Too bad you couldn't arrange to video tape the process. That would be sweet, How to Forge A Dragon Slayer...tonight on the Discovery Channel.
Forest Wraith said:Obviously, it comes close more in terms of shape and width rather then the actual size of the Dragon Slayer . . . I want it . . .
Forest Wraith said:Guts' Golden Age swords are most analgous to a standard war-sword with a stripped down guard and slightly wider blade. Interestingly enough, swords such as this designed for actual use on the battle-field only weighed in range of 5 to 7 lbs; so having a sword such as that availible actually isn't at all unrealistic.
Dekant said:Well, not quite The Dragon Slayer. HOWEVER I think this looks familiar.
Overall Length: 59.25"
Blade Length: 41.5"
at Base: 3.75"
near Tip: 2.5"
Grip Length: 13.5"
Guard: 6" X 1.25"
Dekant said:If a normal longsword is around 3 pounds, and this one is 8, it's somewhat close in size.
Dekant said:But then Guts was referring to a "normal sword". A big "great sword" wasn't very normal either. I just took it to mean a normal soldier's sword, though yes, I agree, length would play quite a role.
Dekant said:Any guess on Guts' height?
Dekant said:All I was saying was, I don't think Guts was refering to one of the larger-end swords.
Dekant said:He said his sword was 3 times the weight of a "normal sword."
Dekant said:Weight wise, that is a somewhat similar figure.
Dekant said:I was open to the fact that perhaps that they just threw those numbers out in the anime.
Dekant said:I hope you enoyed looking at Maelstrom. Thank you for Guts' height. :)
