If you take a look at melee competition using edged weapons, it is quite telling to watch swordsmen dueling with spearmen. Even if the swordsman is higher skilled, he has a difficult time overcoming his opponent. There’s good reason those sergeants and lieutenants were armed with these things in 18th century armies. They were devastating in CQB.
