A quick glance at Fantasy Master’s “Dragon Lance” Short Sword is all it takes to fall in love with this one-of-a-kind, fierce-looking beauty. Every feature shines brightly above a dim sea of run-of-the-mill, cliché-design fantasy blades; the Dragon Lance is the short fantasy sword, reinvented. Exploring the intricate details and subtle recesses of her striking black steel frame is like embarking on a magical quest. The journey begins with the black, uniquely curled, skeletonized handle. Its no-frills, bare-bones form is a refreshing change from the gaudy ornamentation and shiny polished sculpture typical of most “fantasy” knives and swords. Except for the portions wrapped in cord for a comfortable grip, the handle is no more than a steel, skeletonized frame, and it’s simply perfect! This minimalist approach highlights the beauty in the Dragon Lance’s raw, industrial design. Journeying onward, the handle curves abruptly 180 degrees, forming a crook – great for bolstering your grip, and it just plain looks cool too! As with all knives and swords, however, the heart of the beast is the blade. The Dragon Lance’s 5 1/2" black stainless steel trailing point blade is fully-functional and potent, razor-sharp and battle-ready. A false-edged, display-only fantasy sword, the Dragon Lance is not. But make no mistake – she’s a standout beauty in any blade collection. A black nylon sheath is included, but you’ll barely use it; the Dragon Lance is just too much fun to wield! With our unbeatable prices it’s painless to get two – one to display and one to use. Don’t forget your friends and family! The Fantasy Master Dragon Lance Short Sword makes a terrific, standout gift that everyone will remember for years to come.
