I'm reminded of an anecdote I heard once about how duelists in Europe ostensibly kept arming themselves with longer and longer rapiers to gain the advantage of reach over their opponents, to the point that laws had to be passed limiting the length of sword you were allowed to wear on your belt, because people were being tripped in the streets whenever these dueliest turned around suddenly.
