    Realy? A sword.
    Ever seen Raiders of the lost arc?
    Space and weight are things to think on. Not looking like a NINJA.
    This is not a video game and some seriousness is requested.
    I have swords , tomahawks and bowie knives all for display or entertainment and collecting.
    If I had no choice it would be both.
    If I have nothing then what ever is at hand.
    Hammer , spud wrench, rock stick or my belt maybe a roll of pennies.
    If in the NE a snow shovel today.
    Gotta go ......time for pike practice.

    One or more of these are in my pack or will be with me when needed. They are very good tools.

    I would pick the Navy knife and the USAF survival as my EDC. Close at hand anyhow. Plus the jack knife or 2 in my pockets.

    Any body know if they make a knife or sword in .45 ACP? I hope they never get close enough for a knife or sword unless it's in .45 ACP, even better 7.62 x 51. Obviously everyone needs a good knife or 2 or 3, but I agree with Jamal whole heartedly.

    Knives, in my hands, are utility tools. I always carry at least one but they are not for fighting. The same law that applies to knives applies to guns and in my hands the gun is the better tool for defense.

    I have two of the Cold Steel Katana Machetes with sheaths. They are excellent and could be used for defense provided you are not bringing a knife to a gun fight....... or clearing brush. I picked mine up on sale for $20.00 each.
