        No I mean if that's the penultimate then what is the ultimate? Penultimate means second to last, you can't say the penultimate one is now the ultimate one, that's like saying the guy that came in second place is now first place

      It makes sense though - while such cutlass is great at everything, it is fairly easy to find weapons that perform much better than that in their individual niches. You have vines to chop? Get a machete. You want to stab someone? Get a rapier.

        None of that has anything to with OP's use of penultimate being proper.

        Why'd the Japs get rid of the clip point?

          The real question you should be asking is why does a sword need a clip point?

              Then make it spear pointed from the get go. Nobody wants a hatchet pointed saber anyways and trying to have both with a clip point makes no sense.

      >Too short
      It's for fighting inside a ship, you don't want it too long.
      >Point had
      It's for fighting inside a ship, you want a robust enough tip it won't snap off immediately, and also you are likely fighting sailors wearing thin clothes, so a super pointed tip isn't needed to punch through thick wool jackets or armor.
      >Handle is only good for hammer grip
      U wot M8?

        for thrusting yes
        but wool jacket is a form of armor and actually protects quite a bit more that you appears to say

      Is a Schiavona without a basket guard essentially an arming sword?

      What makes them the least effective? They have roughly the same length of blade, the guard is pretty standard for asian swords, and the handle is long enough to fit two hands but the swords is not heavy enough to require it.

      Yeah

        Heavy, yet narrow blade, pretty bad guard even by Asian standards. I understand the katana had a very synthetic, top-down development history, which always makes wonkiness. It's too specialized for stabbing, considering what it actually is. The uchigatana of the 19th century are probably the best reconciliation of design and use (it's straight), but all of the things that make the blade unorthodox make it beautiful.

          Old left over design, goes back to tye Han dynasty.
          The Ring is there as an attrachment point for ropes/cloth/good luck charms/etc.
          O ya, its also used as a hanging point on walls of the armoury.

        Looks like you could call it a war machete more than a sword. What's wrong with it?

          Big and bulky, while still much shorter than a rifle with a bayonet.

            If I remember correctly, those were given out because a rifle and bayonet were too expensive. I think of that Chinese warlord who armed his irregulars with them for mad charges.

        I've never understood the point of the da dao. Why the short blade when it's two handed? Still a very iconic weapon from the 2nd Sino Japanese war though.

    I want this sword, OP. Cold Steel stopped making their 1917 navel cutlass. This M1941 Klewang is the same thing but better. It's perfect.
