i think katanas r better 4 fiteing bcuz u can block gun bulletz with them and they r good 4 killing ppl my mom said that my dad was a sword fiter and he used a katana and the new game ninja gaden black was made after him and he can block bulletz in that game so it is the best sword i think
i think that the other sword sux bcuz u cant block bulletz and kill ppl as good bcuz katans r the best bcuz they use them as samurais and ninjas and in kill bill so they r the best i forgot to say that i saw them shoot one with a bullet and it cut it in half that is all

I'd like to see someone use a katana to open a bottle. we all know that the cutlass was designed for manly things like eating steak and opening beer. who needs presision.

I had a 442 back in college, ran great, excellent highway cruiser....but I digress.

Most of my melee characters still stick with the Katana (Dikote of course) as the edged weapon of choice. (ST +4) S is pretty good especially when you have a couple of levels of Muscle Augmentation.

Katanas can be used for deflecting bullets, huh? I tell you what - I'll give you my Katana, you give me your gun, and we'll have it out Colonial style - A ten-step duel.

....Yeah, block that.

I think he refers to an experiment that is shown in a video spread on the web. There some japanese guys fire some rounds from a heavy machinegun at the edge of a traditionaly forged japanese sword. Before finally breaking the sword cuts three or four bullets in half.

SR4 now has skill-based concealment rules, although a Katana is still fairly difficult.

Yeah... except that the gun was aimed directly at the katana, and directly at the cutting edge (rather than the side of the blade). Personally, I'd like to see the same test done with a tennis ball shooter. :)

scroll down, right-click/save as on "Sword vs Gun"

I'm afraid I can't find I can't find the link where the sword was completely shredded by a machine gun, but, assuming superhuman strength, reflexes, eyesight, and nerve (you know, you're average shadowrunner), you could do pistols.

there is a video on the SOG knives site where a jacketed bullet is fired at the edge of one of their knives and is cut in half. kinda cool. and the beverly hill ninja wasn't using katanas to deflect bullets, I think the swords were chinese or something.

The result would be two holes in you instead of one. The bullets are cut in half but their momentum is conserved.

that and the fact that a katanas strength is along the edge, if you shot the side of the blade I'm quite sure it would shatter, then you still have to deal with bullets 2-10 as well as the shrapnell

The edge is more likely to shatter as harder steels are more brittle, as well. The spine of the blade is soft and may break, but it certainly won't shatter. One of the big advantages of the Katana's design is that it will bend if one puts too much torque on it while cutting bit it usually won't break. Thus, it can still b used in combat and it can potentially be repaired. Still, I wouldn't counnt on it withstanding a bullet impact. Breaking is the most probable outcome.

I'm meaning that a bullet will do less damage to the 1 inch depth of the blade than the 1/8 inch thickness. the edge will likely crack yes, but the way they are tempered the spine should hold the blade togther if only the edge is damaged. and while a katana may bend if the stress is perpendicular to the blade, it may not handle twisting so much, which could happen when the bullet hits it. and I suppose fragment would have been a better word than shatter.
