Default Re: Oakeshott Typology Broadswords

I was puzzled by the blunt-tipped broadswords when I first ran into GURPS, but I vaguely recalled hearing Celtic swords described that way, so I assumed that it was down to something in Caesarís Gallic Wars or suchlike. Okay, so it may originally have come from archaeology. Whatever; game designers do sometimes suffer from too-narrow reference pools.

Iíve never had a character I designed use a blunt-tipped broadsword, though.
