The Aldori dueling sword (pronounced AL-door-ee)1 is a 3- to 3½-foot-long sword with a slightly curved blade.234 Although first developed by weaponsmiths in Iobaria,5 it is the signature weapon of the Aldori swordlords, a fighting school from the region of Rostland in the nation of Brevoy. It is only sharpened on the outside edge. A wielder of the Aldori dueling sword relies more on speed than strength to injure their opponents.23

Unlike many precision blades, an Aldori dueling sword can also be effectively wielded with two hands, and those trained in its use suffer no penalties to its accuracy.46
