    Can a Bagwell Hell's Belle be considered a sword of sorts? Are some swords sharpened on one side while others sharpened on both? Are sords more legal to own/keep in one's home then a dagger or dirk?

    It's a very large knife -- but one man's large knife is another man's short sword. I provide a working definition here:

    Yes, there are both double-edged and single-edged swords.

    That depends on where you live and what the laws might be. Some areas have length laws, while others do not. Some areas have laws that specifically address double-edged knives (dirks and daggers as interpreted by law enforcement) and some do not.
