Wow man. This is awesome. I’ve been a fan of Percy Jackson for years, and I’m slowly gathering up collectibles like what kinds of swords they have, (I already have riptide, Annabeth’s knife, and Hazel’s Sparta) and I was having a really tough time finding something that would look good for nicos Stygian iron sword. I tell you what, this really does the trick.

Just got this today and wow is it incredible.  I got it sharpened by them and just touching the blade I cut myself.  It feels so perfect and balanced.  I HIGHLY recommend this if you're thinking about getting one.

Great sword with a catch
This is a truly amazing sword. If you are a  first-time sword buyer (like me) then this is a great one to start with. I am proud to call this my first sword. HOWEVER, there is a white substance that gets on the blade when you put it in the scabbard, it is very annoying (and it is the reason I don't give this five stars) and it makes the blade seem very messy. Overall an amazing item.

Highly Disappointed
I read the reviews and thought this sword was a safe bet, but after waiting for it to arrive, it was bent horribly to one side... I must have just gotten unlucky and perhaps it was a shipping mishap but this is definitely not what I paid for.

Awesome Sword
I've had my eye on this sword for quite some time and finally decided to treat myself.  I've collected about a dozen different swords from MR and have had excellent service and experience.  This new sword has exceeded my expectations.  It's beautiful....absolutely stunning.  I ordered it sharpened and it is really sharp.  One would need to exercise caution in handling it but that's the way I would want it.  I love the finish on it.  Great feel, great weight, powerful, and impressive.  This will certainly become one of my favorites in the growing collection.  Highly recommended.

good sword, scabbard not so much
good sword, feels good in the hand, wish the grip was alittle bit better but overall I feel its a great piece for the price, scabbard on the other hand is very poor, I really dislike the way it looks and it leaves this powder residue on the blade everytime I sheath it

Thank you for your review! The Blacksword has been very well received and we are very pleased that you like it too! The powder acts as a desiccant during shipping to prevent moisture from affecting the blade. After several insertions and removals, as well as tapping the end of the scabbard, this protectant won't appear on the blade. When you take your blade out, make sure you wipe it down.
Very powerful, durable, and we'll balanced
This sword is definitely a perfect balance of speed, power, strength, and durability.  I definitely love it because it allowed me to decorate the sword into my own design and it's definitely combat ready.  The blade itself is very strong and it doesn't rust easily due to the black finish.

The overall appearance is wonderful, however I received this damaged, I assume it is carrier damage. The quillon is bent more on one side than the other and it is also cracked a bit. The fasteners holding the handle wrap are not fully seated and dig into my hands. The sharpening is superb however. The finish is awesome overall.

With the sword, no complaints, it is a perfect sword. Weight, balance, length, more like a long sword you can easily use two hands with. My only complaint is the scabbard. It is nice, very handsome, but if you successfully get the sword in the scabbard(if) should you be able to drawn it out you should be crowned as king of England. I have had some swords that were hard to draw, but this one is nigh impossible. BUT excellent sword.

I was looking around for a sword to buy, and instantly this one caught my eye! It is a wonderful piece of art, well priced for the quality! It has good balance, and the sharpening I got on it was well worth it! Though I have held, and used, swords in the past, I am proud to have this as my first sword!

However, I did have a few issues with it. For one, the scabbard is tight around it, and makes it hard to put the sword in, or out. Also, it leaves a white powder on the blade when drawn.

I got the windlass rust blocker as well, I recommend getting this, it is well worth the price! This is a good choice for sword buyers, whether its is a first sword, or just part of the collection ;)

This is my first sword and I've saved up quite a bit of money for it as I had my eye on it for awhile now and I have to say I love it I'll definitely buy from here again.

Beautiful sword! Handles well with a cutting edge (sharpened) quite capable to cleave a head or arm from one's enemy. The series 'Walking Dead' gives reason for having a good sword along with a gun but lasts longer than a supply of ammo!
Realize a heavy set of gloves would help the bare hand rubbing against the guard. Thank you.

Well made, good balance, great look. Didn't get it sharpened, wish I had. Looking forward to my next sword.

The sword itself is fantastic, nice weight and balance, the reason I only rate it as 4 stars is because of two issues I have with the scabbard.  First, there is some kind of white powder (perhaps to help with moisture build up) inside that scabbard that coats the blade every time you draw the sword.  Second, the scabbard is extremely (and I mean extremely) tight on the blade, this makes it very difficult to quickly draw the sword from your scabbard.  Overall though, I am quite satisfied with this sword.

Awesome! Very pretty and well built. Its a little heavy, but well balanced. It just feels right in your hand (or hands)

Very well made sword. It seems strong, light and well balanced. The part of the guard the fits over the sheath would be good for turning aside or catching the blade of an attacker and maybe even disarming him before delivering a counterstroke.
