This sword is designed for fast styles, but can be used for stage level combat. The total length is 36 inches and the dry, un-fueled weight is ~14oz. This sword uses three layers of kevlar sleeving, which gives about a 3 minute burn time with white gas.
Since this sword does not have a guard, we strongly recommend you ware protective gloves when using the sword.
The latest version has a Pom grip attached at the base, so you can easily find the end of the grip after tosses. That Pom is NOT meant as a pivot point to swing the sword with or a place to apply any weight / pressure too. It is there for aesthetic reasons and to help with hand placement only. Photo will hopefully be updated soon.
