Very good for the price, comes sharp and polished, the finish is smooth and consistent. I can't imagine it would ever break with regular use. It is a bit blade heavy though, but that's to be expected with this style of sword.

Lovely blade. Heavy, but decent balance and a tough edge with excellent flexibillity and a nice scabbard make it an awesome buy. Need to get more battlecry blades. This one is quite nice.

Ok, I received the Acre sword as a second choice to the Agincourt because the Agincourt sword is backordered and no telling when I could get it. Immediately out of the box and into my hands you can see it and feel it... "This is a real sword!" I said out loud to myself. Great price for a great sword in my opinion. I am awaiting another...

Disappointed to find that the weapon, though finely crafted is NOT crafted in the states but crafted in India. Also, on my particular weapon, the guard was opening to seat it over the tang was a lot larger than it needed to be and I find that to be a sign of sloppy craftsmanship. It is secured appropriately so that it doesn't move around but I can visualize it breaking free after use and falling down the length of the blade at some time or rattling back and forth on the tang. For all the hype about "hands-on craftsmanship" going on with this series, I expected a lot more from it. Nothing about this blade or craftsmanship stands out from any normal rating so I give them 3 stars. If I had known more about this series going into my purchase I'm not sure I would have made the same investment.

This is my first sword from Windlass, but it seems to be a really nice good quality sword for a reasonable price.

I love this sword. This is my 3rd sword from the Battlecry series, and they never cease to impress. The second I unwrapped and cleaned it, I could easily see something like this chopping off limbs, heads, and any other appendages on long ago battlefields. It's a hefty blade, but straight out of the box it's razor sharp. My only quarrel is that it's a little stiff to pull out and put in the scabbard, but a little breaking in will fix that nicely, and it's no reason to take any stars away from what is an excellent sword. I'd have paid 3 times what I paid for this sword. It's already been used for chopping some milk jugs and old watermelons, and it performed admirably. Thank you again, Museum Replicas. You've delivered an amazing piece of steel once again.

Great sword. I wanted something that was shaped like a REAL sword, not all the fantasy toys that I tend to see. Was really happy to get this, traditional feel with a slightly modern black color effect gives it just enough attitude.
