Has anyone actually looked at the sword depicted in Vadi?

It's not a sharp or as described in the text. It looks like a blunt trainer! Very interesting.

I shall look tonight. Either way, he says only the last six inches should be sharp, half swording with a razor would not be fun.

It's hard to tell. Lots of the blades look like they have blunt squared ends, eg: Folio 16 recto and verso, but others definitely come to a point. The segno on 15 verso has sharps, and I'd say 19 recto and verso has pointed blades as well.

Just a lazy artist perhaps?
