A Sword is a long, melee-type weapon that normally consists of a short handle, also known as a 'hilt', attached to a long blade. Often times, they are a single-handed weapon, though some can be used as a dual-wielded one. Swords come in many shapes, sizes, and variations, with some having longer or shorter blades, curved hilts or blades, or even multiple blades on one hilt (see Dualswords, for instance).
