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.

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.
