Man here we go again. *sigh* I didn't read any post besides the last two and I care not to, but until we all see Shanks fight with a sword himself none of us can be sure that he uses one. Yea he has a sword around his belt but seriously that means jack. He probably uses it on weak opponents or something, but let me say one thing if he does use a sword then he would have the title of greatest swordsman, cause we all know(atleast the ones that pay attention) that he has beaten Mihawk maybe even several times, or if not beaten then has come to a draw against him. But I'm seriously tired of hearing ppl stating that Shanks uses a sword and there's no way they're wrong, we'll know once we see him fight.
