This is a beautiful Saber. The cast brass guard and pommel are of the highest quality. The blade is made of good steel with a great curve to it. Leather grip feels good. The sheath has nice leather and hardware and fits the Saber well. The weight of the sword is on the heavy side but has good balance. It arrived in perfect condition. This would be a steal at twice the price. So happy I ordered it for my collection !!!!
Bought this on "Deal of the Day" and it arrived like a rocket. Sharpening job was just OK, but I can work on that. Astounded how light snd nimble it felt, compared to the few other sabres I had handled, in the scabbard it felt TOO light, but then I tested it with it's none too sharp edge on hedges and bushes, and WOW confidence returned. A great cutter, nimble, cuts heavy stuff and the blade just tracks, you feel very much in control. I saw some reviewers elsewhere call it "clunky", I can't imagine what they're comparing this to. My idea of a "practical sword", I'm very satisfied.
