The Weight, Size, and Grip of Swords, Knives and Daggers is Crucial

When you’re using a sword, knife or dagger, it’s important to remember a few crucial factors when deciding which’s right for you.

You’ll first want to take into consideration the weight of the weapon. If the weapon is too heavy, it will hinder your ability to react quickly in a fight. If the weapon is too light, it will cause you to judge poorly on the timing of the defensive maneuvers.

Next, you’ll want to pick a weapon that’s properly proportioned to your body. If the sword for example is too small or too big, you won’t be able to defend yourself correctly. If the knife or dagger is too small, it’ll be useless against attackers. 

Finally, you’ll want to find a weapon that has a good grip. The grip is one of the most important pieces of the weapon. The ideal grip on the knife, sword, or dagger will fit comfortable in the palm of your hand, allowing your fingers to wrap all the way around. This is important because it’ll allow you to have full control of the weapon. The grip will also determine how well you do in a fight. No matter if you have the best training, if the grip is bad, you’re more likely to injure yourself or be caught off guard by the opponent. 

The grip on the weapon will also determine the overall quality of it. If the grip’s solid, firm, and made of durable material, it usually is a sign that the blade on the weapon's a firm fit. If the grip's made of material that’ll corrode from the oils and dirt on your hands, it’s a sign the blade won’t stay in place, which could cause an unexpected injury. 

When you’re purchasing a weapon, take into consideration the weight, size, and grip. With the right combination of these three factors, your knife, sword, or dagger will feel like it’s a part of your body.
