It can be whatever you heart desires Lith. If you want to deflect, it can be curved, and if you want to block it can be straight. However, I am not sure how watertight the straight/block:Curved/deflect method is. I did some training with swords, and didn't have problems deflecting with a straight sword or blocking with a curved one. Mind you, we were using wooden swords. Go to Comment

4/5

We need more swords. I have three swords in the back burner, though I must admit they are hard to make without delving into the cliches. You managed it though. Go to Comment

I really like this sword's power. Very original man!

Like others mentioned, the visual of someone getting cut up and then wandering off, bleeding to death but painfree, is priceless! Go to Comment

This is a lot like Gideon's Mercy, with the snake on the hilt and similar powers.  These swords could be fun items and you put some cultural weight behind them which is very nice. 



Some Edits



 



IN POST “the Duke though the man to have given him a playful jab to the midsection before he moved on the market.”



 



I think “though” should be “thought”



 



IN POST “Gnoccio was such a boisterous, and often touching of others type of person.”



Slightly awkward transition here, so we must assume that Duke had this opinion of the Gnoccio.  May I suggest moving the order of information around like this



"The Duke was acquainted with Gnoccio and knew him to be a boisterous person and gregarious person; often roughly touching or slapping others in fun.  As Gnoccio departed the Duke thought the man to have given him a playful jab to the midsection the man, until the Duke staggered and was shocked to find his silk doublet soaked with blood, and a 14-inch gash starting just above his groin and stopping just short of his ribs.



Or change it all together so that we are clearer about the nature of the Duke and Gnoccio’s exchange.



IN POST “so sure was he of his own style, he though his foe incompetent until he himself stumbled.”



I think so should be capitalized and though should be thought. Also I think it would be help to put some transition in here to note that you are no longer talking about Tekene in general, but are now discussing the specific duel in which he died.



 



iN POST “He would then dispatch those he had contract to kill with a quick thrust into the heart, leaving the to simply die whilst still dreaming”



I think there should be an a before contract or “those he had been contracted to kill”



 



But again, nice item, useful and fun, the cultural weight behind it (weapon lore) makes the post much more intereting than the item alone.

Interesting, and really only good for ambushes. Causing your opponent to flinch is pretty important in combat, since they might not be able counter as effectively.

I seriously love this sword. But what is the blades shape? Strait or curved? That is a serious problem for me, strait blades block, curved blades deflect. overall though, I'm lovin the story behind this blade. And original as anything I've ever seen. Love the magic/innate properties too. Go to Comment

Very nice blade which has been in my favourites since I first read the sub. I can definitely see surgeon commissioning something like this. Go to Comment

Definitely an assassin's friend, although I would expect it to be smaller if it was originally used for vivisection. Good backstory.

Down with the Detect Evil spells! Where is Evil is truly afoot, they should be detecting it left and right.
