Looks cool but Id like historically-faithful weapondry I really hate fanciful weapons that end up looking like lollipops. I'm thinking about stupid-looking manga that has done great harm to the sword&sorcery imaginarium. Not the case in your art of course... Well, I ramble... Nice work!
Well, I think you are blaming manga a little bit too much. There's nothing in that sword that can't be seen in real world swords. The world is big, and not always follow the european patern of straight blades and longswords. Check this for some historical blades: [link]
