Bladed Weapons of the East  
 
     
 

There are many different types of bladed weapons. Each weapon has a specific purpose in a particular situation.

Long swords are typically used for slashing attacks. While short swords are typically for stabbing attacks.

Polearms were first in wide-spread use on horseback. Cavalry would stab at ground troops due to a much longer reach.
