This is an excellent sword, does not come sharp. Made of High Carbon Teel, which is SO much better than stainless for a sword ( less brittle ).
Don't by if you want to use it I snapped the blade off after three hits but it's good decoration
Quality, Weight and Balance is amazing at this price, just that the handle can add more cushion as it a little uncomfortable swing due to the weight and thin side of the handle. Also will be better if seller will sharpen it more
The only thing I didnt like about this sword is it came unsharpened but overall its EXELLENT!! even the sheath is a good quality for my tastes and my sword has exellent balance and feels...right in my hand like it was MADE for me. Recommend for a good battlesword or costume as well as a stage attire piece for plays.
This sword is extremely solid, well built, and well balanced. The blade came unsharpened but that's a quick fix. Don't expect much from the scabbard your really just paying for a good quality sword for an unbeatable price! This is a great addition to any collection and great to customize too!
I sent the order for this sword on the 13th and i already have it! True swords, you are speedy! I am using this blade in a historical presentation on vikings in a couple of weeks so i needed it quick, but I wasn't expecting it this fast! As soon as I opened the package I set upon the cardboard box. A thrust would push the blade all the way through leaving only six inches on my side of the box. As all the other reviews have said, the fake-leather handle is a piece of junk, but who really cares when it only cost $40! You will be getting my repeat business!
This came in rather quickly. The sword has a full tang (rat tailed) blade, brass pommel and cross guard like it was described. The blade itself is pretty wavy, and it came in with a flat edge. It is durable, but I don't want to beat it up anymore, since it isn't heat treated. The scabbard is plain junk, fake leather, brass throat that comes of easily, and it doesn't keep the sword sheathed securely.Overall, decent purchase. I'd recommend this for a sword customization project.
Good Stuff:This sucker is a nice big and solid blade. Looks pretty much period to me, with a fuller and such.Bad Stuff:It seems a little on the heavy side to me, but maybe it's just that I'm a skinny little wuss. More importantly the hilt seems a little thick or too big in diameter for ease of use. Perhaps if the fake leather wrap comes off like everyone else says happened to them in their reviews it'll be a bit more managable. That's my main complaint. The hilt just seems a little larger than is comfortable, which is the last thing someone wants to be thinking about when swinging a sword.Lastly, the scabbard isn't that great either. The only point of attachment is a knob on one side.Conclusion:Not a bad blade. Overall I'd recommend this thing to anyone who wants a cheap and mostly-period sword. 4 out of 5.
This is an amazing buy. This sword is worth much more than $35. The blade is great quality and thick. I was surprised that a sword priced so low would have a carbon steel blade. The handle could pass as hand and a half, it is a nice comfortable size. The leather on the handle and scabbard is faux, but it serves the purpose. great quality scabbard, the brass accents are nice and add extra durability. One of the best buys a have had from true swords. True swords in general is a great quality site.
Let me start off by saying that i only purchase swords that in my opinion are battle ready. i was a bit hesitant on ordering this due to the fact that it says nothing about the tang and that its only 35 bucks. but after recieving it i gave it a quick test and started hacking at a 2x4. the sword took a good beating and nothing important came loose. the leather wrap grip totally fell off. but thatjust leaves me room for customization of it. the scabbard kinda sucks too but who gives a damn, its the sword that counts. if you want a cheap sword to lead you into the halls of valhalla this is right for you.
