Just need to sharpen A little, then, it will cut
Great look! But not sharp at all.
these have some weight to them. they seem solid, but i'm not intending to swing them at anything overly sturdy.. like a tree. the sheaths are nice, with a strip of velcro in the middle. i am not certain if i like that the sheaths are connected together by the straps.. i could cut one end of each strap and sew them together to make single sheaths, if wanted later. i don't know why the did not use a clip mechanism. i got mine on sale so that made them that much better.
THESE ARE DISPLAYS PRIMARILY!!! I bought these swords back when I thought the only important factor in buying a sword was how cool it looked. Being a bit less stupid now, I've decided to write this review to help future sword-swingers like myself. First, look at the metal used to make the blade. Stainless steel, of which these blades are made, is very nice for display swords, as it does not lose its luster. However, it is terrible for actual swords, as it is very soft due to a rather low concentration of carbon. Optimal blades are made of 1060 carbon, or 1045 or 1090 carbon, though 1045 is a bit softer and prone to bending, while 1090 is more rigid and thus more likely to shatter with misuse. Anyway, these blades aren't high carbon, and thus not at all recommended for actual use.Perhaps more importantly, the hilts are of a of very uncomfortable mould, and are made of ABS plastic. While I was able to look past the stinging corners of the grips, the plastic was a fatal flaw for me, as the hilts of both swords snapped in my hands after a few good swings, because ABS plastic is too weak to take the force exerted on it by the tang of the blade when the blade makes contact with anything.These swords are fine display pieces, though there is no included method of display other than the sheaths, which conceal the coolest part of the swords, and get a 4/5. As real swords, they get a 2/5. They don't get a 1/5 because i still use one of them, as enough of its hilt remains that I was able to wrap nylon cord, duct tape, and packaging tape around it to fashion a makeshift hilt that is actually more comfortable than the original; whenever the blade bends, I just bend it back to a (somewhat warped) semblance of its original shape.Cool to hold, cool to show, bad to use, remember to oil them.
Def a must buy im a huge mortal kombat fan def a great addition to my collection
This IS AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am a very advanced mixed martial artist, and have a big collection of many weapons, then I really wanted these swords for many reason, and I got these swords some months ago. These swords are really nice and are great in length and weight, and are also very strong. Although they came very dull, one being about 3/4 of an inch shorter then the other, and a very tiny bit more thinner in width, they are very worthy swords. I suggest training with them dull first, then when you get the feel of them sharpen them to your liking. That's what I did at least, and they came pretty fast in the mail too.
These blades look so cool! It seems like it is going to suck when trying to sharpen them though. I hope my friend likes them!
At first I had a few concerns about this set, but after a phone call, I realized how great of swords these are, I'd recommend them.
Awesome swords. Very intimidating, only issue would be the handles aren't too comfortable. All in all, very good swords.
This thai nagi sword is LEGIT! I already had the combat commander Gladius, and this is twice as awesome! The carbon steel slices through grass mats like butter and you should see what it did to watermelons!
