The Rapier vs Broadsword Debate. The Rapier being light, accurate, refined- a nobleman's weapon for the elite. Versus the standard basket style Broadsword, heavy duty, reliable- a common man's weapon. Seems that not much has changed, heavy duty and reliable wins the day.

I'm not much into swords other than I would like to have a quality repop of a Teutonic Knights sword from the third crusade.
That and maybe a Russian sword bayonet for the AK, anyone know where I can get one if those, only ever seen one picture of one,be a nice wall hanger

I got one of those 22" HI Kukri's that weighs about 3 lbs. The back of it is over 1/2" thick. It can be wielded with about a hand and a half. It can chop through tree limbs. I got it thinking I'd use it like a machete but frankly it's to heavy for that kind of usage. I also have a smaller one that was from WWII era- original with the leather scabbard that has seen better days. Full tang, always works.
