BCI - Legendary Swords - Vorpal SwordBe the first one to write a review
SOLD OUT AND NO LONGER AVAILABLE
From the Legendary Swords Project - 5160 Spring Steel fantasy blade based on the historical Oakeshott XVIIIc Longsword design. Designed by SBG member Joren Soreno. Last chance offer, final clearance sale.
Made to defend against an unstoppable killing machine, the legendary Jhir'Kai, the Vorpal sword was hand forged from Elven Quicksteel over 500 years ago by its current bearer, the Elven Ranger Erin Galad (aka, Lad the Elf). The only blade that can cut 'anything', it is the only weapon the terrifying Jhir'kai fears, for every time it faces off against Lad, the Jhir'Kai is terribly wounded or even 'killed' (though 10 years later, it will spontaneously reform on the spot it was slain).
The actual blade is based on a historical Oakeshott XVIIIc - a rather triangular design with a wide base that tapers evenly to a deadly piercing tip. The designer was inspired by Dragon Killing blades from fantasy that seemed to suggest that the type XVIIIc would be an excellent Longsword to use against scaled and armored monsters, to both cut and thrust them into oblivion.
The 35" hand forged 5160 Spring Steel blade is hollow ground and spring tempered for maximum strength in the thrust and speed for the cut, weighing just 2 and 1/2 pounds. The handle is wood core with brass fittings and wrapped with blue and gold leather with a cord imprint design. Includes a free blue leather lined wood core scabbard.
While it is a fantasy piece it closely resembles and is based on historical European fighting swords - and as such should be handled with due caution - THIS IS NOT A TOY..
BLADE CULTURE INTERNATIONAL
As BCI is a traditional sword forge, they do not mass produce their blades - so the time between restock can be many months. As these swords are in very limited supply and priced well below usual industry markups, it is highly recommended that if you want to secure one and they are in stock, you order as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
