Beautifully balanced, this is the type of weapon that the tough, hard bitten professional fighting man of his day would have chosen. It is simply a no-nonsense sword that can perfectly perform its one purpose.  The somewhat small radius of the wheel pommel makes up its weight by being fully 1-1/4" thick. The stout crossguard is not overly long and is curved to protect the hand from an opponent's sliding blade or shield.  The grip is wood covered in cord and leather for good solid contact.  The high carbon blade tapers to a good firm stabbing point while retaining enough width for a sheating cut along its full length and is tempered to a very tough spring.  Includes leather scabbard, made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Can be sharpened for an additional fee.

Very simple and very functional. Solid construction from what I can tell. Not the best looking sword in my collection but definitely is functional. Recommended if you want a sword to use not a wall hanger.

I was very disappointed in the construction quality of this piece. One of the elements that drew me to Museum Replicas was the claim that their products were made to original or better build quality. Mine has a very cheap feel and the blade is not full tang. While I did not abuse this sword or engage in any mock sword fights, the blade became loose and spins in the handle. I discovered that the end of the blade is small threaded stock and the handle is held on with a little nut. I doubt a medieval swordsmith who didn't want be ran out of the village on a rod would have employed such shoddy workmanship. I'm sure MR has some fine products, but I can't recommend this one.

Excellent sword. Definitely one of the best Museum Replicas offers. I wrote a full review on the sword on the Sword-Buyers-Guide if you would like to read more about this sword. http://www.sword-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=22913

I read reviews on it at swordbuyersguide.com before buying it, and I was relieved to find that it was everything it was said to be and more! The sword is a simple design, but it's put together well (nothing is loose or rattling), and cuts well.
