Behold a most impressive 1:1 limited edition replica of Gattsu’s enormous zweihander: Dragon Slayer. The model great sword is 215cm long, and 40cm wide at the widest point, weighing in at 4kg, due to a lightweight fibreglass reinforced plastic construction, though as you can see the finish is a rather realistic emulation of dark, tempered steel. It cost ¥58,000, though the owner is too modest to say so.
Even as a great fan of Berserk and Kentaro Miura, I think I’d be at a loss as to what to do with such an enormous thing… sure to look impressive wherever he displays it. He actually has another smaller replica too.
I can’t help but harbour some curiosity as to how much this would weigh if made from steel… a lot is my guess. Perhaps it has a hollow core?
