List the comparative advantages and disadvantages of the sword and saber. Why did the saber replace the sword almost everywhere over time? Where and when did it start?
The saber requires great skill of a blacksmith and knowledge of the properties of metals (quenching and tempering). The sword is easier to make, but it is heavy, it is difficult for them to fence for a long time. The saber is light, and it does not cut, but cuts (when pulled) – it is impossible to do this with a sword. The Turks were the first to learn to forge such sabers in the 6th century.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
