The sword its self is pretty good... feels like a beast, but balanced well enough. Holding it, you feel all 3.5(ish) pounds, but in the swing, it's easy to control. The finish isn't the best I've seen, but its made to be used any way. Everything else, feels nice and tight and solidly constructed though, and has just about the smallest gab between the blade and cross guard I've ever seen.
The scabbard on the other hand was pretty junk. The sword wouldn't fit in all the way until I "broke it in" by repeatedly stabbing the sword into it pretty aggressively and the "leather" feels pretty cheap. However... it may serve as some good fire woods on a cold night... you never know. With that being said, who really cares about the scabbard? the sword is good enough on its own that it warrants the price, and most western swords I've seen don't even come with a scabbard at all.
All and all, if you want a sword to actually use and not worry too much about scuffing it, or breaking at all, I'd say go a head and pull the trigger. the thing is a blast.
