    I bought this for a Celtic-based barbarian kit for a ren faire character originally, and expected it to be a showpiece and nothing more. I was surprised. While not the shining example of bladesmithing, considering it was intended as a movie prop replica it is quite a decent little sword. The blade is about average to upper-average for functional production swords (as opposed to wallhangers, who's only other use beyond hanging on a wall to look pretty is to double as emergency boat anchors), and once sharpened makes a fairly good cutting blade. The hilt, however, has the downside of all cast bronze hilts of this type in that it will rattle loose over time. While this doesn't affect the structural integrity, per se, the noisy wiggling will get annoying very quickly. This is a flaw common to such blades due to the metal-on-metal fittings. If you know how to re-peen pommels, just take a peening tool and repeen it to tighten it back up. I will admit I am not a fan of the decorative nicks in the blade, but these are apparently from the movie, so not much you can do there unless you're a masochist willing to sit down and grind, sand, and buff the blade down 15%-20% of it's thickness. Overall, I love this little fellow, and it is one of the best Celtic anthropomorphic swords on the market for the price.
