alright for light practice, or as scrap blade for any practicing blacksmiths. only-half tang, pommel is glued in, and handle is hollow plastic tube
So, although I love this weapon I feel it only deserves three stars because of all of its imperfections. First off, the tip is uneven. Not a big problem, also the grinding of the blade wasn't straight. The pommel was off center. And as I believe someone else said the wrapping on the handle is coming off a little bit. However, with that being said I still absolutely love this sword. It has a perfect weight and just looks great.
It looks pretty cool, but don't expect to get any use out of it for very long. The welding on the tang is terrible and will snap off easily. Other than that, It's fun to hold and wear on your hip and look like a badass.
I just received my sword and am very pleased. It is clean, straight, solid, and paper-cutting sharp. This will be a prized display piece to my Norsk heritage.
Just got this sword in the mail today. snow caused cancellations to delivery in my area so I got it in 5 days instead of 3. for the price the sword is excellent. the scabard and faux leather leaves something to be desired, but I can replace it with real leather gripping on my own. for the price it would make a great perchace for anyone. I read a few reviews that had said it was not bladed, but out of the box it could cut a sheet of paper. all in all I was very happy for the money.
Decent sword, a little unbalanced, so be mindful of that. BTW I think the leather straps that come on the sheath are not so much meant to attach to your belt, but are a "friÃ°bÃ¶nd (peace strap), straps to prevent the sword from being drawn in anger in places where its use was prohibited" (cited from this page http://www.hurstwic.org/history/articles/manufacturing/text/viking_sword.htm)
I bought six of these for groomsmen gifts. The blades are strait and appear rather sturdy. But the leather is cheap, and peeling of the scabbard right out the box. A little gorilla glue will tightin everything down, but it is worth mentioning. The order was delivered 2 day after being placed, very timely!
very cool sword. very durable. very strong. cuts right through wood very easily. great buy
I ordered this on monday and asked for it by thursday before 3 and i got it right on time! the sword is nice, good and heavy just how i like my swords. but there were spots on the blade that look like they are from bad heat tempering, and there is a hole in the pomel where the locking bolt for the tang is, i dint really like that cause it ruins the look a bit. but other wise a good sword anyways
its a great sword and is rather sturdy so its interesting to swing but i had a slight annoyence with the resin or whatever yellow stuff came on the blade i cant seem to find anything to get rid of it
