I remember, there was one such person, who could not draw his sword, therefore he embraced the enemy with vigour, tumbling like a rice bag, up and over each other, tumbling around, which ended up with him being pinned to the ground. Next he tried to draw his Wakizashi short sword with intent and to stab the enemy from below but it had a huge gold-leafed guard, like a lid of a big pan – stopping him from drawing it. 15 I have another story, another man who was also pinned to the ground had a big knife, as he was a cook and had a knife to chop vegetables and fish.
Actually, he only used it when it was effective and when it was useless, he then gave it to me and took his spear instead. I have never heard of such a ridiculous thing! I wear it on my waist like a sword, but cannot draw it to kill the enemy as it is not a sword but is a musket. Because of this, I thought it was so bad that I was told to carry such a useless thing, even more useless than a stick, but it turned out that I successfully smashed open an enemy’s head thanks to this weapon! Here is my tale.
Of the two ashigaru I mentioned, the one who killed his enemy with the Hazuyari bow bayonet and the other who killed with an arrow, I think the arrow story should get more credit, if talking about which feat is greater. I think this because the first ashigaru had used up all his arrows, which is not a good thing to do as a bowman, even though he got a head. What do you think? I have kept this staff that I am holding now, because it will be useful when we have to carry any two arrow boxes or bring water, as you know.
