The New
Transparent Aluminum Sword
Mark II*

only slightly-

Be the first to Amaze your friends with this Astounding state-of-the-art breakthrough weapons system - The New Transparent Aluminum Sword, Mark II!

You and your closest (but hopefully at a safe distance) friends will marvel at the exquisite workmanship, the fine detail, the sharper-than-a-razor-sharp edge.

The obvious quality of this piece cannot be overshadowed by any other sword at any price!

Though a common material in the Star Trek Universe, this technologically advanced material has never before been utilized in the swordmaking industry (for reasons which were not immediately apparent to us, though unfortunately have since become crystal-clear) - until now!

Just read these moving testimonials:

"...I received my New Transparent Aluminum Sword, Mark II today, thank you very much. Now, I am afraid to open the box. Which end is which?"
-- Just Plain Scared in Omaha

"...Once I finally figured out where the handle was, I could barely bring myself to put my New Transparent Aluminum Sword, Mark II down (mostly out of sheer terror). Now that I have, I can't find it. Any ideas?"
-- Still Nervously Lookin' in Florida

"...I love my New Transparent Aluminum Sword, Mark II. I have to admit that I have never seen anything like it. (Or even it, for that matter.) But, will it cut through concrete like a katana?"
-- Highlander Fanboy

"...Finally, a sword purchase that will not be hard to hide from my wife!"
-- Henpecked Hoosier

"...I just couldn't wait to handle my New Transparent Aluminum Sword, Mark II. The doctors say that all one-hundred and fifty-eight stitches will come out next week and that they do amazing things with prosthetics these days."
-- Newly A. Lefty, ICU Bed 5, Canoga Park Community Hospital

"...I used to have a dog. A really nice dog. Now, thanks to Albion and my New Transparent Aluminum Sword, Mark II, I need a new dog."
-- Lonely in Connecticutt

Note the fine craftsmanship clearly apparent in this detailed photo

We wanted this sword to be an homage to those splendid examples of the ancient swordmaker's art, but in a new space-age material that literally defies description. A weapon that is broad and bold, virtually undetectable (even by the user), with profoundly understated elegance in shapes, lines and volumes.

The heft of the sword is managed by an effective use of nonlinear distal taper and a deep and well defined fuller (you will have to take our word on this). This results in a lively and responsive feel that invites you to strike with the sword - as long, of course, as it is grasped by the correct end.

The pommel of this sword is of type J: a deep wheel pommel with concave bevels (not that it really matters in this case). It is crowned by a high, but completely invisible, rivet block. The cross is a version of style 2: a straight type of octagonal section that swells at the ends and in the middle (again, you will have to take our word on this. We do not recommend touching the
The New Transparent Aluminum Sword, Mark II to verify this description, due to the overwhelming risk of severe permanent bodily injury).

The outer third of the blade curves gradually to a sharp point. This gives a visual balance (at least it would, if you could see it) to the broad base of the blade and also helps in establishing sweet handling characteristics (at least in theory: we have been too afraid to handle it much ourselves).

If you think it looks amazing in photos - you should see the real thing!
