Long Blades vs Short Blades

Wondering how (or if) people are differentiating long blades and short blades in combat?

No. Close combat asset work the same, only the quality of the asset make a difference. But, they use different focus. A person with a short sword focus of quality 1 as the same stats of a person with long sword focus of quality 1. It may make a roleplaying difference for someone trying to hide a knife vs long sword.

Note that the Kinjal has a slight advantage;
As an Asset: The Kindjal can cut through personal shields and can be used in artistic displays of sword use. Many noble Houses engrave the hilts with their House emblem.

Any blade can cut through a shield. Its the speed of the attack that matters.

@Andy-Modiphius wondering if you have any thoughts?
