katanas) cutting power is coming from the angle of handle/blade, not the bend of the blade alone.
>>
>>259953070
Those things were never seen on anything bigger than a shortsword during bronze era.
Also, the added weight to the tip could make that thing unbalanced or too heavy.

The isolation was a direct result of Japanese authorities not wanting christianism to fuck them over as it had done to basically every other non-european country it had touched till then.
