    was tall with...

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-She was tall with long, black hair.

    2-He was healthy with strong arms.

    3-He was tall with a sword.

    4-He was fearless with a sword.

    I think '1' and '2' work. '3' is supposed to mean he was tall and had a sword, but I don't think it works.

    '4' means 'he was fearless when he had a sword' or 'he was never afraid something might go wrong when he was handling a sword'.

    Am I correct?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    I agree that 3 doesn't work.
