OVERVIEW

Forged by the dark elves in ages beyond counting, the sword was held by the wood elves for hundreds of years until it was gifted to a man known by many names, but called “Blacksword” thereafter. Feared by orcs, dwarfs, men and evil beasts alike, the bearer of the sword carried out many great deeds until his death while slaying a great evil dragon.

This beautifully weighted and balanced war sword is worthy of legend. It has black parts and a wood grip wrapped in leather for a secure grasp. The fully tempered high carbon steel blade is blued to a fine black luster and arrives factory sharp. Includes scabbard. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts

A little lesson in history
His name was Turin son of Hurin, Adanedhel (the elf man), Agarwaen son of Umarth (that is The bloodstained son of illfate), The Mormegil (the black sword), Neithan (the wronged),  Turambar (master of doom), the is the bane of Glourung the father of all dragons, heir to the house of hador, the most valiant man of the first of middle earth. cursed by Morgoth. his sword was Gurthang, the Iron of death, taken from his fallen friend whom he had slain with his own blade being mistaken for an orc in the night. after slaying the dragon his curse and doom was reveled to him and he cast himself upon the point of Gurthang and its blade broke beneath him

Black Sword !
I always wanted to have a sword with a black blade. I find it very attractive. The sword is fast and light. This sword is listed as hand and half but could easily be wielded with both hands. The sword is solid and has no rattling. The scabbard... hmmm so so. I spoke with other collectors who had the same problem so it seems recurrent. The problem is that the sword fits too tightly into the scabbard. It's really too tight and it's also difficult to draw. The problem with forcing a blued blade into a scabbard is that it's dangerous to scratch the blade, which would really ruin the look of this beautiful weapon. I hope that Windlass will improve this point. As for me, I don't display my sword inside the scabbard. I give 4 stars because of the scabbard.

An overall good sword,but…
However the 3 stars is because of the shipping company used(FedEx). They are terrible. Pkg was delayed for several days and a lot of runaround from their cust. Service reps. No offense to Atlanta Cutlery/MRL and Windlass, but choose another delivery company(UPS is a bit better). Anyway,got the sword in and it looks good. Fairly well balanced. The scabbard has some weird chalk material in it that gets the blade dirty when you sheath it and draw it out. It would be nice to see a better scabbard made and have rings for attaching to a belt/frog etc. You will have to modify the scabbard to make it wearable on your hip etc. This might increase the cost of the sword but probably worth it,IMO. Anyway the folks at MRL are great,just choose a better delivery service for products.

This one is a masterpiece.
If you're looking for a black sword for an evil knight costume, or a Marvel's Black Knight (TM) costume, you've found it. It's gorgeous. The scabbard is a locking scabbard as well for extra security, which is a nice little bit extra. It radiates sinister, and I certainly love it.

Great sword with really only one minor flaw
I love this sword.  I've got a lot of blades, so you have to know it means something when I call one out as a favorite.  This one is actually my daughter's favorite and the one she has staked her claim on when she moves out in a couple years.  The only gripe I have is that the way the blade sort of flares out near the hilt doesn't match up perfectly with the way the scabbard flares out at the same point.  The scabbard is just a little longer at the top there than the blade, so the blade shows a little when sheathed.  Seriously not a big deal though.  It's a gorgeous blade that is a pleasure to swing and looks so great hanging on the wall.  If you are looking for the sword that Darth Vader would have carried in the middle ages, then this is it.

Nice blade
For the price this sword is good quality. I ordered it sharpened and it was actually sharp when it came in. The engraving was good as well.

Nice sword!
The sword came in nice and sharp just how I wanted it. It took a while to hear anything about shipping and delivery since they were out of stock, but it was worth the wait! The only thing I could really complain about was how badly shaped the crossguard was when it arrived. One side was bent inwards and not aligned. Luckily as a hobby blacksmith, I was able to reshape it with little issues. Still a great purchase!

Just awesome
I've wanted this sword for a long time. My wife talked me into finally buying it. It is awesome. The first one they sent had some damage. When I called customer service they were just as awesome. They paid to ship it back and once they got it they overnighted my replacement. I couldn't be happier.

Gorgeous and Functional
I tend to stay away from "fantasy" swords, but Windlass has a way of making great fantasy swords that are equally functional. I am in love with this sword. It is a bit heavy and the "leather" on the grip feels slightly cheep. But that being said it is a beautiful piece and since it is a two handed sword with decent balance it is plenty fun to swing with ease and looks great for cosplay.

Blacksword
4 stars because it came with quillon bent more on on one side. Bought it sharpened and am happy with job done. Beautiful, balanced, cuts jugs like a laser. Pleased with scabbard. White powder cleans out easily and fit issue has been resolved, mine draws easily

Do it. Do it.
If you have been mulling this one over, just stop and get it. It is one of favorites. The weight is perfect for one hand or two. Beautiful finish.  Stop thinking about it and get it. it will not disappoint.

Functional, Beautiful, Fantasy
I came across this sword some time ago and instantly fell in love, but talked myself out of buying it because it said "Fantasy" and I was kind of skeptical. However, when it popped up as a deal of the day I couldn't pass it up. And it is BEAUTIFUL! As well as being completely functional. I got the sharpening service as well and it is VERY sharp. Can't wait to do is the costume I'm putting together for next year's Ren Fest, this sword will look amazing with it!

One of my favorites and Windlass' best!
This sword was one I immediately fell in love with when I first saw it. Now, I have it! As always, the item came shipped properly, safely, and securely. The blade has a great edge and heft without being ungainly. An instant favorite!
