The Aldori dueling sword (pronounced AL-door-ee)[1] is a 3- to 3½-foot-long sword with a slightly curved blade.[2][3] Although first developed by weaponsmiths in Iobaria,[4] 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.[2]

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.[3][5]
