Surely it made of mithril or adamantium or some such?
What I think of is the final movie where he does that one-armed pull-up while holding Tifa, which seems very improbable with those stick-arms – but eh, he's Mako-enhanced and whatnot, and he's probably working in a zone where gravity is funny, or something.
There's a mythril sword in FF7 as well, so presumably the Buster Sword isn't made out of the same material. Adamant seems to be gold-coloured in FF7 (and most other FF games).
I'm not sure whether you'd count it as canon, but the FF7: Last Order anime suggests that two normal people can't lift the Buster Sword at all; it's only SOLDIER members who can do it.
When I first saw it, the scene where he does a one-armed pull up with Tifa surprised me too! Although it makes sense if he can spin the Buster Sword around. By that point, Cloud's strength stat is pretty high too.
