Of My Elemental Blade Series, this is the Elemental Blade of Ice. (There will be no elemental blade of water)
The Blade is an Ice-Covered metal spear shaped head Connected by an extend-able chain and made steady by an extremely powerful beam of water which also allows the blade to shoot out at incredible speed. The Chain locks in place once the blade reaches 15 feet. Push the Red button below the hilt to retract the chain and the blade forcibly comes back to the hilt and stops with the return of the beam of water.
This is a One-handed light weight Sword primarily for Stabbing. For Slashing, simply use magic to freeze the Beam of water. It then turns to ice and hardens on the blade keeping it in place. If You don't have Magic, you're probably better off not using an elemental blade in the first place.
