Another example, the kusarigama [Editor's note: Chain-sickle] would function a lot better with a piano wire than a chain but that would be silly because it is an archaic weapon. These weapons are windows to the past, so we should make that weaponry as strong as possible but only according to its own terms.
So, consequently, it would be silly today improve the quality of the swords by using better quality iron ore and modern technology? If yes, you are saying i.e. all modern American sword smiths miss the point even if their product have much practical better quality?
