    That depends on what you are defending against... an unarmed man? Yes. Another knife or sword wielding man? Depends on your skill against theirs. A gun? Never bring a knife (even a very long one) to a gun fight.

    Not a practical weapon these days, rather noticeable as you carry it around.

    Like the other guy said you have a huge advantage against someone whose unarmed, obviously.

    It sure as hell would be harder to take down a guy with a gladius or a katana than someone with a bat, or with their bare hands, lol.

    No. They've just been around for 6000 years because they're stylish.
