Greetings I am not a regular to these forums but, I have read all of the wheel of time series and enjoy it greatly. I am curious if any of you would be so kind as to provide me with the Names or a guide to relative equivalents to several weapons listed in the books. Of course very little will be exactly as Mr. Jordan described it however there are a few that I would greatly enjoy researching and possibly eventually crafting a few myself.
The weapons in Question are:
Ashandarei - Japanese naginata
Aiel Spears (there are many different types of spears from around the world I am looking for a specific close comparison)- suggested to be a pilum
Aiel belt knife
Rand's Sword - Modified Kat or Katana (Any artists wanna take a stab at this one?)
I have a general Idea of some of these however some confirmation or opinions on what most closely suits these weapons would be greatly helpful in my research.
