Weeaboo faggot that is also terribly wrong. How delightful.
>I can even cut slabs of solid steel with my katana.
no, you can't.
>Japanese smiths spend years working on a single katana and fold it up to a million times
trillion billion gazzilion. Also, not to ruin your shit, but do you know why japanese weaponsmiths had to do that? 'Cause they had shitty materials, and making workable weapons required tons of work.
> to produce the finest blades known to mankind.
no. Shitty steel = shitty blade, triangular katana blade = ABSOLUTE shit for penetrating anything other than their shitty bamboo/silk armour.
>Katanas are thrice as sharp as European swords
which swords? Florentine rapiers, nordic longswords, greatswords, bastard swords, cleavers?
>and thrice as hard for that matter too.
'cause japanese smiths used MAGIC to eliminate the flaws which were caused by their shity iron, and transformed them into magical blades, and bound daemons into them. It's true, i saw a manga about it.
>Anything a longsword can cut through, a katana can cut through better
Not anything. The katana, due to the curved triangular blade is terrific against bare flesh - true that. Try a wide swipe against chain mail, and you'll be spanked by all those pesky laws of physics.
>I'm pretty sure a katana could easily bisect a knight wearing full plate with a simple vertical slash.
two things could happen:
1. the katana goes 'boink', and you damage the edge of your sword, rendering it useless
2. You actually manage to get through for an inch, and due to a wedge-shaped you have your only means of both attack and defense lodged into a steel plate. And what would happen next, which is being battered to death by a mace, isn't pretty
>Ever wonder why medieval Europe never bothered conquering Japan?
For the same reasons they haven't taken over australia, that is because of Japan being on the other side of the fucking globe.
