This is my heaviest blade, the 40lb bastard sword (yes, that is actually what it's called). Notice how the sword is pressing itself deeper into the sheet, a testment to its monstrous weight. It is 4 feet long from the end of the hilt to the tip of the blade. It isn't very sharp with exception of the tip, but considering its weight, it doesn't have to be. This sword is designed to swing with both hands, but I can wield it single-handed.

Here's a somewhat further shot of both swords. You can see part of the katana scabbard too.

Here's an even further shot to give you an idea of how long these swords are.

I also have a set of double kodachis with a blue wrap. These are very low-quality as the blades are somewhat loose. I also have a home-made forged blade with a generic Chinese design. Last year, I sold a heavy Black Merlin sword that was covered in spikes. I'm hoping to buy a really nice high-carbon folded blade within the next few months.
MY MY Anime what a nice BIG sword you have!!!
