Deck out your little Warrior or Paladin with the latest weapon from the forge.
Due to some concerns about the jewel dislodging from the pommel and providing a choking hazard, I have added another pommel (pommel2) that does away with the jewel.
I also have an extra rattle that I will be raffling off at the end of April (2016): you can enter by sending an email to [email protected], put “sword rattle” as the subject.
The totally awesome sword rattle has been picked up by a number of blogs and websites. The most notable being:

Print the peas first (i find that using 2 groups of peas makes the best rattle), and when the blade is about half way printed, drop the peas in the open end; this ensures that the peas are forever contained in the rattle.
