I blade made of the type of folded steel used in katanas is going to break, never bend. I would probably choose one or the other image, a curve and a strait blade require different forging processes and if these are mass produced would then need completely separate production lines. If you would like both I recommend submitting them each as a separate "curved" and "straight" sword.

In this case white lightning does not really match the black blade of the straight sword so I would probably go with the curved. Mind you the curve actually provides enormous advantages over the straith. While the straight remains better for stabbing.

Cortosis, or any other lightsaber resistant material, is almost 100% certain to be denied on any mass-produced item. Lightsaber resistant materials are all extremely rare.

Otherwise good work so far.

Well if you want it to be a standard weapon it would need to be mass produced, and so use a more typical material like durasteel. If you want to keep the cortosis weave minor or unique, but would no longer be the "standard melee weapon" you were looking for.

Technically the rules have been suspended for the moment. As long as you don't start flooding, I do not think they will mind.

One last thing, weight is actually a little heavy. I'd reduce it to about 1-1.2 kg. Otherwise I cannot personally see anything wrong with them as they stand. @[member="Black Dove"]
