Mine has a 34" blade.

I'll be picking up Corporal some time this summer and will rate a sword. I was gonna go to Cold Steel and get my NCO sword from them. Y'all will be the first to know.

That Wakefield blade arrived at my office yesterday.
Soon as I sharpen it a bit I will be ready to go all medieval on some Zombies.

Thanks Red Star

I was looking at this, thinking, "Yeah, cool sword... but completely useless against a zombie. I'm glad you said that. It made me think of some kid in a fencing costume poking the undead with his pig-sticker and thinking, "Red Star lied to me!"

Hah, that's a funny image right there! :lol:

The original purpose for these pic posts was to convey what would be practical or not for zombie combat so to speak. Finding items for practical applications isn't always so easy. I'm sure all of us have purchased or obtained one or more items that are pretty much useless. A fine example would be the majority of the katana wielders out there...

Got this puppy not too long ago, had it sharpened as well- damn thing bit me twice while unpacking and cleaning it!

It's double edged blade is just over 26 inches- technically a short sword but it is hefty and MEAN. I wish I had gotten that Wakefield sword sharpened when I got it. Hey Bob, how is that sword these days? Just wondering if you had ever gotten around to sharpening it up. ;)

Dang that is a cool looking blade Red

No sadly I never got around to sharpening it.
I really just need to make the time to do so.
