Review of: Italian Ballock Dagger
This piece is very well made. The brass guard and decorative pommel give it a weighty feel in the hand. The triangular blade is made for maximum penetration. Scabbard fits loosely for quick action.
Will pair well with others in my collection. KL

Review of: Veronese Ballock Dagger
I just received my new Veronese Ballock dagger after a short wait. It is very well made. I could find no flaws or imperfections on the blade, handle or the scabbard. It fits like a glove. Handles well in the hand. My money was well spent. Beautiful piece. KL

As a Museum Replicas customer for over thirty years I am pleased to say that your products continue to impress and live up to the quality that I have come to expect from you. This small knife is everything it was advertised to be.

Review of: Sgian Dubh
Well-made. The wood handle is so smooth on the back it looks like plastic, but the carving on the front is precise. The sheath fits well, but will be all but invisible as it will be in my piper's hose. Blade is good steel - I will sharpen it myself. No sense having a "black knife" with no edge! ERSJR

Review of: Seax
Purchased for display. Hangs on the wall beside a “design your own” sword. Completely cool, but drips testosterone, which tends to stain the bearskin lying on the floor below them. In light of this, sensitive snowflakes may want to consider these effects before making a purchase and endangering their safe space. On the other hand, if you’re a man or woman who appreciates the gleam of toxic masculinity on sharp steel, place your order now!

Review of: Damascus Sgian Dubh Raider Knife
This is my first edged weapon from MR, so I was very excited considering the quality that I was expecting. I misread the dimensions on this, so this turned out to be much larger than I thought it would be. No complaints on the size though.
1st, the dagger. It essentially looks as it does in the photo. Since this is handmade you know to expect minor differences and I'm not disappointed. It is amazingly light to hold and even though it appears to have been sharpened, the cutting edge is rather dull, not a big deal. Sharpening a knife is rather easy. It does have a razor sharp point and easily pierced many cardboard boxes I have. I haven't tried it on anything thicker yet as I don't want to risk damaging the tip. Based on how sturdy the knife feels, I have no doubt this would pierce clothing and flesh quite well if I was forced to use it for self-defense.
2nd, the sheath. Since this is my first experience with old-world craftsmanship when it comes to medieval styled weapons, I don't have much to compare it to. The knife sits loosely in the sheath and the strap is the only thing that will hold it in place if you decide to walk around with this on your belt. Otherwise I feel this would fall out very easily. The sheath's construction seems decent, but I'm unsure at this point how well I would rate the quality since I haven't had the time to use it on a day-to-day basis.
Overall as a combo I'm giving this five stars.

Review of: Stag Horn & Damascus Hunting Dagger
Well-made handle, hilt and blade, which was very sharp except for an inch near the tip. Altogether, it's a great knife for advertised or other (probably) light use.

Review of: Musketeer Main Gauche
A wonderful item, everything one would expect for a military main gauche. The decorative work and construction is rock solid. Love the scabbard too, love the blue!
