Zoro Swords

Among the numerous bladed weapons in different cultures, the sword is considered as one of the most impressive and efficient weapons for almost every individual around. In fiction, these equipment are given more importance compared to other bladed weapons and the swordsmen who wield these are portrayed as some of the best, coolest, as well as the most important among all the weapon-wielding warriors around. Because of this, there are numerous sword-wielding characters in fiction and these include the masked swordsman named Don Diego de la Vega or more commonly known as Zorro, and the pirate hunter named Roronoa Zoro from the anime One Piece.


Zorro is Spanish for fox and this is the secret persona of a man named Don Diego de la Vega, a character made by the writer Johnston Mc Culley in the year 1919. He was known as a Californian nobleman who lived in Los Angeles between the years 1821 and 1846 during the period of the Mexican rule; however, there are a few movie adaptations of Zorro where the character’s story was set during the much earlier rule of the Spaniards. Zorro’s most favored weapon is the Rapier which he utilizes to leave his trademark, a large “Z” cut that is made with three quick and precise strokes. Aside from the rapier, he also makes use of the bullwhip yet in his debut, Zorro made use of a pistol.


The Zoro blade or the Rapier is also called the Espada Ropera which is a term for a specific kind of sharp, slender, and pointed sword that is mainly used for thrusting. With its design and features, the Zoro blade is not only made for thrusting but it can also be utilized for slashing and cutting attacks; these assaults with the rapier have been recorded in a couple of historical treatises such as Capo Ferro’s Gran Simulacro in the year 1610. Furthermore, the weapon was also utilized in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in Early Modern Europe.

The word “rapier” refers to a sword with a long blade that features a protective hilt for protecting the user’s hand while wielding the weapon. Some of the historical versions of the rapier feature a broad blade that is fixed on a common rapier hilt; so while its blade may be broad and sturdy enough to cut through targets at some degree, the rapier is still primarily designed to execute nimble and quick thrusting attacks. Additionally, the way the rapier was created allows the user to perform fast attacks, and with its long reach, the weapon was suited for civilian combats during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Since military-styled thrusting and cutting weapons have also continued to evolve, the rapier also continued to develop and improve to meet the needs of civilian combat and decorum.  By 1715, the rapier was almost completely replaced by a much lighter and smaller weapon and this was utilized by a lot of people throughout most of Europe; yet despite this, the rapier was still used by a few individuals who still preferred this weapon.

Roronoa Zoro (One Piece)

Roronoa Zoro is known as one of the most powerful master swordsmen in the anime since he is able to utilize three different swords with varying styles of attacks; from the melee-type of weapons all the way to long range and sword-like weapons. He can even utilize the Flying Slash Attack which is a high-level sword style that makes use of the air pressure when a sword swings; the pressure is then utilized to execute strong attacks against enemies. Zoro can also perfectly time his sword assaults to deflect or counter every powerful attack executed, such as Kaku’s Rankyaku.

Zoro is definitely a strong and powerful fighter who features outstanding potential; he is also considered as one of the best fighters who is part of the Straw Hat Pirates. Since his personality is quite stern, others often assume that he is the captain of the Straw Hats especially after witnessing his skills and prowess in battle. Zoro also has a constant rivalry with Sanji, a fellow Straw Hat, but when the two attack together, they are indeed an almost unstoppable force which is exhibited in their battle against the Groggy Monsters.

Even without the Zoro swords, Zoro can still fight due to his immense and monstrous strength, plus he is also able to easily lift and toss an entire building. He was even strong enough to readily divert a punch from Oars before the time skip occurred which developed his skills to literally pump his arms, enlarging it with pure muscles.

Below are the different types of Zoro swords that he utilized in the anime:


During his journey, Roronoa Zoro had been in different situations where he had to adapt his skills for various reasons; and in addition to his regular fighting style, he had several other methods of combat that formed a much greater portion of his Santoryu fighting skills. His sword, the Ittoryu, literally means the “One Sword Style” and with this weapon, Zoro can easily perform attacks with the use of a single sword.


Nitoryu is one of the swords and blade styles that the character has developed over the course of his adventures; with this weapon, Zoro executes a variety of attacks with two Zoro swords that can both be lethal and strong against his opponents. The Nitoryu was also his original fighting style when Zoro started to learn how to wield a sword; this was before practicing Santoryu and accepting Kuina’s sword.


Santoryu is a specific style of sword fighting where the wielder makes use of three katanas: one in each hand while the other sword is held in the wielder’s mouth. There are numerous techniques for this kind of sword style and these include the high-speed attacks, the compressed air projectile attack, and the direct hit attacks. Some of the names of Zoro’s attacks are puns because of how some Japanese words are put together; when the words are pronounced as one, these can come off as completely different words and often, these refer to cuisines such as sushi and the like.

