This is the only official Lady Vivamus, endorsed by the Heinlein Prize Trust, in a limited edition of 100 swords, based on the sword described in the Robert Heinlein classic, Glory Road. Similar to a military or fencing sabre and suitable for both thrust and heavy cutting, the slightly curved, hollow-ground blade comes to a rapier-like point, and is sharp 10'' along the back edge.

The sword, designed by Jody Samson, is double hollow ground from high carbon steel. It is etched on both sides with the Latin motto ''dum vivimus vivamus'' -''’while we live, let us live!'' The bell guard of the hilt is hand-hammered and the metal backplate/pommel is cast steel crafted by Lars Hansen. Leather lines the interior of the bell guard and the wood grip is wrapped in black rayskin interlaced with braided silver wire. The white diamond patch of rayskin is visible on a single side.
