I agree. Without the adamantium, head leaves body. Iaijitsu masters don't muck around. They go for killing blows. Decapitation is numero uno on the list.

Dang this is close a think Silver has the advantage because of his armor though

Samurai

I think Silver Samurai. The only thing that saves Logan is his adamantium. Without that, Laura gets turned into beef sashimi. wont be easy but Silver Samurai got this.

Silver Samurai for the win IMO.

This is actually not true.Wolverine survived on healing factor not adamantium.He's never actually landed a blow on Wolverine that if you replaced him with Laura it would have killed her.Her whole skeleton may not be covered with adamantium but his isn't either and their nothing stopping her from cutting through his armor like it didn't stop Wolverine from cropping his hand off.In actuality she has the better chance of killing him.You can't even really make a skill case for Silver Samurai because although she doesn't have many displays of fighting skill neither does he and between him and Wolverine he's actually not even close.So you can't even use him to make a case for Silver Samurai in that area.

What's stopping her from beheading him?

Silver Samurai is considerably skilled in one thing, and one thing only... Swordplay.  
 
Standard Iaijitsu training, (Samurai art of swordplay) focus greatly on neck strikes. SS has evidenced this in at least two battles against Wolverine wherein he got the first strike in on the neck... 
 
I think in a weapons battle, the odds are slightly in SS favor in getting that head shot off first as it's part of his principle M.O.  That and the katana is a superior weapon (reach wise, tactically speaking as well) than X-23's far less significant claws.  
 
It would essentially be a battle between a striker and a swordsman. 
 
I vote SS would pull it off as a result. Though it could indeed go either way ...

Sure, the healing factor is a major role in Wolverine defeating Harada, but adamantium and superior skill are also significant factors.

Are we saying that X doesn't?

Superior skill is debatable, seeing as she has no real skill feats that are up to his, but has amble training since conception.  And the adamantium is an advantage for Wolverine because he can block with his wrist and such, where-as it would slice through Laura's.

Anyway i think i'm gonna choose SS for the win.

SS. More range and skill when he has that sword in his hands. If Laura did stab him SS would def get a lethal blow in as well.

No skill feats that are up to his? He doesn't really have any either.

It's funny you would say that because that's how he ended up getting his hand chopped off by Wolverine.

His as in Wolverine.  And yes, Harada does have quite a few skill feats.  Let's take into the account at least twice he's landed a killing move against Wolverine, the numerous compliments Wolverine has given Harada based on his abilities, blocking bullets, owning Baymax, taking on Spider-Man/Black Widow, Spider-Woman, and the New Mutants.

No. Silver Samurai landed a blow across Wolverine's neck that would have decapitated him in their first fight in Uncanny X-Men #173.

Even when training Logan he's shown himself more than able to decapitate;

If they weren't practicing with wooden bokuto's Logan's head would roll without the adamantium.
