This sword is solid and feels powerful in the hand alone. The blade comes sharpened and ready for cutting ( I still have not done this months after purchasing) the Hilt is beautifully wrapped and fells comfortable as well as sturdy. The included scabbard is wood wrapped in leather with a simple steel accent at the tip. The sword is secure in the sheath as it does not fall out even when inverted and shaken but releases with little effort when draw. I could not be more statisfied with this sword.
This sword is light and fast. It is very solid and well built. The peen on the crisply detailed fishtail pommel is almost perfectly blended in, with only the faintest trace. The point of balance on mine is 4 1/2", it does not feel blade heavy at all. I am very pleased with this sword!
