      Why are you posting the Port of Chania?

        Anyway, Chania is pretty but the best thing about it is that it's half an hour away from Rethymno, the best pussy in Greece.

        Though don't try it now because it's off pussy season (Uni exams).

          Just noticed the date, you could've gone to pussyheaven then. Though it's a bit close to Christmas.

          Rethymno has a bunch of humanities universities, it's full of women from all over Greece.

    autistic sharpening in conjunction with poor material made it too delicate to parry, too heavy to be used one handed, and too slow and short compared to designs using okish steel
    but it was status symbol so i guess it was best at being expensive and hard to make?

      >poor material
      Not even, The Japanese basically invented high carbon steal when combining iron ore with the carbon in charcoal used over multiple reheating and refolding of the blade. The sometimes thousands of folds in a Katana would embed carbon from the charcoal inside the blade at a molecular level. The more folds, the higher the carbon content of the steel and the stronger it would be. I've seen a few 300+ year old Japanese Katana and the folds and beauty of it can't be matched by modern blades. Of course a lot of modern steal is stronger as is but such is technology.

        and in reality fold was done few times as you degenerate steel changing its crystalline structure and loosing carbon with every reheating to welding temperature and with 10 reheats whatever material you used would be ruined to the point it should be melted and recast - it might still look good but will have poor characteristics

        "high carbon steal" is poorly suited for swords, you fricking moron. Most decent swords, including japanese ones, had a low-ish carbon content of around 0.7%.

        I'm sure they had great thieves but i doubt they had any more carbon in them than your average western taffer, anon.

    Japanese swords were expensive to manufacture and impractical in combat.
    The Yari was far more impressive being a pole weapon and was the primary secondary weapon of the samurai after the Yumi.

      The arquebus became the main samurai weapon after it arrived

    You have to knead rhe sword 1000 times for the metalgluten to strech and cut the pig. Everybody knows this by now.

    The Type 32 is good, but I wouldn't call it the best saber. I might put it in the top 10 though.
    You are talking about sabers of course, and I know this because you're asking about the best sword in history and we all know that that would be a saber of some kind.
