If you actually read what I wrote, my point isn't that kensai don't have the same strength and weapon bonuses, since they obviously do.
Hickory: You continually bring up bonuses from Strength and weapons, when a Kensai get the same bonuses. You obviously have never ran a Kensai, and as such don't know what you're talking about.
My point is that strength and weapon bonuses that any warrior class gets are high enough to make the small to hit and damage bonuses you get as a kensai more or less insignificant.
When you're fighting an enemy with 0 AC, and your plain fighter already has a modified THAC 0 of 1 or less, the bonus to hit of a kensai is useless. And that happens a lot after the start of BG 2.
And from having Chloe in my party, I know kensai just aren't very good. Not that I couldn't tell that just from reading the class description.
