OVER THE TOP LADS!
Is that an arming sword next to a WW1 helmet?
It is more of a medieval style sword. Why they went with a medieval style of sword and what it represents I'm not sure. But this is the tomb of the unknown soldier in Ottawa at the Canadian National war memorial in case your interested
That's an arming sword. One-handed double-edged sword with a simple crossguard.
Actually that looks more like a longsword. Same thing but with a longer blade and handle to accommodate two handed use.
Yeah, I agree, that seeing the full image it's definitely a longsword, but I also thought it was an arming sword at first.
Also, arming swords are bae.
They're basically the Glock of sword design. Can't really go
with an arming sword.
As a good American, you have angered me sir. The arming sword is clearly the 1911 of swords. Good, reliable, iconic, sexy, and a beautiful balance of power, and control.
I always thought the 1911 was equivalent to the longsword, the .45 being more suited to two-handed use.
Nah, thanks to the weight of the 1911, it's actually extremely easy recoil. Easier than a glock for sure.
The extra weight & length of a longsword would do that too.
Ah, but weight in guns and swords is opposite. More weight in a gun is easier to handle, but conversely, more weight in a sword makes it harder to handle. Requires more strength to redirect your blade if you miss, and more energy to swing each time.
Depends on how it's distributed. And Glocks are typically more commonly wielded in one hand (such as with a ballistic shield) than 1911s, which lends more to their pairing with swords.
That's because they're more commonly used by police due to capacity, not recoil. They just train more to handle the recoil better than most people.
Same with arming swords, which were more commonly used with bucklers or rotellas.
Arming swords are used for their ammo capacity?
You can use them for longer in one hand and they're a more popular sidearm.
You can use the 1911 with one hand just fine. Just not with a ballistic shield because you'll probably have to reload sooner unless you're an excellent shot.
Hence why I'd pair a Glock with a shield much like an arming sword, and a typically longer 1911 to a longsword. But I feel like we're comparing apples to oranges here.
