Like the seductive purple flower after which it's named, Black Legion's "Nightshade" Steampunk Sword and Throwing Knife Set dazzles the eye and captivates the imagination with its spellbinding beauty. But also like its poisonous, atropine-laced namesake, the Nightshade Set's enticing allure belies a deadly secret - bitter cutting potency and savage appointments. Forged from rugged stainless steel and enhanced with a cool, weather-beaten stonewashed finish, the 19" sword blade boasts a slender, stinging profile and an edge that's carefully honed to razor sharp. A whirlwind of golden vines and floral patterns shroud the blade, which infuse the Nightshade Sword with undeniable steampunk style, along with chic gear-shaped cutouts, brass studs and a host of other smart fantasy trappings. No mere follower, the Nightshade Sword boldly adds its own distinctive twists to the classic steampunk aesthetic - a cord-wrapped faux ray skin handle that evokes the iconic samurai katana; a severe, acutely angled pommel and more. While perfect for display, the Nightshade Sword is built real-world tough - a single, solid piece of cold, hard steel that's more than capable of tackling a wide range of demanding jobs. The two included throwing knives echo the sword with their beguiling steampunk style, rock-solid one-piece steel construction and savage piercing power. Each is equipped with a 5" double edged spear point blade, stonewashed and decorated to match its larger counterpart. Distinctive gear cogs stud the the throwers' classic finger ring pommels, and at 8" overall, both are efficient at inflicting serious damage from a distance. Housed in the included nylon shoulder sheath, the Nightshade Sword and Thrower Set is easy to transport - in the field, to steampunk conventions or simply to a friend's house to show off these remarkable bladed gems. But never forget - as stunning as Black Legion's "Nightshade" Steampunk Sword and Throwing Knife Set is, like the "deadly nightshade" plant from which it draws its moniker, the Nightshade sword and throwers are serious weapons with serious slashing and stinging power.
