    A same size Katana is alot heavier than a Longsword. The Blade width is also double the thickness. Also, I think you are confusing what you mean by leaf Blade.

    A Leaf Bladed sword is a European design.

    Said meat stick still has a bone density and i would presume (its not like i tested it in real life lol) that the technique required to overcome said bone density is less draining physically than the force you need to apply to do the same with a longsword.

    There is zero difference between cutting with a Katana and cutting with the longsword. the Technique is based around control of the blade and the judging of the strength of your swing.

    As hard as people think it is, Swordplay is not hard, applying Swordplay against another swordsman Is.

    I can't decide which is more hilarious - the Internet Martial Artists (TM) or the people who think owning a sword makes them a bad ass.

    I am sorry, but.

    Why is having a hobby bad? I guess sitting around and being a dullard on the internet is a totally better way to pass the time right?

    Yes, yes it is, But It is also a type of Sword that has the double-edged characteristics of a Longsword, with the curved blade of a Katana. Which gives it the Slashing power of a Katana and the Thrusting/Stabbing power of a European longsword.

    All Longswords I have ever held were of a heavier weight to the relatively equal sized Katanas, and I already knew Leaf Bladed swords were European, I never said they were otherwise.

    You probably held Longswords whos blade is made thicker than they usually are, this is often a fault with replica weaponry.

    This man said it.



    There's a zombie apocalypse weapon for you.

    If you insist on going with a sword, go with a sturdy broadsword and not a katana. A katana requires a lot more maintenance to function properly, and breaks more easily if you're not a trained swordsman, so not exactly ideal for a post-apocalyptic world.
    The world is full of evil and lies and pain and death, and you can't hide from it... You can only face it. The question is, when you do, how do you respond? Who do you become?

    Katana is good only if the zombies are led by Quentin Tarantino.

    Broadsword is too heavy to use repeatedly--you'll be tired after your fifth swing. Not only that, but what about carrying it? You'll be walking cross country, sometimes running. You don't want a heavy-ass sword weighing you down.

    Annnnnd this is why people shouldn't own weapons.

    Friend comes around. Friend gets drunk. Friend stabs friend with the sword.

    Just for once do the right thing and don't buy the actual weapon. Go buy something useful.

    You've watched too many movies. Why would anyone ever make a sword that would tire you out after a few swings? The biggest 2-handed swords to ever have been used for proper battle weighed around 4,5 kilos, or around 10 pounds. A proper broadsword wouldn't weigh much more than 2 kilos, or around 4,5 pounds. Furthermore they were well balanced, making them even easier to handle.

    In movies, actors(stunt crew) are often instructed to make the swords look a lot heavier than they actually are, in order to make the battles look more heroic.

    Having a hobby is one thing.

    Reading Wikipedia articles and regurgitating them to sound knowledgeable on an MMO forum is an entirely different animal.

    I'd think you were equally inane if you were talking like this about cars you'd never actually driven.

    A sharp one. Or at least a pointy one.

    Also, considering it is a zombie apocalypse, do you really think a close quarter weapon is good enough when there are hundreds of zombies surrounding you? It would be like a Zealot being surrounded by Zerglings.... Either way you put it, not good.

    I would go with an MP5 slung over one shoulder, Squall's Gunblade holstered on your right hip, and Sephiroph's super long Katana on your left hip (oh and extra magazines for your MP5 and extra bullets for your Gunblade)

    This way you can engage them from a distance but still have some method of hack and slash should they get too close.

    Arguing about stuff that has no relevance and i have no expertise in is fun to me.
    I would never even consider buying an actual sword but arguing what weapon to best slice down zombies with is enjoyable.

    One that reminds you of how much believing in the idea of a zombie apocalypse makes you sound uneducated and dumb imho.
