At under four pounds, this sword is easy to carry for anyone, and the light weight also makes it incredibly fun to swing around (not that we have ever tried this ourselves or recommend it highly.)
The sword is 33.5" total with a 25.5" blade. The handle is plastic for light weight and longevity. The guard is metal not plastic or resin; make sure you look for this in any sword that will be used for anything other than display. The blade itself is stainless steel. The chain from the pommel to the guard is a classy design feature that you'll notice right away.
It's a myth that carbon steel blades are superior to stainless steel blades. Stainless steel actually costs more to produce and is shinier naturally, along with being highly resistant to rust. This makes stainless steel a much better material for display or costume swords. The advantage of carbon steel is that it will bend instead of snapping, and is therefore safer to use in combat demonstrations. Stainless steel and carbon steel both have their advantages - be sure to choose the one that suits the true purpose of your weapon.
