I bought this sharpened from Museum Replicas at a discount (not a "Deal of the Day") as a partial adjustment for as less well made rapier. The dagger is superb, and worth the offer price. It weighs in at a hefty one pound with a heavy pommel that keeps the blade balanced and the tip raised when in a fighting stance. The decorative throat and chape are matched by the same on the hilt and quillions. It's worth remembering that this, like other Windless Steelcraft blades is a hand made weapon, and will not have the same look and feel of a mass produced blade.
A brief note about Museum Replica's customer service: In my view it's among the highest quality I've ever gotten when I've had other product issues. I had posted a review about my dissatisfaction with another purchase and was contacted by a CSR the same day! She noted my concerns and within a matter of hours she had proposed a remedy that, with very little negotiation, had my new acquisition on its way, and I received it within 24 hours! Kudos to WS and MR for another fine product and superb customer support!
