This is the second sword I have purchased here.
Truth be told, both times, I was expecting a flimsy sword.
Completely or the case, especially with this sword.
Has a beautiful Damascus pattern, a sheath with a built in peace tie, as well as a belt loop.
I unwrapped it today, as it just arrived, and I have to say. I am extremely impressed with this sword. Has incredible balance, as well as the edge is incredible. The blade is much thicker than I was expecting, so I can assure you that this sword will definitely stand the test of time.
I used to purchase swords that could be used at ren fests, and this one is just as good, if not better, than the o es I purchased with blunt edges, for use.