Bobo Clown

Depending on how a person views clowns, the story of Bobo the Clown may come off as comedic and hilarious, or something extremely horrifying. Before the zombie apocalypse even began, Bobo was just the regular clown who made ends work by entertaining and making people laugh in birthday parties, events, school functions, and at times, in Bar Mitzvah. Being a clown, the pay was not really that good but since it was an honest and clean way of living and earning, Bobo continued to work hard and did everything to keep his acts fun, interesting, funny, and enjoyable.

At some point, Bobo learned that vampires, pirates, and zombies were becoming quite a thing with the children, so he came up with an idea of a new act: an act that would feature him, Bobo the Clown, fighting off vampires and zombies with the use of his arsenal of gags and tricks. Here, he would battle these fiends and become victorious, proving to everyone watching that clowns are very much better than the vampires or zombies. To complete his act, Bobo contacted his longtime clown friends: Rocky, an ex-clown turned boxer and Geoff who would play as the vampire. The three friends rehearsed until the day of their first act together which would be unfortunate since this would be Bobo’s last.

During the birthday party, Bobo noticed Rocky acting strangely: the man was erratic, aggressive, and was barely following what they practiced. So to improvise the act, Bobo decided that he would give his friend the classic club soda gag; however, Rocky instead let out a deep and creepy growl, then leaped and tackled Bobo to the ground. The clown let out terrified screams when Rocky started sinking his teeth into Bobo’s flesh, doing so a couple of times before leaping off the clown and dashing off into the distance. Today, the clown can still be seen and heard prowling the streets, searching for an audience and victims after his gruesome transformation. Bobo is quite an easy to see bleeding zombie target and is generally good for shooting practice.

Throwing Knives Set

A throwing knife is a tool that is specifically designed and given a certain weight to allow its user to throw effectively; these are also known as a distinct type of tool compared to the regular knives around. Throwing knives have been utilized by numerous cultures all over the world and because of this, different tactical styles have been developed for accurately and effectively throwing these knives. Furthermore, throwing knives are also utilized for sports and various types of activities.

Western Tradition

Throwing knives are usually made using a single piece of steel or any type of similar material; it is also made without handles unlike the regular types of knives that are present. These types of knives usually feature two sections and these include the blade which is, of course, the sharpened portion of the tool and its grip which is a non-sharpened portion. Although these knives do not feature any handle, its grip allows the user to safely handle these while it also works as the weight and balance of the blade.

There are also two known types of throwing knives and these include the following:

Balanced Knife

The balanced knife is created specifically to have the point of gravity fixed right at the center of the knife.

Unbalanced Knife

When it comes to this type of throwing knife, the center of gravity does not match or balance with its center; if the handle is heavier, the loop of both the blade and the handle in the air (since it is tossed) will have a varying diameter which will make the direction less predictable. Additionally, when throwing these types of knives, the lighter end is gripped to provide a more adequate and proper throw.

Aside from these, there are also knives that have a given weight which can readily be adjustable from the blade’s length. With that, these types of knives can both function as an unbalanced or balanced knife depending on where the weight of the knife is positioned. Of course, most users prefer the balanced knives over the unbalanced knives and they share two reasons for this: one is that the balanced knives can easily be thrown from the knife’s handle or even from its blade; plus, it is also easier to shift from one balanced knife to another.

When it comes to the weight and the throwing speed of these knives, both determine the impact and power of the tool. If the knives are lighter, these can easily be thrown but can eventually fail to penetrate the target point; this, in turn, may cause an unwanted bounce back.

Basic Types of Throwing Knives

Before purchasing any throwing knives set, it is always vital to check out the different types of throwing knives that are available; such tools that are present in the market include the shuriken and the tomahawk – a few of the specific types of throwing devices that a person can learn more about when they advance in the field of throwing knives. Here are the three basic kinds of throwing knives:

Blade-Heavy Throwing Knife (unbalanced)

This kind of throwing knife features more weight on the blade than its handle, so with that, the heavier portion of the knife is the part that should be thrown first; basically, the handle of this type of weapon should be gripped when throwing. Moreover, the blade-heavy throwing knives are also considered best for beginners since these are much easier to use when learning how to throw via the hammer method.

Handle-Heavy Throwing Knife (unbalanced)

These kinds of throwing knives have most of its weight right at the handle so one would throw the knife ensuring that the handle goes first. Because of this, the user should hold the knife along the end of its blade, this can be quite tricky since beginners may have a difficult time getting used to this.

Balanced Throwing Knife

All balanced knives have the center of its gravity located right at the middle portion of the knife, making it possible for the user to throw the tool from the handle or the blade, depending on their preference. Rotations on these types of throwing knives are more predictable compared to the previously mentioned ones yet a few users have a difficult time utilizing these the first time. However, the balanced throwing knives still provide more flexibility and ease when throwing.

Weight and Length

Good throwing knives should not be too light since it will not hit very far when thrown; throwing light knives are basically difficult to control and at times, it may also be shifted by the wind while in the air. The rule of thumb is that these knives should be around 300 grams for beginners, and the length should be longer since these spin slower and are much easier to get used to. The usual lengths available for throwing knives range from six to sixteen inches. Keep in mind that shorter knives spin much faster and its learning curve is trickier.


