Very nice very large dagger. My wife wore it at the ren fest and received a bunch of complements for a lady with a dagger. When it arrived my son just had to test it out. He filled up a gallon plastic jug with water and took a swing. It sliced the jug in half like nothing leaving the lower half full to the brim undisturbed. I was very impressed how that worked out.
I bought this to go along with my Munich sword, and they compliment each other very well. This is a really large dagger, almost a short sword. Well-balanced, easy to sharpen using an Accusharp. I especially like the wire-wrapped handle, it adds a lot of class. It looks like it should cost a lot more than it does. I'm really happy with this purchase, and with Museum Replicas' great service.
Well-made, sturdy, and good-looking dagger. I only wish it was sharper.
This is a big, heavy dagger, certainly suitable for a main gauche and even as a small sword. Not for the faint of heart.
