Decent, given the price, but pitiful in many respects...The Good:1: It looks cool, given its remarkable similarity to another sword on this site: http://www.trueswords.com/dungeon-guardian-fantasy-broad-sword-scabbard-p-4653.html it's almost like the company recycled the design or something...2: It's about as cheap as you can get a functional medieval weapon.3: It fits tightly into the scabbard, so is relatively safe to carry around even without a peace tie.4: It's very sturdy, and has a firm grip for an all-metal handle.The Bad:1: The chains on the scabbard are unforgivably fragile and may break just by walking around with it on your belt.2: The handle is ridiculously short, and I have somewhat small hands for a grown man, so don't take that statement lightly.3: The blade is not straight in orientation with the hilt4: The steel is very brittleThe Ugly:1: You can see the seams where the hilt was welded together2: You can see the screws holding this thing together from the same distance at which you can make out the detail on the yellow emblems3: The double bevel is not straight down the length of the blade.4: You can easily notice the word "China" on one side of the blade.5: For some reason, the blade smells like vapor rub. I think this is due to the chemicals the probably used to stiffen the leather in the scabbard, but I don't know.6: The extremely recessed opening on the scabbard makes it hard to sheathe without bringing it right up to your face to see.7: Like the "Dungeon Guardian" sword I referenced in this review, the cutting edge is extremely blunt and hard to sharpen, but the tip is sharp enough to stick an armadillo, so it's too dangerous for playing, but not dangerous enough for box cutting8: IT'S A DAGGER, NOT A SWORD! This website has a really bad tendency for naming its products for something much bigger than what the actual product is, and this "Short Sword" is no exception.All things considered, you can get much better daggers on this site or others for just a little bit more money, but if you're on a very limited budget and want something superficially attractive for a fancy dress party, this is almost worth the price.
Smaller than I expected but beautifully crafted and expertly sharpened. A magnificent collector's piece.
LOOKS REALLY COOL ABOUT AS LONG AS MY FOREARM
I ordered this sword and it took roughly a week to be delivered. It is MUCH smaller than I was expecting (mainly because I didn't take the time to read that is was only 22" overall) it is also not as wide as I would have liked to see and you could see all the screws that held the handle together. The blade was not sharp upon delivery and took a while to sharpen it...Now that I have the negative things out of the way, here is the positve: From arms length, the detail is very nice in the handle. The blade has a very nice polished look to it, and the sheath has a nice appearance to it. All in all, its a good sword but not a 5. You get what you pay for and for $15.99, it's a great deal.
