I agree
All of the Katana and Wakizashi at https://stararmy.com/wiki/doku.php?id=corp:tamahagane_company:products need updated to DRv3
They used the old "PS" hand-to-hand system, with the exception of the PA blade, which used DRv2 ADR.

Proposed updates as follows, after discussion with @Nashoba :
  • Practice Blades and Mini-Neko Blades: Tier 0
  • 1 PS & 2PS Blades (most Wakizashis) = Tier 1 (Light Anti-Personnel)
  • 3 PS Blades (Katanas and Advanced Wakizashi) = Tier 2 (Medium Anti-Personnel)
  • 2 ADR Blade (PA Version) = Tier 4 (Light Anti-Armor)

Sounds okay, I guess? I'm not sure melee weapons should even have damage ratings because they entirely depend on the skill and strength of the user.

Yeah, but so many do. Nash told me that's why there was that old PS system that was tangent to DRv1 and DRv2 that specifically concerned melee.

Let me know when you've finished going through these and I'll give it a look, @Yuuki. The proposed numbers seem fine to me.

This is a DR update, I don't make changes until after the approval. Wes had us stop doing full WiP articles for changing the numebrs.
