This is our Red Finian Short Sword. This sword is full tang, and a real winner. Made from one piece of heavy flank 440 stainless steel. The blade is mostly black with a silver edge, with blood stamps.  The handle is wrapped with faux leather.  The sword is 28" with an exposed blade of 20"  Comes in a heavy made nylon sheath that hangs from the belt.

Full tang swords hold up well.  There are no pressure points from pins that would weaken the structure.   A short sword can go where a larger sword cannot go.   In Antiquity, the most common form of weapon was the "short" sword, as seen in large use by the Romans as the Gladius. It is logical that cavalry used longer swords, such as the Roman Spatha, giving them the necessary reach in combat. Short swords were ideal for close-ranked formations with big shields. If you've got a shorter weapon, you're going to want to close the distance and turn it into a dogfight. If you've got a longer weapon, you want to keep your opponent at a distance and probably use your footwork to stay out of his range. Short swords can come in very handy.
