There are a people alien to this world - a race of immortals blessed with unspeakable powers.  From their necrotised, battle-scarred remains are formed living weapons.  [Sylak.]

-"The blade on this piece is incredible. Where is it from?"


-"It's an original. I designed it myself. A 'curly' blade like this is often referred to as a 'Kris'. I took it one stage further by removing all the material from the centre - in effect creating an almost twin blade that joins at the tip.   To complicate things further still, I insisted on creating 4 sharp edges (incl. the inner). The base of the blade is also rendered to fuse with the handle grip."

-"Is the blade real?"
-"Forging steel is a vocation, and it is not something that I attempted to do myself on this project. Special effects is all about creating convincing illusions, and that is just what I did here. The blade is wooden (albeit heavily disguised)."

-"Could you make a working prototype?"
-"In fact I have already been approched about this.
There are only a handful of blacksmiths in the world whom I would consider skilled enough to manufacture the blade for me. I have spoken at length with specialists who have years of experience in this kind of work. The answer is: everything I design is manufacturable on commission."
