THe Nodachis isone of the famoud Japanese longswords, designed for disabling opposing cavalry, and eventually reved simply for it's insanely long reach in the hands of a Master Swordsman. This sword is essentially a long Katana, with a curved blade, a rounded tsuba, and a pommel. The handle is wrapped in leather for an excellent grip and superb control.
The Nodachi is made from a durable closed cell foam and coated in latex. The core is a flexible fiberglass rod capped with Kevlar to prevent punch-through.
