The substance of your weapon does matter. We can barely begin to compare skill to O-sensei, so we have to rely on our natural and artificial weapons. Tell me, what do you think would happen if you struck at someone with a paper sword, and they parried with a Nagasone Kotetsu blade? IMO, until you reach a critical point in your training, you'd either run or die.
