It won't dull your blades much, and you'll have an idea of their cutting power. I could almost behead a hog with one strike with my old dopplehander. A dead hog, of course.

A good and thin metal string or lancet will cut meat far better than any hand and a half sword... Does not mean they are good weapons.
