You ever notice the similarity between samurai swords and elven swords lately? There seems to be some sort of philosophical equality between those two groups. Perhaps because asian swords are more exotic to Westerners, so we naturally project these types of exotic sword onto our exotic imaginary creatures. Do Japanese elves carry swords that look like claymores and arming swords? Do African elves carry Mayan atlatls? Do Eskimo elves carry boomerangs? Will I ever shut up about this?
This katana (or elven sword, as you will) is a solid 34 inches of asian (or elven) whomping power. Its sturdy, comfortable and fabulous to swing. Tear up the LARP field (or the office, or your room, or your proctologist's office, we're not fussy) with the flair and speed that only a fiberglass-cored foam samurai sword can bring.
This sword has a nice subtle curve to it, a squared off tip and a nice long grip for one or two hands. Buy it now and conduct your own philosophical elven/samurai discussions.

100% Cuts of Useful Information
When Strongblade refers to a "Battle Sword
," we are referring to most European medieval swords
with blades longer than 35” or so. These type of swords included hand-and-a-half swords
(sometimes refered to as Bastard Swords
) and the big two-handed swords
. Real battle swords
had blades well in excess of this, and, in fact, a 35" sword was considered a bit skimpy for fighting skirmishes. But for home use and light sparring, a 36" blade is fairly long.
