Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Material, Finish
Cons: Handle Material, None
I've been using the blade for WMA, so far it has been great. The heat-treatment is nice (the tip area will bend over 90 degrees and return to true, the forte is still very thick and rigid.). The shoulders are nicely rounded, and the tang is long enough for decent customization. the only con is the fact that the weld between threaded tang and tang does not seem very strong, it bends easily. Many originals have scarf welds with similar strength, so I am not to concerned.
