and the weapon thing: it still is nowadays. when I got my rifle, we were told to take it with us to bed, especially during bush days. the rifle was to be kept in the sleeping bag. remember the boot camp scenes from Full Metal Jacket?

A round handle would work for a multi-sided weapon like a mace. Single-direction effectiveness like from a sword (or even a tennis racquet) need the user to know which way it is facing. They have a shaped handle to give tactile feedback on whether you are holding it to best effect. I suggest a small redesign on the handle. And maybe a loop at the end for swinging. It works for Thor.

Secondly: anyone else get the impression Cap wanted to ask something entirely differently? o_O

Thirdly: it actually was common practice for new soldiers to literally sleep with their weapon, to get used to it as Cap said: it becomes so much a part of them that not having it is unnatural

Come to think of it, why not both? In fact, with Urtica, it’s the most likely option.

The final encounter with Kojiro illustrates this flexibility.

Please to be noting how said it’s “not as top-heavy as you think”? Wasn’t saying it wasn’t heavy, just not as heavy as most would imagine it (kinda like how so many believe a Claymore was basically a 50 pound steal bar with no edge, because the weight is what did the damage :rolleyes: ), plus, a properly constructed hammer has a ‘sweet spot’ where it easily balances, and someone like the Captain would know where to find it quickly, even with an unfamiliar weapon (and knowing her, she would have taken the time to examine it and study it before mounting it on the wall)

Oh, and as for the swing and ‘over balancing’, most fighters use that momentum to spin themselves around for either another attack or ease of recovery, rather than trying to stop a heavy swing from leaving one open with a counter strike
