All she wants for Christmas is to crush her enemies, see them driven before her, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

My eight-year-old daughter has asked Santa for a sword for Christmas. Please help me find the right one.

The ideal sword would be sturdy, but not too sturdy; my daughter is a whirlwind of destruction, and I'd like to survive to see the new year, but I also don't want to get her something that will fall apart after a day or two of play.
An additional wrinkle to the request is that any sword I would preferably not be made of foam. She's a compulsive picker and will whittle any foam-based object down to a nub faster than you can say, "pile of foam all over the carpet."
Super-extra-bonus: A sword-and-shield combo.
