I just received this sword and, I must say, I was immediately impressed. I bought this is a gift for my son and I'm sure his reaction will be the same as mine. The blade feels wonderful in your hand and seems to be very well balanced. The scabbard is absolutely beautiful. Quite possibly the best looking scabbard I have ever seen on a relatively inexpensive sword. My only complaint is the glued on parts. There should be a more permanent way to attach them. Otherwise, I HIGHLY recommend this blade.
This was a gift for my husband. We had it sharpened and initialed, which was totally worth the wait. I now have the best pictures of the hubs smiling like a kid holding this sword :) The quality of materials and attention to detail was excellent.
Even nicer then the pictures on this site a very chunky piece of metal very happy to own one
the fur and silver work really makes this a proud sword. the blade and sure take hits and looks as if brand new! i got mine sharpend and it is twice as good now! And yes some peices are loose but you can fix that up in a few secs. the leather is real fine. THIS SWORD IS A MUST GET!
great sword only complaint is some of the pieces are glued on and can come off but is easly fixable and one more thing Im 5ft10 average but broad shoulders build and the belt is for someone with a very large waist with not alot of belt loops on them smaller people might have to make more loops or holes in the belt
viking rule this sword is the best i own and i own several
