Got a new pointy pokey sharp thing

Weighs just under two pounds (.8 kg for metric users), and is just over three feet (.9 m). Steel grade's 1055 carbon and the handle's polyprop with a steel-reinforced guard (I prefer longer and more practical hand guards, i.e. your standard arming sword, but considering the length of this thing, standard fencing techniques aren't as set in stone for how it could be wielded). Overall, pretty solid construction barring the slight buffing groove in the edge near the tip (which is visible in the photo). VERY nice blade on the whole.

I'll assume that's a short sword of some type. Never seen that design before. It also reminds me of a two-handed machete (though there are currently none that I'm aware of  ;D).

It's a modernized version of the Thai Krabi sword.

OH! Interesting. Then you would need 2 of them for dual wielding.

Oh, that's what the gladius is for. It's always nice to have a variance when dual-wielding; it makes it much easier to maneuver and not worry as much about your weapons clanging together.
