Long Description

The blade of this heavy, wieldy sword runs straight for the first five feet beyond the hilt, razor-sharp on the striking edge, and the reinforced spine has been inlaid with enamel to match the <wrap> hilt. Continuing along the blade for a further two and a half feet, the rear edge curves abruptly inwards and the blade narrows to less than an inch wide before flaring out to form a six-inch spike trailing from the chisel tip. The layered, folded steel of the blade forms an intricate pattern of <pattern>.

All custom-made weapons from Wan Bending Reed have the message, "It is by the command of <player> that I was made."

Appraises As

The bending reed zanbato is about nine feet long and about six inches wide. It is made of steel and could be used as a weapon of type heavy-sword. It is in excellent condition.


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.


Custom zanbatos

Weapons from Wan Bending Reed will perform better in the hands of the player they were made for.

With the wizard's spell Gryntard's Feathery Reliever, this sword may be made to weigh 3 and 7/9 for a limited time.
