Really solidly built, looks and feels high quality. Love the profile/shape of the blade, exactly as I hoped for. Looks great, quite sharp.
Some tiny, minuscule imperfections in the blade, nothing that bothers me. Really can't stress enough how small the one main blemish I found is, and the other is barely a scuff mark. Both of which could easily buffed or ground out.
Feels a bit heavy. Not clumsy, and while I've never handled any other one handed swords, I can't claim that this one feels specifically nimble or agile.
Biggest con: faux-leather handle wrapping cord is coming off already, on 1st day of ownership, from only a bit of swinging in the air. I planned to re-wrap handle someday anyway, but not great to see so soon.
Overall, I love it. My first real sword, and despite the minor flaws I am impressed and satisfied. Really pleased with the price and very plain finish, perfect for customization.
This product will easily half dead rabbit. Very well made about as good as you cad do in a sword.
This european sword is amazing! It's a bit smaller than I thought, but the balance is superb, feels very alive in hand. Very nicely done, the fuller is centered, and is paper cutting sharp all through the blade. The tip is beautiful. The handguard is quite solid, feels like you could bash a brick with it. The handle is very nicely wrapped with leather, and the pommel is solid and beautiful. It is peened for greater durability. I already cut the carboard box it came in, and it performed admirably, really clean cut and no damage to the blade, wich feels quite sturdy.
The only fault I could find ( actually not me, but people in forums) is that it's not "historically accurate", but I don't care about it, I love this sword. Will buy the other model as soon as I recapitalize.
So, if you want an euro sword that is wicked sharp out of the box, well built, sturdy, gorgeous looking, and handles well, look no further! BEST costumer service as well!!
The sword is of a superb quality and very beautifully designed.
The weight is perfectly balanced from point to pommel and the leather grip gives you a secure and comfortable grip.
You can not go wrong with this sword. It is a must for any serious collector or someone who wants a realistic longsword of unquestionable quality.
