Review of: Soldier’s Buckler
Initially I was leery of buying this product due to the gap between the boss and the rest of the buckler, but my concerns were unfounded. I got two of these when they were on sale for the deal of the day and I have been more than pleased with them. They are well balanced and the grip fits comfortably in my hand. The grip runs across the back of the buckler, keeping a low profile and offering great control over the buckler. Overall it is solidly built, able to stand up to the rigors of sparring. This is my new favorite buckler and I look forward to getting more for my club!

Review of: Bosworth Longsword
I am extremely pleased with this sword. For me, it essentially serves a decorative purpose and exceeds in that capacity. The blued finish has a gorgeous detail that is difficult to make out in the website's pictures. Paired with the shining silver blade, it is a beautiful sword. I must state that while it spends most of its time on display, I did not want to hang any weapon that isn't functional as well; it feels good in-hand, arrives pre-sharpened, and while I've only cut pumpkins with it there was no problem there... I honestly thought I somehow missed the pumpkin, my first strike; it didn't move. This sword cleanly bisected it laterally into two halves! Very fun :) My only reservation is that while the sword arrives "scissor sharp", I am reluctant to attempt to further sharpen it due to wanting to preserve the beautiful blue-black finish. I believe this is a terrific weapon for the price, and am completely satisfied with this purchase.

Review of: Maldon Seax
It's light and fast in the hand. Not real sharp but good edge retention... has more of a useable edge. Love the patina, not some people's cup of tea true, but there are some historical sources for such look for the blade. The grip is Good, not a real tight weave, but it does feel good in the hand. Overall this is a 5 star value for the price. Now I need his big brother lol

Review of: Acre Crusader Broadsword
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.

Review of: Culloden Basket-Hilt Sword
Received this sword yesterday, and I couldn't be more pleased with it. The construction is outstanding, the balance and feel are perfect, and its more modern finish makes it ruthlessly effective and practical. I am very happy with this purchase, and the Battlecry line of products in general. I'm glad I talked myself into buying this, because I would've regretted missing out! For anyone that is looking for a practical Scottish basket-hilt that values functionality above everything, this is the blade for you!

Review of: Fiore War Hammer
My first purchase from the Battlecry line and it exceeded all expectations! Outstanding. Solid. Massive. Love the finish!
Interesting the earlier comment about not liking the square handle. I think it's a more authentic look, and when wielding in battle chances are good that fighters wore gauntlets or at very least gloves.

Review of: Crecy War Dagger
I picked this dagger up to fill a void in my collection and to see if I would be interested in other Battlecry weapons.
I would say it is impressive. The balance is good, and the edge is strong. It is well built and solid even after taking a couple good hits and being dropped. The scabbard is above expectation and the frog it came with is far better than expected.
There is considerable bang for your buck with this dagger, it has the looks and the function.

Review of: Orleans Battle Axe
MR's axe offerings have always been more miss than hit with me. Most look beautiful in pictures but show up unsharpened without a realistic way to get a true edge on one.
Not so with the Orleans Battle Axe, complete with its top spike and rear spike.
I would like to see more of their axes done in this manner...double bladed battle axes, the Dragon Hunter axe, etc.
They finally got it right!
