After watching JC beat heck out of a pell with the bosworth, I knew I needed one for my pell work. I was not disappointed. The handling is wicked-fast, and the edge (which comes "scissors-sharp") doesn't show wear even after I have knocked many sizeable chunks out of my own pell. And at this price-point, if I break it in a year, I won't feel too bad about it. I'll just get another one and gleefully abuse it 'till it breaks too! After handling the bosworth, I want the whole Battlecry line. Great stuff!
Outstanding piece! Feels light and nimble in the hand. Cuts soft targets like butter. Haven't tried it on anything too rugged yet. Looks great, feels great. Only took a star off because it was a pain in the ads to get out of the package.
The Bosworth sword that I received had a rather concave edge on one side of the blade, almost as though the swordsmith nodded off while putting an edge on it. Which was surprising, given that I own several other swords from Windlass that are excellent weapons With great craftsmanship. I returned this Bosworth sword.
This is a wonderful sword. Period. For the price range, I do not know of a better one.
The price is reminiscent of one from a competitor, but the way this moves, and the scent stopper design sets it apart.
This sword moves like the swords that I drool over that are out of my price range.
I would prefer a different cross guard, but I didn't design it so I will not rate it down for that.
Hands down the best moving longsword in its price range, AND it moves as well as far more expensive blades.
The one warning is that the diamond cross section is kind of pronounced (and probably how they keep the price down). This does not bother me, but it will bother some, and you should be aware.
Well done Museum Replicas and Mr. Clements. This is a genuine sword with exceptional feel, not some movie based parody.
I feel like I'm more of a one handed type of guy so I was surprised at how much I liked this sword. Long and lightweight, I feel unfairly fast holding this blade. Woe to my enemies on the battlefield!
I am extremely pleased and impressed with the Bosworth Longsword. It is exactly what I had been hoping and waiting for: an economical, no nonsense, sharp longsword that handles authentically that can be used for test cutting experiments. It basically handles identically to high-end sparring steel "feather" swords. Highly recommended.
