A Swiftcut foil was a foil—a type of sword—that was used by the Nagai, a warfaring species whose members favored the use of bladed weapons in combat. Along with Tehk'la blades and longswords, Swiftcut foils were employed in a number of fighting exercises that were daily customs in Nagai society. These exercises were both a form of meditation and a sign of social status; success in them could allow the victor to ascend societal ranks.
Behind the scenes
Swiftcut foils received a single mention in The University of Sanbra Guide to Intelligent Life: The Marvel Series, an article that appeared in the first issue of the Star Wars Gamer magazine. The article was written by Rich Handley and Joe Bongiorno, and the issue was released in September 2000.
