Nothing bad to say about this cutlass. One of my best !

This is a cutlass that ErroI Flynn or Basil Rathbone would be proud of! I purchased the Golden Coast cutlass as part of the Black Friday madness, and I don't regret a doubloon of the purchase price, Matey. There does not appear to be any of the faux-gold wash on either the half-basket hilt or blade, which IMHO is all to the good: Why gild the lily? The blade is very plain, with no fuller and (truth to tell) a "soft" ridge line. The basket and grip are large enough to accommodate a gauntleted hand, which is one of my litmus tests for a truly functional weapon. Overall, an admirable rendering of this swashbuckling sword type!

I expected the blade to be gold, but it wasn't. I also requested the sword be sharpened, and that didn't happen. I enjoy ordering from this site, but this was really a botched job. The reason I'm not giving this one star is, because it appears to be a sturdy sword with good balance.

I actually Ordered this for my Grandson and he loves it. It did have a few flaws though. While I expected some discoloration due to antiquing, the blade had a few spots not in line with the antique look. Also, the blade is gold as promised, but I was looking for an antique look to the gold, like the guard is. Overall loved it! great buy
