I wasn't able to find the flaw that cause dit to be a scratch and dent. I haven't used this as much as my two handed swords from Ronin, but it is a fantastic deal if you are looking for this style of Viking sword.
The thick appleseed profile spring tempered satin finished blade is on par with the most expensive you can by in finish and function. Choice of steel used is an excellent balance between toughness and hardness. Handle length is perfect so as not to bite into your palm. Guard and pommel are my favorite shape of all of my viking reproductions, the weight and thickness is where it should be. I'll probably engrave some scrollwork when i have time to personalize it. Had it a year, swing it around like a berserker and the cotton wrap is still tight. Solid peen on the pommel end is nicely flush sanded. Matt Jensons utube destruction vid of this weapon prove it's more than battle readiness and sturdy design. Chape and throat on the wrapped wood scabbard seem to be an alloy, but i like it because i don't have to worry abt it rusting, it wont dent and it lightens it up. Thank you Chris and the Ronin staff for another excellent piece to my collection. This one's a keeper and those are hard to find nowadays at any price. Extremely satisfied.
Quite acceptable for the cost. The leather belt etc would have to be replaced to use it but the blade is impressive and authentic design. I'm typically not fond of double edged blades so this new to me but I am impressed with the quality of the blade.
