Absolutely beautiful and exactly as I ordered! Thanks!

The sword is beautiful and well made, but the hilt is too short. I have large hands, and they just fit in between the pommel and quillons, but when I swing the sword the upcurve on the pommel cuts into my hand.
Unfortunately, it will make a very nice wall hanger.

A very nice sword that is slightly more blade heavy than later swords; in this is authenticity with the time period. I'm not all that happy with the faux banding wraps on the scabbard, but in all, a good sword if you know the correct form of grip. Authenticity would dictate that the fuller area be polished like the balance of the blade. As per Oakshot, you wouldn't be able to see the "pattern" unless you breathed on it. Joe Brown

Very light and fast sword, but still tough and just plain beutiful with the etchings in the center of the blade.
