Have you perfected the art of the blade?
Did you know that swords are some of the oldest and most widely used weapons in the history of mankind? These bladed weapons have been used in warfare, duels and even sometimes for hunting! Swords historically evolved from daggers and knives in the early Bronze Age, when metalworking allowed for the creation of longer blades that would not bend or break easily. Swords have been used from all corners of the world; from Europe and Africa to Asia and North America. This quiz will not only test your general knowledge about swords, but also your knowledge of a wide range of fictional swords as well!
Swords come in all shapes and sizes. Some feature straight and thin blades; like the longsword or the claymore. While others feature curved blades; like the katana and the scimitar. There are even some, like the whip-like urumi, that stretch the boundaries of what can even be classified as a sword! The iconic nature of swords throughout history has led to them being featured in works of fiction; from books and plays to video games and movies. So sharpen your blades and your mind and get ready to test your sword arm against this quiz!
There can be only one!
