This is a very well made sword. I already started using it for photo shoots. It photographs very well. This is my second sword from BB. I’m very happy that I bought this.
Great collectors item looks fantastic
Weighted nicely , the handle is comfortable I haven’t had much opportunity to drink it outside and practice with it. The stuff I did do inside feels really good
