I am a fan of the Harry Potter movies, though I must admit I am several movies behind in the series.

Sword of Godric Gryffindor

Harry Potter - Sword of Godric Gryffindor

This sword has an interesting quality about it. the blade is almost rapier like in appearance, though it appeared to be somewhat smaller and employed a much simpler cross guard. In fact, the overall appearance of the sword could easily pass for an over-sized wand of sorts, if you overlooked the presence of the cross guard.

Nonetheless it is a pretty cool looking sword, though still a bit flashy for my taste. Certainly seems like the kind of elegant sword a wizard would use…
