How come Ebony isn't on any of the other ones

Part 3! here we go!

41: A hidden blade! Very nice. Normally I'd be talking about how the blade is thin and there's no guard or anything, but it's a hold out weapon, and made to be inconspicuous, so anything to make it blend in is great. Also excuses how thin hidden blades have to be, because, again, hold out weapon.

42: No complaints here. Seems like a perfectly sensible saber for a Privateer.

43: Guard slopes inward. I suppose it could be a cup guard, but I'm not sure. Also, IMO, this weapon, with it's history of being used by griffin riders would probably look better as a lance, which would also make the cup guard perfect for it.

44: No complaints here other than maybe enlarge the pommel.

45: Seems to offer little hand protection. With the thin, long blade, you could put a crossbar on this sword and give it a basket hilt to make it a perfect rapier.

46: Darn, and here you were on a hot streak. Well, the blade is way too big, and of course the holes in the blade would mess with its cutting power. Also, pointy bits pointing towards the user isn't going to help at all.

47: the blade seems a bit bulbous and could do with streamlining. the cross guard should also be slimmed down, but kept about as wide. Of course, these only means anything if the negative space of the blade is solid, which I'm going to assume. If NOT, then a sword would probably slide through one of the holes in the guard and chop off your fingers the first time you tried it on someone.

48: usually, with fuzzy guards like those, I assume there's some sort of cup guard under there, in which case it should cover more of the hand. The spine of the blade is still perfectly useable, but could be smoothed out a bit. pommel should also be bigger.

49: it's obvious you took inspiration from a kukri while making this, but if you want to get the special properties of a kukri (namely not needing to angle the wrist while making a cut) then you have to make the blade bend inwards much more. Think 45 degrees. If this is the size of a sword, then it'd probably going to need some kind of hand guard, in this case, i'd say something like a knuckle bow. if it's the size of a kukri, then the guard is fine.

50: Seems fine, but the part of the guard with the tiny mirrors could probably slope into the guard a bit better for more protection. 

51: Yikes, this thing looks unwieldy. Strange shaped blade messes with cutting power & it only seems to have edges on certain parts of the blade too and that's no good (even though this blade is already edgy enough! *ba-dum tss*). the guard needs slimming down, and the handle could also be slimmer. The thing is way too big as a whole, basically everything here could be slimmed down. Also, having a charm on a chain on the end of the handle has got to be annoying in battle. even more so if the charm on it is actually sharp. I do like the little points running up from the guard alongside the blade though. If the blade had a more normal shape, they'd probably be very useful for catching opponents blades.

52: As I've said before with 39, emerald is a bad material for swords. I suppose if "Enchanted" means "Super durable" then it'd be fine though. No complaints otherwise.

53: The only problem I have with this is the gold rings on top of the guard. Practically, none would be fine. Artistically though? 2 is probably best, maybe 3 for fashions sake, but the 4th is overdoing it i'd think. I'm only going into fashion because this is supposed to be a national symbol though.

54: Ordinarily i'd say, "a triple blade serves no purpose", but that isn't true because of trident daggers. Although, the 3 part blade of a trident dagger wasn't used for a combat advantage, it was used for parrying. I suppose a trident sword might work? of course, it would be unwieldy because of the weight of the sword and the maneuvering you'd have to do with the trident part to use it effectively, in which case, why not just bring a regular sword and a trident dagger? as for the design, slimmer blade, and the guard would probably work if the blade were slimmer, but the guard could be wider and thinner too.

55: Honesty, if you're going to make a wooden training sword, you should probably make it as simple as possible. Like, textbook arming sword simple, because beginners are idiots. Also, this looks like it could give you some serious splinters. Sand that sword! As for the sword itself, remove that hunk of wood below the guard and above the handle and you're golden.

56: This is just a real sword. I suppose I can't complain about it, but that seems like a bit of a cop out.

57: Slim the blade, get rid of the circle thing above the guard, I'm sure you're getting the gist of this now. Although, here's a new point for you. The guard? That double knuckle bow? Real bad idea. Imagine holding it, it'd bump into your wrist no matter what side you held it from. it'd throw off your edge alignment because it's bumping you as well. The worst part about it though? if someone aims for the guard while you're holding the sword, the guard will hit your wrist, meaning a bruise and pain at best and a broken wrist at worst. Get rid of one side of the circular knuckle bow and it'll be fine.

58: More material talk! Steel and stone? Don't mix. Oil and water, really. You see, the best kind of steel is pure steel. (Well, pure from a simple standpoint, not a metallurgical one, being iron with special carbon impurities.) Stone and steel can't really be made into an alloy. You can make a billet of metal with stony elements in it, but it will be poor quality, crumbly and hard to work with (from what I've seen. I'm no blacksmith.). If you want really good steel, you have to melt away the stony elements first. you might look into the crucible process to learn about this further. As for the blade, It's I'll suited for combat, but i'd say that this is based off an old executioners sword. Those were ceremonial, so of course they'd be bad for combat.

59: I'd say get rid of the bit above the handle but below the yellow gem and enlarge the pommel. otherwise, no complaints. Gotta wonder how "Stars" works as a material though.

60: Honestly, supersizing a knife is a funny idea story wise, but an awful idea pragmatically. Just get a regular sword! Jeez! Also, these chefs really have no respect for their tools, just leaving them covered in blood like that. Cleanliness comes first in a kitchen, so knives are usually made of stainless steel. Stainless steel is good for knives, but bad for swords, as it's brittle. It's usually used for wall hanger swords though, on account of the fact that nobody really wants to maintain their blade. If they used stainless steel for this giant knife, like they would for a regular knife, they're in for a big surprise when the blade shatters on impact!

y'know, these comments take me like 1-2 hours to write, after fact checking. I gotta say though, it's a pretty fun exercise, chasing all these wild tangents around, seeing where they'll lead me. Look forward to 61-80!

number 41 is more of a rapier, a type of sword
LucienVox's avatar
In truth you'd be almost correct except i planed it to be a fully straight double edged blade more like a saber using a rapier hilt in place of a traditional hilt for a saber.

is a real kung fu/ shaolin weapon!

I love 'em all!

Does anyone else think that the Giant Cooking Knife looks like Zangetsu from Bleach?
