I was not sure when I saw this sword in presale. Prefering waiting for the nice Faithkeeper Templar Sword to come out. As soon as I saw it in Netflix's Outlaw King, I liked it better :) I ordered it from an official distributor in Canada. I am very happy with the sword. Perhaps I would have liked better that finish of the pommel and guard be identical. The guard is polished while the pommel is not. The sword is peened, which in itself is a big plus for many collectors. It is heavy enough for a one-handed sword. It could be a hand and a half? The sheath is very simple. I would have probably preferred a scabbard with a wooden heart and more decorated, as are more and more the swords of Windlass Steelcratfs. A nice purchase and addition to my collection. I give a 4 stars!