Remember that professional throwing knives should not have any type of handle since these can cause issues to the knife itself: one is that it adds friction and it also adds more weight to the tool.


Ergonomics refers to the science of a product’s design; every manufacturer takes extra care and measures to ensure that every throwing knife that they create functions adequately and appropriately. Knives that are ergonomically correct should have a handle that offers an excellent grip combined with comfort; as for its design, it should be made thoroughly to be safe enough for throwing.

Spiked Mace

Among the oldest and most developed weapons of all times is the mace; the simplicity of its make and how it was used makes it an extremely appealing, as well as an efficient weapon for any soldier from the medieval times. The mace is a blunt weapon, a virge or club that utilizes a heavy yet powerful head on the end of its handle to deliver strong blows that are efficient during battle. These weapons are usually made up of a heavy and strong metal or wooden shaft that is usually reinforced with metal that features a head made out of copper, stone, bronze, iron, and even steel.

The head of a mace used for military purposes is commonly shaped with knobs or flanges that allow the user to better penetrate the plate armor of an enemy; not only that but the length and measurement of these weapons can vary depending on how it was created. Maces of foot soldiers were shorter and measured about two or three feet, while the maces of cavalrymen were considered longer and better for attacks delivered when one was on horseback. As for double-handed maces, these are much larger compared to the previously mentioned ones.

Although these were considerably famous weapons in the past, maces are rarely utilized in this day and age yet a large group of governing bodies such as the U.S. Congress and the British House of Commons, institutions, as well as universities utilize ceremonial maces and continue to use these as a badge of authority; additionally, these maces are also commonly paraded in parliamentary, academic, or even civic processions and rituals.

The efficiency of this weapon is undeniably great since it provides the wielder with outstanding swinging force that could inflict a lot of damage on an opponent. This is the reason why the medieval mace had a heavy end to allow its user to generate additional force compared to a sword.

Since armor, weapons, and other metal working skills have advanced over the centuries, the medieval mace also developed in numerous ingenious ways by making use of blades or spikes to better pierce or even slice through armor during battle. From then, the spiked mace was created and these are weapons that are very economical and easy to make. It was believed that the maces were employed by clergies during warfare to avoid bloodshed (sine effusione sanguinis). The evidence of this report is considered inadequate and is based primarily on the description of Bishop Odo of Bayeux who utilized a club-like mace during the Battle of Hastings in the Bayeux Tapestry. Additionally, it is said that Bishop Odo’s brother, Duke William, also carries a similar weapon and it is suggested that the mace may have also been a symbol of authority during that period. Due to this, other bishops were said to wield the arms of a knight just like Archbishop Turpin who wields both a sword and a spear called the Almace, and Bishop Adhemar who is said to have battled as a knight during a certain expedition that Bishop Odo has also joined.

The spikes of the morning star distinguish this from the mace which instead, features small knobs or flanges; the morning star was utilized by both the cavalry and infantry yet the horsemen’s weapons usually had shorter shafts. In history, the spiked mace eventually transformed into a weapon made entirely of metal but the morning star retained its appearance by having a strong wooden shaft.

These were the most common pirate swords utilized as naval weapon during the Age of Sail, and these pirate swords were considered as the most durable and efficient tools for battle especially when all of these pirates’ guns have been discharged. The pirate cutlass was characterized by being much shorter compared to a cavalry saber, plus it also has a durable and sturdier arched blade which was definitely effective for battling in close or confined areas on or below the ship’s deck.

The pirate cutlass is a favorite sword among pirates and it is said that Caribbean buccaneers were the ones responsible for the creation of this weapon. However, the successive utilization of the pirate cutlass was thoroughly documented in a variety of modern sources such as the pirate crews of William Kidd, Stede Bonnet, and William Fry. Pirates make use of the weapon not only for combat but also for intimidation; they would simply grip the hilts of the weapon and the crew would simply surrender in an instant. At times, these pirates would also make use of these weapons to beat up captives and force them into compliance. Furthermore, the sailors of this period usually traveled the sea with just a few pieces of tools and combat equipment but they did make use of one specific and popular bladed weapon during the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries and this was definitely the cutlass. This well-defined, short sword definitely became a favorite weapon utilized in both the Navy as well as in pirate ships due to its high-quality, versatility, and strength.

Due to its excellence and versatility, the cutlass was also often utilized as an agricultural tool since it was a weapon used in a lot of areas that had a lot of sugarcanes and rain forests like Central America and the Caribbean – eventually becoming the famous machete of those in the Caribbean.


The broadsword was one of the most common and popular weapon among Vikings since these swords were particularly heavy yet long enough for adequate reach. Although the reach was good, pirates did not really favor these weapons since these were not very efficient on board, yet the pirate swords of this type were utilized at sea by naval soldiers and buccaneers.

The only reason why some pirates make use of these swords is due to the strong and deadly blows that it can execute in just a single swing.
