Do you even understand the those swords? They cut well (double edge), can stab with the point and the hook, catch other weapons or limbs with the hook, the hand guard is also sharp and can block and cut with it. Do you know how to use them at all? I don't think so.
no, they can't stab well at all with that big round "point". you know "stabbing ability" is a function of "pressure" over "area". the more you increase the "area" of the point, the more you increase the power needed to actually stab anything. i would actually just wear my winter jacked and dare you to try and stab me with those. i bet i'd be fine. shure slicing could work if there weren't those weird tips that would stop a successfull slice...if you want something for hooking the opponents weapon, i highly suggest those things:those are way more efficient and don't compromise slicing or stabbing for hookability.
it's not all bad though. i kind of like those hand guards of yours but i feel like in certain blocking situations, you'd cut yourself.
I said stabbing not thrusting, you can stab with the point of the hook. And this knife will break, it's good for small weapons, not against big ones.
The guards are not sharp from the inside, you have to be talented to cut yourself with the guards.
I can't thrust with the swords though, but they weren't designed for it anyway.
yeah with that small point, you'll make an ouchie, not a fight deciding wound xD also i obviously saw that the inside of the hand guard isn't sharp. but you get in blocking situations, where you stab your belly, chest or your other arm with that thing so that's not terribly convenient. i mean it looks cool and i bet it's super cool in theory but it's not practical. nobody says a sword has to be practical to be your favourite. i just prefer practical. you do you.
I agree it's not useful against armor, but the hook can definitely stab quite a bit. As for the self stab with the guards and back point, that's why you need skill.
The main purpose is to slash with the central part of the sword and catching things with the hook
