Name Your Blade

Longsword

Rapier


The eternal debate over what is the best sword is as loaded as what is the best martial art. But this little video is one of the better discussions of the issue from the point of view of the one on one duel. Enjoy!

Andrew, thanks for stopping by! I have added your links to my links page, looks like you are doing a bang up job on your blog! Keep up the good work. Glad you like the HM stuff--it's a bit of a passion of mine :-)

Stephen, thank you. I found that gentleman on Youtube some time ago and added him to my historical combat lists. I have many players over the years desperately in love with the rapier and many who gainsaid it's usefulness against other "stronger" blades. Though this was a good point of comparison.

See you soon!
