I own many pens and use them. I own no swords and even if I did I wouldn't have any use for it. Therefore Pen > Sword.

Sword with pen in handle  - come prepared

Or just sellotape a biro to the end of a sword,  then you cant lose

Sounds like the next stupid final fantasy weapon, they already went with a gunblade,  a penblade would seem like the next logical step.

I was thinking more along the lines of after you defeat the main boss, the pen pops out of the blade and you proced to draw a little moustache or a cock on his face.

Pen > Sword. I could use my pen to draw millions of swords!

Pen beats the sword.

Especially if the pen has neuro-toxins in it, that makes it even more powerful!

 If you have a sword, and another person with a sword sees you, they may feel threatened, and since they can't slice the sword in half, they'll slice you in half. If they see you with a pen they probably won't feel threatened, therefore they won't slice anything in half, and even if they do feel threatened, they can just slice the pen in half. Pen wins.

You cannot decapitate anyone with a pen.

Gunblades are awesome! Keyblades, on the other hand, are rather suckish.

The pen is without doubt mightier. I have used a pen to create a sword. I have never seen somebody use a sword to create anything.

No, but I'm pretty sure a sixty inch claymore would be slightly more effective

Yes, the pen is mightier than the sword, because with the pen you can order a bunch of dudes to take out the guy with the sword.

Hasn't anyone seen The Dark Knight? The pencil is more awesome than both the pen, and the sword.

I think if I came across a dude with a sword in a dark alley I too would rather be carrying a sword then a pen. Dude can KILL me with a sword, what can I do with a pen?
Write him an angry letter? I don't think that's going to fly with the sword wielding madman.

I mean I guess I could attempt to stab em with the pen like Arnie does to the dude in Running Man, but with the other guy having a sword I wouldn't like my odds.

I think I'd rather be the dude with the sword.
