The reason is purely the difference in the strength of impact produced.
No matter how you attack, compared to blunt attacks, slashing and thrusting lack in impact.

The moment upon contact where the energy is transmitted from the collision, a blunt weapon that weighs more will produce more.

Blunt weapons can’t slash or stab, in exchange for that disadvantage, as a weapon type it has an attack power on the higher scale.

And if you are able to skillfully make the shock of the impact pierce through, you can deal damage even through a shield.

You can say that this might be the feature of the heavy and tough blunt weapons.

Slashing weapons on the other hand, have their own specialties, cutting, bleeding, and thrusting, they have these powerful effects.
Furthermore, compared to blunt weapons, it is easier to aim for weak spots.

Nana is just stupidly good at aiming for their vitals.
Even though her weapons have a large area of impact, you need to focus the force into a narrow spot to deal max damage to a weak spot.
It’s that hard to aim for the weak spots.

「Recently blunt weapons have increased in popularity you know.
It might be thanks to Sukuna-san」

「If that’s the case it would be nice.
To be honest, I’d like to use various weapons, but this one really feels like it’s made for me.
I’d like to use something like a two-hand club, I haven’t used those in a while」

Seeing Nana hug Kagenui while saying that, both of us had wry smiles.

「Sukuna-san, you once used a two hand club?」

「I used one outside of stream, I broke it in just one day」

「Take a little bit more care will you?」

「The opponent was strong you see… I used Finisher.
It broke that way」

The day Nana used a two-hand club, seems to be the day she fought against Rou.

Receiving a two-hand club with a transforming mechanism and destroying it right away, it is a ridiculous story in a way.
Haruru who makes Nana’s weapons, as a smith she is really considerate.

Though, having something given, broken on the same day.
Even If I was the maker, I would be dumbfounded too.

Also according to memory, Haruru should be a master of forging swords, but being able to refine OverHeavy Metal and forge it.
That means she should have an equivalent mastery level of blunt weapon forging.

It’s also a weird fact that she happily accepted Nana’s request to make an OverHeavy Metal Club.

「Well, if Nana is cornered, she wouldn’t hesitate at all to use a Finisher」

「It’s sort of amazing to get that sort of weapon skill early game.
But still, being able to break a weapon without hesitation is amazing」

「Hmmm….well a weapon is just a weapon.
Even if you lose it, you can just punch」

Rather than a weapon, Nana trusts her body the most, she certainly has that side of hers.

A basic fact in this game, is that you’re stronger with a weapon than unarmed.
There’s a big difference in reach, and you can also use your weapon as a shield.

《Unarmed Combat》 is a skill that somewhat covers that demerit, but even then, without a weapon the demerit is beyond imagination.

「For that case you also have the Unarmed Combat skill right?」

「I only raised its mastery a bit.
That skill has many arts from the beginning, so it is easy to use」

「Yea, from the start all arts are unlocked」

Unarmed Combat is a skill that has ten arts.

Even if you raise the mastery, that part doesn’t change until the end.

Those ten arts unlocked at the beginning, you can freely use them.

During the stream, Nana certainly used some of those arts, among those she used was the Unarmed Combats final combo art《Ten-Point Cherry Blossoms (Toezakura)》

Ever since the game began, no one has been able to unleash a max damage 《Toezakura》.

That means, no one has been able to use the Unarmed Combat skill’s greatest 「Trump Card」.

「For just a bit, If I could raise my strength a bit more then maybe I could-….there was a moment like that.
That’s why I want to level Unarmed Combat」

「hee, so that’s how it was.
There aren’t that many players who fight with Unarmed Combat, so I guess I’ll look forward to that in Sukuna-san’s stream」

「Hmmm, I need to level up more so it might happen sometime in the future.
At least a week I guess」

「If it goes well, won’t your level be high enough on the last day of the event? Well…the main problem is that there won’t be an opponent to use it on.
After all, there are no monsters that can completely endure 《Toezakura》」

The three of us went “aah”….and after sighing we laughed at the same time.

Without any reason, our sighs and laughs happened at the same time.

Having fun talking about weapons and skills.

This is also an enjoyment you get from playing the same game.
