This nodachi is as straight as a waterfall and as sharp as the north wind. It bears a pattern of <pattern> worked into the folded steel, and the long two-handed hilt has been wrapped in <wrap>. The maker's mark, a single reed gracefully curved by an unfelt wind, is engraved on the simple steel disc of the tsuba behind the blade.
All custom-made weapons from Wan Bending Reed have the message, "It is by the command of <player> that I was made."
The bending reed nodachi is about five feet long and three inches wide. It is made of steel and could be used as a weapon of type heavy-sword.
May be ordered from Wan Bending Reed in the Samurai dojo, in northeastern Bes Pelargic.
The player must have at least a 300 bonus in the appropriate weapon skill, as well as a 200 unstatted bonus in people.culture.agatean, before Wan Bending Reed will consider him or her worthy to wield one of his weapons.
Weapons from Wan Bending Reed will perform better in the hands of the player they were made for.
