comment The use and historical authenticity of a 9 hook broadsword
I suspect it is very similar except for the addition of hooks which I imagine can be used to cut or catch things as you pull back. It's a move I've seen people in the system I practice but with a regular 9-ring broadsword. I haven't seen this variation on this weapon before though.
