USER FOREVER BANNED UNTIL DUKE NUKEM FOREVER & HALF-LIFE 2 EPISODE 3 IS RELEASED

A samurai or a European knight. If it matters we can say the samurai was traveling with a trading expedition along the silk road and encountered a boisterous Western European knight in the squalid streets of Ankara. Serious replies only and all weapons used must weigh pounds or they are basically worthless and won't help

Could a samurai sword even get through a suit of heavy armor?

Chainmail or plate probably not. Japanese steel was actually pretty lousy and their swords were very light in weight. They were primarily slashing weapons because japanese warriors were comparatively lightly armoured. Good for removing limbs and lacerating, but not cleaving through metal. The samurai's armour would have been made mostly of leather and wood. He would need some sort of pole-arm and would have to keep his distance utilizing the only advantage he would have which would be mobility.

Whose face you're wearing today ?


Due to superior agility a samurai would stab a knight in the face.

A better question would be: Who would win in a fight between two equally matched, trained and experienced people but one of them has a disadvantage?

Mail armor, and even suits of plate not made for jousting and other sorts of tournaments, allow for a very high degree of mobility precisely because they knew that a fast unarmored guy has an advantage over someone who can't move

The knight probably has a horse and can just go and raze the poo poo out of the samurai's village while the samurai is miles behind so the knight imo
