Excellent sword, very happy with it. Weight and balance is pretty good, though it would probably be best to use the Sir Godfrey with a shield or parry weapon (should the need arise). I chose the sharpened option, which was very well done, it is extremely sharp. I bought it on sale, which made it even more attractive.
This is by far my favorite sword out of my entire collection. I also have the robin hood sword but this one beat it by a long shot. The handle is extremely comfortable especially when compared to the robin hood sword, and this sword has excellent
balance. The picture just doesn't do the sword justice
I am very pleased with this sword. I think I like it even more that Robin's sword. The etching on the blade is great. I ordered it sharp, and man is it ever sharp. My only problem is that it arrived with a few tiny spots of rust on each side of the point. Due to the lack of oil or cosmolene on it, I would bet that they wiped most of it off to do the sharpening, and then failed to put any back on before re-packaging it. I cleaned it up with a little 1500 grit papaer and super fine steel wool, then waxed the whole thing with Renaissance Wax. Overall, a very nice and historical looking sword.
