I know Damascus metal, as anyone who has a basic knowledge of swords does. I practice 14th-16th century European Martial Arts focusing on the German manuscripts, so there's no need to assume I'm an idiot. The obvious arrogance isn't much appreciated.
And you're right. They held the sword at a side angle, but always tried to ensure their opponents blade would hit the back area of theirs, because a Katana can fucking shatter with an edge on strike, and that was something to try and avoid at all costs for obvious reasons.

You always left the sharp end towards you since it would blunt the blade otherwise. Further more parrying is not simply holding your sword in a fixed position. You move it towards the incomming attack aswell. That means that rather than his sword forces your sword into yourself it defleckts the attack and redireckt the attackers force into the ground/air depending on the way of deflekting.
Also katanas was pretty much unique for the japanese making them quite special. True they were no good at blade fighting, but penetrading armor flesh and bone they are far suprior to the western blades.

Man I'm a fencer. I'm quite aware of how to parry a blade. But when it came to Katana's they didn't turn the blade backwards like he said. They shifted it so it was a glancing attack off the SIDE of the blade, where it is NOT sharp. However you don't completely move with the attack; you pivot on a fixed position keeping one foot level and using the other to move.

It's hilarious how wrong you are.
The katana was a slashing weapon, making it the WORST type of weapon to use versus armor. Against plate bludgeoning > Peircing > Slashing

>superior in penetrating armor
Katanas aren't made to penetrate armor but rather cut at the unprotected parts that Japanese armor has because they didn't reinforce the weakpoints with chainmail like europeans did besides Katanas are last defence weapons on a battlefield and are mainly used vs unarmored opponents.

Yeah duh Yoda used it! Silly me...Well, thank you for this new-found knowledge. I've always loved all the movies and have started watching the clone wars the new animated one, and always enjoyed the original clone wars animation too But I've never really read any books or anything...But after reading all these comps I really want to now.

Most of the books are pretty good. Like, really really good. But there are some out there that just absolutely blow. I feel as if I'm the only person who thinks that Skywalkers kids blow. Hard. But I still love Skywalker. So much. He becomes such a fucking badass its not even funny. The way he just grows and becomes the Grand Master of the new order, and then as he keeps training and learning, and protecting the galaxy from the sith.. Facing the clone emperor. Dude, its all worth it. Do it man.
