The Double Dragon Evolution Fantasy Sword from General Edge carries an unusual secret, but it’s the sword’s intricate design that really draws the eye.
This display sword is actually two blades in one. The main sword is 33-1/2 inches long overall and beautifully designed. The high carbon double-edged stainless steel blade has a sculpted shape with a central fullered blood groove and an ornamental ricasso forward of the hilt. In combat swords, the ricasso provided an extra handhold for faster action in close fighting, and also parried an enemy’s strike. The Double Dragon embellishes that portion of the sword with laser-etching and decorative barbs. None of the edges of this sword are truly sharp, but the detailed blades and barbs are finely shaped and dangerous even if they’re not honed for true cutting.
This fantasy sword’s grip and cross-guard of cast metal show a dragon scale pattern with an antiqued finish. The scales of the grip provide a solid handhold, not just artwork. Wings of the blade guard are high carbon stainless steel. Two dragon heads form the cast metal pommel of the sword, and the spike at the base is actually the hand grip of a small dagger in the shape of a miniature sword. The dagger is actually useful even though it’s only letter-opener size and quality, and may spend more time on the desk than sheathed in the Dragon Sword.
The Double Dragon sword comes with mounting hardware and a hardwood display plaque.
