Thrand and Eldgrimr compare a a late century dueling Katana to a 9th century Viking long sword in response to the episode of Lock N' Load with R. Lee Ermey the Blades episode were they compare a 15th century European Long Sword against a earlier period Katana on a plate armor. The armor the episode used seemed questionable how easy it was pierced and the long sword like a later century dueling weapon from Renaissance era used for dueling with no armor and most likely not even sharp. Although double edged blades seem to Perice Armor easier due to taper point Thrand explains any sword hitting plate can do better depending on weight and either weapon in History Katana or longsword could beat the other depending on weight Katana can be 3 to 6.5 ponds and long sword can be about the same depending on era and design. The curve really makes no difference on plate only rigidity and weight and point design for thrust. Initial impact is every thing and neither sword really won on that program. By the Way guys the padding under the breast plate might have been a bit much we will test thrust again with out padding soon :P

This is also a response to " Japanese Katana VS European Longsword - Samurai sword VS Knight Broadsword " on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDkoj9...
