Hello,
I got this sword a few years ago and for some time I've wondered about the short length. From hilt to tip the blade is 25.5" And the overall length is 32.5".Opinions sought, is it a child's sword or was it used by a very short guy? Overall its in excellent condition, the blade is mint.

Hello Karl.S, if the hilt has the -normal- dimensions it is just for a short guy. Imho it is much too long for a salesman smple and I have already seen several Luft swords obviously for several short guys.
