Long Description

This is a monstrous double-edged broad sword, forged from steel and polished to a high sheen. The blade is five feet long, tapering to a sharp point at one end, while fitting snugly into the intricately carved hilt at the other. The large guard is both practical and beautiful; its sole purpose to stop blows reaching the bearer's hands, but the subtle brass trimming is purely ornamental. A small imprint of a crescent moon is stamped into the blade just above the guard, perhaps the craftsman's mark. Blue cloth is wound tightly around the hilt, providing a secure grip and it seems best wielded with two hands.

The double-edged broad swords purchased at Burleigh & Stronginthearm's weapon boutique in Ankh-Morpork will also be engraved with a serial number.
