Straight up fight.

 

Arena style fighting area.

 

Standard equipment(though Black Knight has no steed in this fight), with no time to prep.

 

 

Who wins?

Way back in the Defenders-Avengers war, Swordsman was shown to be a better (ahem) swordsman than Valkerye, and kept her on the defensive despite her vastly superior strength. 

 

While I seriously doubt that was possible (the woman ban bench something like 50 tons, IIRC) it suggests a level of skill past anything Black Knight has ever shown.

 

On the other hand, the Ebony Blade has been shown to cut through steel like butter, and even sliced Terminus out of his sapce armor at one point. 

 

Then again, Valkerye was using the Ebony Blade when she fought the Swordsmen and didn't cut his sword in two. Either there's something special about Swordsman's blade that we haven't been told, or he was parrying so well he's keeping the cutting edge from hitting his sword directly, or it's a case of the rule of cool.

 

I'm leaning to Swordsman on this. He seems to have a serious skill edge, enough to offset the Knight's superior equipment.

Well, to be fair, Black Knight(dane whitman) is not exactly without skill himself.

 

While Jacques is probably more skilled in pure swordsmanship, Black Knight is a skilled enough fighter, to hold his own against Cap and Wolverine in unarmed combat.

In answer to Dinsdale's question about Swordsman's blade it was modified by the Mandarin a long time ago.

 

I'd give it to the Swordsman he actualy managed to take on the whole Avengers and did a decent job of it, it wasn't till he reformed that he suddenly became a bumbling fool.
