Daily reminder the portrayal of the katana in your pathetic animes&mangas is utterly exaggerated. Actually it's quite shitty compared to real swords.
>>
/k/ pls
>>
Blades are made to cut people not to cut other blades ffs
>>
Yeah because that's where anime is really falls apart as a medium, unrealistic katanas
>>
>real swords

>inb4 this is not how you use a katana, its like a super sharp razor meant to cut through meat
No, katanas were actually garbage. European swords werent just more durable, but also sharper and often lighter (katanas are 2h weapons with some actual weight behind them).
>>
>>121499639
I wish there was a protagonist that ran around fucking shit up with a caestus and a grosse messer.
That'd be fucking rad.
>>
Katana are given quite the backlash lately to counter all the hype. Sadly, people are overdoing it a little. Katana were by no means bad swords. They weren't superior to what Europe had, but if they were "bad" swords, then pretty much all European swords made during the Early Middle Ages and before were bad as well, because they were made in a similar fashion.
>>
That's not how it was intended to be used retard. You don't just slam your sword as hard as you can against a big stationary piece of metal. Of course that will be bad for the blade.
>>
The average katana was not very good. One made by a master smith like Kotetsu could hold its own really well.

But that is the point. The rest of the world moved on and turned it into a science. Japan didn't.
>>
>>121500114
It was meant to put the myth that katana could cut through other swords to the test (which is obviously nonsense).

Doesnt matter how good they were made when they basically consisted of dirt that the japs fished outta the river.

>>121500233
Ah, the video by the genius who doesn't even know about the anti-armor tool on the European broadsword.

Listening to R Lee Ermy say Katana is making my week.

These pathetic american "documentaries".
My linked video shows someone who actually knows what he does and talks about. One of the best smiths in the world in both european and japanese ways of forging. Also he is decently skilled since a child in japanese and european combattechniques.

That still doesn't mean that what people had before was bad.

>>121500258
Where do you think did Europe get their iron from during the Early Middle Ages and before?
>>
>>121500101
Europe fought constant wars against different enemies. They had to evolve their weapons in order to survive.

Japan has never been invaded until WW2, which led to people still use poor metal, badly shaped and overweight blades for the longest time. There's really no point in making better weapons if people can't even wear proper armor.
>>
>>121499639
Next you're going to tell me little girls can't wield swords that are twice the size of their body effectively.
>>

>what people had before was bad.
Depends on your definition of bad, really.
>>
>>121500006
You mean an MC using katana that got rekt from a guy that ran around fucking shit up with a caestus and a grosse messer.

At least try to not following "MC is different" cliche, retard.

If it was poor metal, then most of what was used during the Early Middle Ages was poor metal too, yet it did its job just fine. Japan had a lot of infighting, and when it comes to warfare people usually abandon what is impractical.

>badly shaped and overweight blades for the longest time.
War knife type weapons were also common in Europe. Sabre type weapons have been around since at least the 7th century.

>people can't even wear proper armor.
The Japanese wore mail armour reinforced with metal plates. It was quite comparable with what was worn during the 13th century in Europe.
>>
>>121500585
Certainly not a weapon which does its job well enough that people stick with it for centuries.

that's why it failed you dipshit. proper katanas could literally cut through your mum if given the chance.

The guy in the video is Steffan Roth and he didn't even went to college.

>>121500835
You don't need to go to college to become a blacksmith.
>>
>>121499639
anyone got the one where the katana magicly changes to a broadsword and breaks the other broadsword.
>>
>>121500772
Pity, thats about it. Stuff like that is made when people are poisoned by gmo food and fluorided water, which inhibits proper brainfunctions. But who am I telling this.
>>
>>121499746
Thats why they used wooden armor. Even that was enough to protect from katana
