Pros: Overall Quality, Usable, None
Great Wall-hanger and Backyard Fun
I hang this on my wall for decoration and use it to practice. The blade is obviously not sharpened with a good 1 mm thickness on the "cutting" edge, the tip is still pointy so some care should be taken. My sword balances about 6 cm from the guard, which is great considering these swords were intended for chops and slashes and not so much finesse. The black part of the scabbard is plastic so don't think you can use it to block anything - really my only complaint for the price. If you want something to abuse and practice saber techniques I would recommend trying this sword.
