At last, a steel sword in the Legend of Zelda style that’s built solidly enough to believe in. This heavy blade would satisfy Link, the playable main character in the story.
This 37-1/2-inch-long sword’s blade comes beveled and polished but unsharpened. Made in a ricasso pattern, the blade has an unsharpened section of blade just forward of the guard to block weapons and serve as an emergency hand grip for truly close combat. The 27-inch blade is more a flat pointed bar of high carbon 440 stainless steel than a professionally shaped sword blade, but the simple look of the blade matches the graphics of the original game. This popular classic originated during days of lower pixel counts and blocky visuals, so the angular cast metal decorations on bladeguard and grip actually show more detail than many generations of the game did. Etched into the base of the blade, you’ll find the Tri-Force symbol of the game as well.
Cast metal pommel and guard don’t match the strength of the steel in the blade, so this isn’t a good sword for practice swings. Made for display, it’s a light duty weapon in spite of all the weight. Some details are painted metal rather than plated, so handle the sword carefully to avoid scratches. The manufacturer includes a lacquered wooden display plaque 11-1/4 inches by 8-1/2 inches for secure wall mounting. The plaque includes all the mounting hardware you’ll need to display this massive gaming weapon proudly.
