Great quality and great service!
I ordered this rapier and it looks so much better in person. The look and feel is just great. I would definitely shop here again
I originally ordered two of these as donor parts for making some fencing blades, but after getting them seriously rethought the Idea. To my surprise, the carbon steel blades were actually carbon steel, and way too well made to just toss in the slag pile. I liked them so much I ended up ordering a third one.
It's also noteworthy that this happened during the start of the shipping slowdown, resulting in a delay in getting the blades (Not something anyone could anticipate or control). The moment I asked if they were running late, I received an email letting me know that they were delayed and offering me options if I didn't want to wait, as well as telling me an estimated time if I did still want to wait. You can't do customer service better than that, truthfully - they responded so quickly in what must be very trying times.
I'll be buying from these folks again.
