A common melee weapon, the sword has returned to common use despite it's limited range, because of the powerful invisible mas-field that extends from the blade. In addition, when the mas-blade's field is switched off, it can go straight through the commonly used mas-shield. Comes in a variety of styles.

This weapon is so difficult to use, and so incredibly difficult to master, that it rarely comes into use. It is a thick bracelet with a long, lightweight line attached to it, and a blade (Like that of a mas-knife) at the end. The blade, of course, projects an invisible mas-field. The mas-dervish is used very little except by specialists, like the Monks of the Order of the Whirling Wind on Zothalon Beta.
Ship's Stock: none, however, 19 soldiers are formally trained in it's use.
