From their description
From Berserk volume 1 it says:
"It was much too big to be called a sword,
massive, thick, heavy and far too rough.
Indeed, it was like a heap of raw iron."
The huge sword in Berserk, Dragon Slayer has now been released in soft sword type.
Swing this imitation sword to get a simulated experience of the original heap of raw iron.
Take the sword from your back and swing it toward the target, this soft sword Dragon Slayer is made to let you enjoy the experience like a swordsman. Also, its suitable size makes it able to be played inside your house. (size about half of the real one.)
The inside of the sword is made by wood. Therefore the body of the sword will be straight even if you swing the sword. Also, it gives a good feeling when you hold the hilt in your hand and swing it as physical exercise indoor.
1. Do not use it to cut other people. It may hurt.
2. Please confirm that there is no fragile around you when you swing the sword interior.
3. We will not take responsibility if the sword broken when you play it, or any damage caused by your sword.
4. The inside body of this sword is made by wood. Generally it is ok for play, but we think it is better to be careful when you play with it.
5. ***Arm width over 45cm is not able to wear the holster. Please make sure the holster size is available for you before your order.***
