In primitive cultures, short swords are scoffed at as little more than knives. However, in the Hyborian cultures such as Aquilonia or Nemedia, where shield walls and cavalry charges have become a reality of combat, short swords are prized for their ability to thrust and stab in spaces where no longsword could ever be wielded.
Because they are smaller and weigh less than other weapons, short swords are also faster to use and consume less stamina than their larger counterparts.
The distinction between a dagger and a shortsword is blurry at best. The topic has been of much speculation among the smiths of Ahkbitan for many, many years - often discussed over tankards of ale in backwater taverns.
