Re: (TFT) chances of doing very little damage

Quoting Mark Tapley <mtapley@swri.edu>:

	Is that true, or is that an embellishment that is practically
never achievable in actual combat?

Definitely true with sharp blades against non-armour, less true against armour, where concussive effect is better. But then, when plate came in, the masters of the time really didn't bother teaching strikes with a sword against armour, because they were ineffective.
	If true, could it account for some of the instances of
"wicked" vs. "dud" chops with PvK's broadswoard?
