I love this sword! Like the Roman gladius, this one is a jack-of-all-trades weapon. Strong enough to withstand some really heavy blows, and reasonably light to deliver consecutive strikes and thrusts. The only downside I can say is that the hilt and pommel are not covered by leather, and so they require almost daily oiling to prevent them from rusting, more so than the blade itself. Also, make sure you are wearing gloves while using it, as your hand could end up sliding towards the hilt or pommel, wearing them down. But nonetheless, this is an excellent weapon for beginners as it has much of the strength of the Viking sword without being bulky, and much of the speed of a Rapier without being fragile
