NaarioDaharis Posted April 9, 2014 Share Posted April 9, 2014 And to further your point real, broadswords are really sharp, meant to kill people, and replicas are not. They are really sharp, but armor exists for a reason. Swords are not as sharp as movies would have you believe, and they were not used to deflect other blades. That is the point of a shield. People block with blades in movies because the clanging sound is cool for the audience to hear. Swords would break if they were swung against each other like that all the time. You can love the fight scene if you want. I don't. Broadswords are heavy for 10 year old girls and it does take muscle to push through leather and mail and steel (though leather is not real armor, it just looks cool in shows).
