  1. The SRD only gives a means to determine costs and weights of weapons for Large and Small versions based on the Medium weapons. Any other supplied values are the author's best determination.

A nodachi has reach. You can strike opponents 10 feet away with it, but you can’t use it against an adjacent foe.

A nodachi is a special and exotic type of two-handed sword, prized for its effectiveness and lethality. Despite its slender and curved design, it can be wielded by any warrior trained in melee combat, though only someone who specializes in its use can truly manage its unwieldly length. Its cost, however, makes it impractical for most soldiers, and thus only the wealthy, such as those of noble birth, can acquire it.
