A Stainless Steel blade huh? Mine rusted over after one night outside. If and only if you keep it dry it makes a good hacking sword. Sharp blade. Thick blade. Fair quality sheath. Overall a good buy, but c'mon BUDK don't tell me it's stainless when it's not.
I ordered 6 of these swords while they were on BOGO (buy one get one free). So far only 1 of the 12 has broken. The sword blade is sharp and tough. The sheath and belt are nice. My only problem is with the handle. After a few whacks it comes loose and eventually falls apart completely. Definitely a fixer-upper, but overall a good buy.
This sword is very sharp, right out of the box. It is also heavy, can take abuse. the only drawback is that it is blade heavy, not well balanced for a welding with one hand. Scabbard is not very functional.
I spoke with someone at BudK a while back who said they had taken this thing and smashed cinder blocks and chopped on railroad ties and it didn't come apart so they guess it's full tang. I can say it's heavy like a broad sword. I've got a Cold Steel Gladius machete (which is nice) that feels light by comparison. The scabbard is nice. It comes reasonably sharp. It's a think blade and sharpens with my ax sharpener fine. It should kill lots of zombies.
It's stainless steel...that means it isn't meant for "dishing out damage." A real sword is made of carbon steel, tool steel, etc...not stainless steel.
Definitely a fantastic purchase! The sword itself comes fairly sharp, with a slightly rounded tip, and is perfectly capable of doing plenty of damage. The ridge that runs down the center of the blade adds plenty of extra punch to each impact, and the blade itself has a great weight and balance to it.
The sword looks beautiful as well, and mine came with no noticeable defects on the blade. The hilt may look uncomfortable, being slightly boxy, but I assure you it feels good in the hand and is very solid construction.
The sheath that comes with the sword is nice, and the sword is slightly oiled to help it last inside the sheath. The material of the sheath is a bit cheap, but you aren't buying this sword for a nice sheath. The shoulder straps for the sword are a bit fidgety, but are easily overlooked when you have this magnificent blade in your hand.
Overall, a great purchase for its price, a beautiful sword that can dish out damage as well as look great in the hand. You won't be disappointed.
