Top 10 Coolest Swords

"Of all the weapons of warfare, there is none that has had more influence than the sword."

Sometime in the late third millennium BC, a flint blade made from quartzite was found in a tomb at Nataruk. It was found with flint blades (flints were the first kind of stone used to make tools) dating back 9,000 years. This discovery shows that not only did humans start making swords around 3500 BC but weapons technology evolved and advanced exponentially from then on. 

This proves that these coolest swords have been an essential weapon for thousands of years and as long as humans have existed, real swords will likely remain one of the most important weapons for millennia. In the first half of the third millennium BC (3,000 - 2,000 BC), copper was used to make maces and axes. 

These weapons were not used simultaneously as swords and were therefore not nearly as important as swords in ancient warfare.

Humans learned how to make iron around 1500 BC. Iron is stronger than copper, allowing humans to make better weapons and tools. Iron was also harder than copper allowing the production of sharp iron blades that could be used for cutting or stabbing. Swords made from iron have been found in Egypt around 1300 BC and even earlier.

Swords are Historical Weapons

There are conventional weapons like guns, cool knives, and grenades, but for some people, there is nothing more satisfying than a good sword.

Swords are like cars. They’re not for everybody - but when they work, they work well. There’s an old saying in martial arts: "A good Samurai will only need their sword" which means that the art of swordsmanship is so effective at disabling or killing opponents that the average Samurai would never have to use any other weapon.

And while it's true that swords used to take many lives during the samurai era, modern weapons and armor have made them much less lethal today. But don’t forget that a sword is often the last thing you will ever hold onto when your life's on the line.

The 10 Coolest Modern Swords

First is a common misconception. Swords are not always evil. Historically, many swords have been used for good rather than evil. Or in some cases, have no alignment at all. Before we get started, the top 10 coolest swords of the year 2022:

10: Goblin Sword

A sword made of discarded goblin parts and a rusty hilt, this sword is sharpened goblin bones embedded into the blade. The goblin bone blade is extremely light but still sharp and deadly enough to take down several wargs or trolls in a row. The sword will be more effective if you are fighting goblins, but non-goblins can use it too if they wish to kill goblins in particular.

9: Samurai Sword

Samurai swords have enjoyed immense popularity around the world though they are Japanese swords. The Samurai sword is one of the most famous swords in history and has been used in movies, books, and even games. It's a graceful weapon that was made to be both short and simple. The blade, which some consider being highly sophisticated for the time it was made, had little need for ornamentation.

8: Maximus

The Maximus is a typical Roman sword, especially good for cutting opponents off at their legs. It also makes a convenient decoy as you can hold your hand over the tip and make your opponent think they're cutting you when they are really cutting themselves on your bait.

7: Razor Blade Katana Sword

The Razor Blade Katana sword is one of the coolest swords of 2022. It has 4 razor blade-like attachments on the side of the blade. They are used for different purposes:

6: Secret Agent Sword

When it comes to cool swords, this is one of the coolest swords out there. It looks like an ordinary sword but it has a button that will make 6 concealed guns pop out of it.

5: Cane Sword

The hacking or tomahawk axe is usually used by miners who are looking to hack anything they can get their hands on while they're working underground.

Hilt and Blade Selection

The blade is one of the most important parts of any sword. If a weapon caught fire and all you could save as your sword, you might be able to salvage it by cutting off the blade. Unfortunately, many fantasy swords are not imbued with magical properties like they once were; some have metal or stone blades that can't be moved or removed. 

If you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, it may be time to perform a ritualistic burial ceremony with your sword. Picking out a blade for your favorite sword is an important decision, but most people forget about the hilt and handle. You'll need a solid handle so your hand doesn't cramp up during battle, although you may have to sacrifice some comfort for improved grip or control. 

When picking out a hilt, look for the grip and crossguard first; the pommel should be last since it can easily be changed later if something doesn't appeal to you. If you have no preference for style, go with a simple and elegant design.

Self-Defense Qualities!

Swords are the quintessential self defense weapons as well. Not only are they powerful, but they also have a long tradition of being used to protect others. Believe it or not, the first swords date all the way back to prehistoric times! Since then, swords have been used for everything from hunting to warfare. 

Today, however, these coolest swords are mainly sold as self-defense weapons. With that in mind, here are a few things you should know before buying a sword for protection!

There are so many benefits to using cosplay swords as your costume and as your weapon of choice rather than guns or knives. These advantages that prohibit you from using guns or knives as your defensive weapon include them not being seen as socially acceptable or safe in public, plus legal restrictions on firearms, and no licensing required for purchasing these weapons.
