Longsword/ Bastard Sword- High Carbon Damascus Steel Sword With Clay Temper- 38"
I won't lie I had my doubts at first but this sword is solid for the price. Before buying I emailed some questions which were replied to very quickly and professionally, about the tang of the sword and once explained It crossed my mind I might be getting a cheap replica (again) also considering the price at which it would show up at my door. To my surprise I'm pulling a well preserved beautiful Damascus steel blade out of it's packaging, a solid piece of functional art to say the least. I look forward to completing the collection I have in mind and being able to do so without breaking the bank.
