    I wrote a similar post about this with only types of spears but in this one, you can choose any bladed weapon.
    Let's say you were matched up with a gladiator in a fight to the death. You could choose any bladed weapon
    (no revolvers please jobo) to fight against the gladiator. With which weapon would you feel the most comfortable with fighting the gladiator.

    I would personally use the guandao or the broadsword because they both have a longer range.

    No, I do not. You said any bladed weapon. That is a bladed weapon. You said nothing about only being able to use a portion of the weapon.
    Are you going to restrict other weapons to only certain parts?

    That is true though. The weapon would count as a handgun, not as a knife because the knife is attached. And when you bought the gun (or if you buy it) it would say handgun with a knife, not knife with a handgun, right?

    And the gun is called the "LaserLyte Pistol Bayonet KA-BAR Mini-Survival Knife Serrated Stainless Steel Blade with Quick-Detachable Picatinny-Style Mount and Polymer Sheath", right?

    Big question what weapon does the other guy have? what training does the other guy have?

    but to answer your first question a ballistic knife. Or a really really long spear.

    Tweaking my answer 500 ballistic knives in a grid pattern fired at once.

    What is the point of this thread? At least I was wanting info on a certain weapon. This is just asking some hypothetical what if scenario.

    I asked this question because I wanted to know what users would do in this scenario, which allows me to get to know people better and their preferences and ideal weapon of choice. :)

    Katana. It's the only one I have even a bit of training in, and the only one I've handled with any regularity. I think other swords are probably superior, but not in my hands.

    Ok well I dont frequent here. I just came back to ask a few questions then will leave. This place along with allot of forums is dead. Anywho the only weapons I practice with are one I can carry every day. Mainly my OC spray and my Kabar knife and a baton. Nothing much else. I may dabble with fans or brass knuckles but at the end of the day that is all. I do not really see the point cause this scenario will likely never happen to me.

    He's right. Your parameter was "bladed weapon". That's a weapon with a blade, hence a bladed weapon. You didn't specify "knife" (or any other specific weapon).

    He's caught you on a technicality. Welcome to MT silliness. :D

    I assumed he was considering a spear as a "pointed weapon".

    Some folks enjoy discussing hypothetical scenarios. If you don't, they probably aren't worth you posting in.

    The spears I use certainly have a blade as well as a sharp point. Think: dagger on a pole.

    Aikido includes some basic sword forms, so if I had to choose a traditional weapon, I'd go with a katana for the same reasons. But, my switchblade comes to mind as it's the only bladed implement I carry and use every day, know the balance of, etc. Plus, it doesn't limit my empty hand techniques.

    Edit: Does it count if I mount a bayonet on a loaded M4?

    But then you immediately started changing the question. So perhaps it reveals more about you than us.123
