Samurai kill enemy by cutting artery with keen and light sword. Knight kill enemy by crushing body with heavy and big sword. Knight`s armor is too firm for Samurai to cut with Katana, Samurai would be crush by knight.
Seybold was attacked by Japanese, but he seem to have beet up with saber easily.
43 anonymous :2008/11/19(wed) 11:02:02.99 ID:TjT6JjPf0 We shall make rule. The strongest knight VS The strongest samurai One to one.
46 anonymous :2008/11/19(wed) 11:05:16.16 ID:84JPwqgT0 >>43 Heroic tales are almost myth. We shouldn`t swallow them and can`t know their true strength.
49 anonymous :2008/11/19(wed) 11:07:53.40 ID:cRbuzYVY0 >>43 After all, stronger will win regardless of Samurai or Knight. Even if the strongest samurai win, only he is strong, we can`t say all samurais are strong.
51 anonymous :2008/11/19(wed) 11:10:09.10 ID:TjT6JjPf0 >>49 I see. So posit like following situation.
Samura VS Knight
They were peasant, and after training for a year
55 anonymous :2008/11/19(wed) 11:16:32.88 ID:cRbuzYVY0 >>51 …are you really stupid? Only person who get stronger would win.
If amateurs fight with armor, person who wear firm and large armor. But moving with too heavy armor is difficult for amateur
Samurai in Sengoku era fought with spear. Even western armor would be made hole by being stuck with keen spear. Spear is long, so fight would end before approaching.
In fist-to-fist battle, knight has advantage because of their body build.
By the way, Japanese armor isn`t cut by western sword easily. But he will feel shock like being hit by blunt instrument.
57 anonymous :2008/11/19(wed) 11:17:42.51 ID:f+xECPJaO >>54 Really? Armor is made hole?
67 anonymous :2008/11/19(wed) 11:23:58.80 ID:kktkcPiKO >>57 Never. Knight`s sword is heavier than Japanese spear. Because knight`s armor endure being hit by that sword, Japanese spear never be able to make hole on it.
>>67 Iron plate isn`t so strong against power from perpendicular. If Samurai fail to stick straightly, Katana would be break. But sticking straightly is easier than cutting with sword. So true Samurai could make hole, I think
100 anonymous :2008/11/19(wed) 11:48:11.17 ID:kktkcPiKO >>91 If it`s right, there seem to be weapon like spear. There is no way that western knight never come up with using spear, thought we came up with it easily.
107 anonymous :2008/11/19(wed) 11:54:47.41 ID:dU6jfULI0 >>100 I assumed usual weapon. So knight`s usual weapon is sword or lance, right?
112 anonymous :2008/11/19(wed) 12:07:29.08 ID:kktkcPiKO >>107 Assuming they fight at war, they would fight closely. If knights who wear such heavy and firm iron armor rush with horse, Samurais have no way to beat up them.
