weight misconecptions.it seams common misconception is weight of different weapons. for some reason blunt weapons have gotten a stigma for begin insanely heavy when compared to counter parts in ranged and blades. example katana at ~ 3lb and double bit ax 3.5lb sledge 6 lb 3 lb is the difference between a weapon viewed as light agile and one that will put you of balance and take forever to recover. also inserting to note an sks is 8.5 lb i have a few reason this misconception might have occurred.
1 people mistake wood chopping and splinting for actually battle strikes 2 most of the times people see a katan used it by some on you has had a lot of training. 3 (which i hope is true) the wiki has become full of weak couch potatoes.
