Highly Impractical Sword by ZackF Highly Impractical Sword by ZackF
Note the multiple blades for extra viciousness! When you aren't busy slashing and/or decapitating people you can use those for chopping carrots or something.

Going to see if I can't get this sucker modeled and textured by the end of tomorrow. Criticism welcome.

I've seen more impractical swords. Some of them are downright silly.

mmmh, this sword is evidently of the Falchion(western one-edged chopper) family, a bladed guard is not necessarly stupid but it should be longer to protect the hand properly and be deadly when you punch with it, the rear guard may be used to trap an opponent's weapon but should have a horizontal part to protect the wrist, the serrated part is redundant and decreases the cutting power, it should stay on the non-edged side so it can work like a combat knife when you stab, and it should have a bit more weight on the point, to increase the force of the slash.

however not bad art.

Great for chopping turnips AND smiting your enemies! o3o
A valuable item to have when Ned Flanders comes over! (if you watch simpsons you'll get the joke!)

I like how it looks quite heavy, but not unrealistically so.

You're right, it does look a bit like the newest Prince of Persia. Mostly because of the strong outlines, I think. Thanks. :)
