    He agrees that simple data-knowledge on weaponry and armory , i.e. their weight, can be aquired in museum and school. As I stated.

Museen wie das Klingenmuseum in Solingen sind eher Ausnahme als die Regel.
    he questions, that there is little to learn about (historical) forging or (historical) way to fight, in museum, reenactment, etc.
    I would agree here to, but cannot see, how this was part of the discussion.

    he is asking how a blad was forged (1), i.e. in the 13.th century, how it was used (2), the weight (3), the blades thickness (4), steel analysis(5).

    I have no books on that at hand, not my field of interest anyway. just what I recall. be my guest.
    1. short answer impossible to me, and I am not an expert on this anyway
    2. besides old handbooks, noone knows. everybody that watched it is dead now. my guess: fast, stabbling, cutting and tricking. laying on speed.
    3. for a singlehanded sword, 700 - 1200 g (2 to 3 pound)
    4. sharp end 3 mm, other end 7 mm
    5. I have no idea, nor have I noticed it to be on topic.

    He's complaining, museum-visitors with basic education won't be able to answer those questions for european swords, but for japanese swords every moron could answer them.

    I doubt the answers on japanese swords will be so much more accurate than on any other historical weapon. My guess is, japanese experts ears are going to bleed for the crap people talk about katana no matter what.
    well enough answers on european swords seem more likely to me.

    He asks for my enlighted answers on that matter, like it matters. Me calling him without answering would terminate that conversation.
    So far I did. Stil, this is no school-test. my point IS NOT about nerdish historic-tool-data. I made my point clear and there evidence is still lacking. and now brat, do me that favor and deliver evidence on what you claim or cut that part.

    Almost forgot:

    Dear kenning-****
    this is not about other art-practitioneers, be it chinese, japanese, etc.
    this is about you and your rubbish statements. you duck answering questions, propably not even reading them, playing drama and heavily exeggerating to the point of irritation.

    this is an english-speaking-forum, try to keep it that way, please.

    Since my first post it was all about weight, length, sharpness, forging techique, steel quality and fighting finesse. Numerous links included.

    1. All the people I spoke to and who revealed their ignorance, pretty difficult to give a proof there, since you have to know all of them personally.
    2. Respected authors like Stephen Turnbull and David Nicolle write in favor of East. Random Katana fan sites full of crap. And of course bullshit shows (myth #8) on TV.
    3. If you ever visit a "Mittelaltermarkt" (= Rennaisance Fair) ask all the guys with swords about weapons 'n stuff, and of course some visitors. There you'll see.

    OK, that's it, Im fukin retire. If some CMA practs wanna believe in inferiority of Europe, believe what you want. And not be shocked when you discover that Hollywood movies and Anime are bullsrap, as well as "expert opinions" from Peter Woodward or Alan Baker.

    No more trolling and OFFTOPIC there.

    Who here said anything about European swords being inferior?? Hell I pretty much said the opposite. At this point you are just:

    Hai Guyz,

    My name is Kenning and I came from Germany to launch a blitzkrieg on an argument none of you have made.

    What's that?

    None of you are actually building the strawman I want to attack.

    Entschuldigung, but I must rant at this strawman I'm so determined to argue with, even if it means making up my own arguments to argue against myself.
    Kenning, shouldn't you be out occupying a Mediterranean tax ministry telling them how to pay their taxes and not be slovenly Katzenfresser.
