At under six pounds, this broadsword 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.) But don't let the weight fool you - this is a full length, no jokes broadsword and it's even longer than many at 43" total with a 33" blade.
The handle is a high-grip, high quality rubber that will last for years while giving you great control of the weapon. The hilt and guard are 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 mirror polished stainless steel that must be seen to be believed. Simple but elegant in design, this sword will look great strapped to your waist or hanging on your wall. Includes wood mounting backplate and mounting hardware.
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.
