Worlds Most Xtreme Kitchen Knife!

Ok, So when did it become OK for your standard everyday kitchen knife to take steroids? Huh? Dunno what I’m taking about? I’m talking about your everyday, iron chef variety kitchen knife. Only on steroids. Or suffering from a severe case of gigantism. Big enough to makes Arnie the Gubernator look like 90lb. weakling. Scary stuff. What? Still not getting it? Well I’ll show you. But don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Our next entry in our premier humongousword saga is yet another fixture from the Bleach aniverse (Yeah, Aniverse. Like Anime Universe? Uh-Huh. I know. It isn’t a real word. Deal Wit it. ; P) And get this: This is the base form of the Zangetsu Bankai Sword I just blogged about. Apparently this sword undergoes a transformation into the lean, mean, black moon slicing machine that is the Zangetsu Bankai. Anyway, Here it is: The Zangetsu Shikai Long Sword – Cutting Moon from the Bleach Anime Series.

OK, now just try and tell me that sword isn’t just an overgrown kitchen knife. Just Try. Ya know, I even think I know where he got it. Hey Ichigo! The Jolly Green Giant wants his Chef knife back. He also says to quit “borrowing” his silverware!!

What is it with these anime characters nowadays that they have to get bigger and bigger swords? Did the monsters get bigger than they were before? Tougher? What? No, really, what? Used to be a well trained ninja could take out a 8 story snake with a Kunai. Now you need a 41″ wannabe cleaver? Bigger is not always better folks! I guess they just don’t make ’em like they used to…

    Wow, I was just looking at this knife of King of Swords last night. It’s an interesting design and now that you mention it, it does look like some sort or super steak knife

    It’s certainly an interesting design. Seems a little over sized for what it’s supposed to be used for, but then again, there are quite a few “over engineered” blades in Anime, so I guess this is par for the course.

    What is interesting is that it has all of the qualities of a great fighting sword, a good curve, a fairly strong sharp point, all of these things would make it a great cutting and thrusting (to a degree) sword. It’s just the blade is ridiculously huge!!

    Hell, what happened to the good old days when a standard sword like the one Dart uses in Legend of Dragoon (his standard sword not the one that comes with his Dragoon Armor) could take out a freaking nine foot fifty ton crystal Golem without even getting scratched? Or the standard hand axe you could pick up in the Prince of Persia Warrior Within for use against undead creatures of sand? Do these People really need to carry around Hades’ paring knife?

    I guess evil has gradually become more and more resistant to smaller swords over the centuries… LOL
