 Thanks for the comment, I actually practice Kendo so yes I know what a shinai is and I have 4 of them.  I'm just trying to make something for fun trying out pixel art.  I am by all mean suck at drawing, so there isn't much detail.  Thanks for the comment though.

Have you ever used a shinai? It's several pieces of bamboo tied together at various points. It kindof bulges out in the center of the "blade" part and snaps back together on impact, grabing some skin. It reminds me, at least, of a closed umbrella. Also, unless you're using some model I have never seen, the handle has plenty of room for both hands and then some.

More or less, it's a sword full of gentle curves that you really shouldn't pixel unless you're going quite big -- to keep it acurate anyway.
Sorry if I'm harsh, but I'm very particular about real(istic) swords. If you were doing some crazy weapon like Zabuza's, I couldn't complain.
