A nicely balanced weapon that almost floats in my hand. It is very fast and maneuverable in close quarters. The workmanship and fit is excellent. From the sharp point to about 8" down, it is like a knife blade. Then the blade transitions into a cleaving edge.  So you may lightly slit, deeply slice, stab, or chop with confidence. This is the favorite of my sword collection.

I love this cutlass.  It is well balanced and very quick in the hand.  It is by far my favorite long blade and second only to my hand forged Tomahawk.

The scabbard is well made with a handy belt frog.  I purchased the European baldric as I find it much more comfortable to wear. Plus it looks so badass!

Handsome, elegant, ferocious.  This cutlass feels the way I would want any sword to feel.  The thanks to the profile taper the balance is perfect for a cut-centric sword with no sense of blade heaviness at all and still with wonderful point control.  Seems to match the original pattern closely and is solidly put together (the hilt is peened and seems to have the additional strength of being resined as well). The only negative is that the wire wrapping on the grip can irritate the had...on the other hand (pun!), it does cause the sword to remain locked in your grip.  This little sword has been the standard setter in my collection and continues to be.  It's also a great Steampunk cutlass for those wanting one to round off a costume.

Wonderful
Absolutely wonderful.  Can be used in Civil War Reenacting or as part of a pirate costume.  I have an early original pattern 1860 Cavalry Sabre made by Ames Mfg Co.  and the only difference between that one and this apart from size is the maker marks on the original are stamped not lazer engraved.   Stamping would have been a nice touch...
