Araluen Sword

A sword is a weapon from The Brotherband Chronicles, but it also exists in real life. It is one of the few weapons which is only used for fighting and can't be used as a tool. During his time in Nihon-Ja, Horace had to substitute his Araluen sword for a Katana when he lost his normal sword. A friend of his had a replica made of his sword that was much harder and was made by the same techniques used by the rangers. Horace now has one of the hardest swords in Araluen. 

Appearance

A sword basically exists out of a short, strong piece of wood known as the hilt with a large iron or steel blade on it.
