Physical Description

Durza's sword consists of a short, slender blade that meets an ornate guard that is stylised like a bird. The smooth blade is made from aluminium and has dull edges with a sharp point. The cross-guard is made from cast metal and features the face of a bird on either side of the blade, and includes claw-like terminals. The grip is made of cast resin with a rough texture finish similar to wood, and connects to a cast metal mid-grip collar and cast metal pommel in the form of four sharp bird talons.

Included with this sword is a leather scabbard with a 'biscuit foam' lining. The throat of the scabbard is decorated with a metal casing with chains on either end to attach to a belt.
