What is the largest sword?

The largest sword in the world is a replica of King Arthur’s Excalibur, and was created by Stan Lee. Stan Lee, who has been working as an armorer for nearly 30 years, started making replicas of medieval weaponry about 12 years ago. He made his first Excalibur replica at age 59. This feat would have taken him about 1500 hours to complete. His newest design, which he began work on this past September after completing another project with Marvel Comics, took 2000 hours to make and cost $60k USD (including materials). Alongside swords like Thor’s hammer Mjolnir or Wolverine’s claws; Stan hopes that his replica will help make Excalibur a household name. 

The replica is made of steel, aluminum alloy and fiberglass. It weighs 110 pounds (50 kilograms) and measures eight feet long (2.4 meters). The sword is sharp enough to cut through a large watermelon with one swing, but it will not actually cut the food because the cross-guard keeps it from making contact.

Stan Lee’s replica of King Arthur’s Excalibur is the largest sword in the world, as verified by Guinness World Records. Stan started work on it this past September and finished it in February. He used a mold to create two halves of the blade. After attaching those halves together, he welded them to a steel pole and cut, ground and polished the blade to its final shape. Stan then gave the sword a rippled texture, which he says took him about three days of work. The wooden grip is covered with leather and has stainless steel plates attached to each side for aesthetic reasons.
