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>.
