Now, right now I have him using a custom variant of a Boker A-F combat knife. Blade length about 8-9 inches, decent weight blade width slightly under that of a KA-BAR. This is a perfect all-rounder, buuuuut....Something abotu that just doesn't feel right, I'm just not sure if it could take someone's head off. What do you guys think?
It's theoretically possible to do with a standard A-F knife, tried it on a ballistics gel torso. Wasn't clean though, and (yes, my character has enhanced strength) I'm picturing a clean sweep of the blade to take off the head.
do you reckon the blade as-is is feasible? If no, any suggestions? I like the dagger silhouette, so I'd like to keep that design, and it's supposed to be carried across the back of the waist, so nothing with a blade more than 8-9 inches.
StephenT (stormwreath) has just given me my answer, my hero will now be carrying a Gurkha Kukri, and I can work in a backstory for that as well and make it a personal weapon too.
Thank you for all the answers
