commence Sean Neakums quotation:
> Understanding is a three-edged sword.
Have you ever tried to make a three-edged sword? The only way to do it
while keeping them evenly spaced radially is to make 3 one-edged swords
and then weld them together along their back edges, which is nothing but
trouble. You could always cheat and take a regular two-edged sword and
single edged sword and weld them together, but the resulting
cross-section would be T-shaped.
Of course, actually using a three-edged sword is just as bad. You're
almost completely precluded from performing slashing attacks, limiting
you to stabbing. If you're in the middle of a swordfight you're
going to be doing a lot of parrying, and switching from parrying to
stabbing is much harder from switching from parrying to slicing, making
a three-edged sword ineffective.
And so, in conclusion: Understanding is ineffective.
