The gauche is well made. The wire rapping is an 1/8" short of the handle. The gauche is well balanced. The basket is solidly connected to the gauche. The hilt is wide, I am not an experienced sword fighter, so I am not sure of its purpose. The scabbard is well made although it is a deep blue color, not the traditional black. I ordered the gauche sharpened. The gauche's edge is even along the entire length of the gauche.

Once again, Museum Cutlery has exceeded my expectations! Sharp, stout, beautiful and deadly!
This is no mere wall hanger, this can be used and the balance, workmanship and quality of materials goes to show that Museum Replicas is doing things the right way!

Nicely made, with lots of reach & great hand protection & the engraving is lovely as any other I have seen. It handles nicely in my opinion & I am going to purchase the matching Rapier as soon as I can.

A little big for a secondary weapon to the rapier.. My wife uses it as a short sword with her ensemble.. Quality Craftsmanship!!! A++
