I had my eye on this piece for a while and pulled the trigger on it while it was a "Deal of the Day". A little shorter than expected, more of a long dagger than a short sword, but beautifully executed with regard to fit and finish. Fast in the hand and razor sharp. Another hit for Museum Replicas and Windlass!

Beautiful blade with a razor's edge. Custom initials look great. Scabbard seems sturdy.
Unfortunately, the blade is noticeably asymmetrical; I didn't even try to return it because it's sharpened

Short sword or big knife?!? Whichever, a nice piece of work.

This blade is fantastic. I purchased it sharpened and it came sharp as a razor. The weight is amazing and the handle swell fits the hand superbly. I love this gorgeous weapon.

Just received my two Spartan Swords today, and I can't believe how magnificent these swords are! The balance and feel of blades are perfect. The materials used and the overall craftsmanship are unmatched! Any Spartan would be proud to carry a weapon such as this into battle. Thank you MRL for the best set of swords I own! And thank you to my girlfriend who purchased them for me!

Absolutely Stunning. The Bronze looks much better in person than in the picture. Sharpened means razor sharp. Nicely balanced about a centimeter above the edges of the guard. A truly quality piece that does justice to its inspiration.

Great purchase. Arrived exactly as shown. Sharpened version comes amazingly sharp (not to be played with at all).
It's my favorite sword of my collection. I love how the handle (bronze) darkens with use. A good buy.

So far, my only MRL purchase has been the Lakonia Short Sword's precedessor, then called a Celtic Leaf Bladed Sword. Sure, I love it, but it wasn't well-balanced; a weighty 'pommel' had to be fitted to the handle's protruding nipple. Sexiest blade shape!
