Rated 4 / 5 stars

I certainly like the history of knights over the history of feudal Japan, but I even though the plate armor would deflect most strikes, I feel the nimbleness of the samurai would allow him to use more piercing shots that might get through some of the openings in the armor. He's just going to be way faster and accurate than the knight.


Kiabugboy responds:

Ah, I thought so too, but then I remembered that the katana is a slashing weapon while to pierce the gaps in the plates, a puncturing sword like the European ones would be most effective.

You might be right on the speed thing though :p that two-handed sword is probably pretty heavy to wield
