[QUOTE=Roland_M]Sweet spot and center of percussion are terms from Baseball. I have serious doubts, that we can use such terms for describing swords. Because the specification is quite different.
At least a Baseball bat is no static device.


Hi Roland,
Centre of Percussion is a well known term when applied to swords. Many Victorian military swords are marked as such with a C and P clearly visible on the spine. I in fact have a Wilkinson Cavalry Officers sword, manufacture date 1877, with such markings.
Regards,
Norman.
