Before I found this site my good friend and I have been planning our infestation tactics and our melee weapon of choice is a katana. I believe that when push comes to shove in a close proximity, and with a prepared sharp enough katana, damage would be great. I would like to hear your thoughts about this fantasic ancient weapon as a defense against the undead.
Light, agial and it fits into small spaces.

Greig wrote:Me and a friend were once talking about katana, and we came to the conclusion that, although a properly made katana hardly ever gets dull and is made of strong steel and is curved for strength, a big chunk of sharpened metal is just less likely to break and [although you need to shapren it] is therefore better.
So what about a normal sword, or a machete?

Absit wrote:A good point with tight places. There's a reason the samurai wore a short sword (wakizashi) as well as their katana(s). A katana in a hallway is not an effective weapon, the wakizashi is much more deadly in small spaces because angles of attack aren't as limited.

On a side note, why would a katana not get dull?
Brash wrote:Theres a lot of myth surrounding the katana, due in no small part to television. The reason it was folded steel was to get an even distribution of carbon through the whole blade. With modern high carbon blades theres no need to fold the blade. They are exceptional swords, but nothing magical.

It's funny, people are always forgetting that true Katanas were folded steel because Japan had some of the crappiest iron ore EVER. It's also weird that so many people think they're indestructable and can cut through European style swords easily....
Joe Ghoul wrote:True that.
I love that people seem to give katanas qualities that only swords in Star Wars have.
Its a great sword design, don't get me wrong. A great balance between appearance and function.
Put Kill Bill on pause, and do a Google search.
