Condor Tool & Knife Tactana Sword
I love Condor products so I couldn't wait to get my hands on a Tactana. I have a few other swords but not a really good beater and that is what I was looking for. From the first touch I liked it a lot and was happy with the balance point being only 2" in front of the guard making it a very fast easy handling sword. As I moved it around it became very clear that it was quite heavy. I weighed it because I couldn't believe it was that much heavier than my other swords but found that it was almost twice their weight. (almost 3 lbs). So I haven't really done anything with it yet as part of me wants to go start beating stuff with it, and I'm sure it will be incredible at that but another part would like it a bit lighter and therefore a little better as a sword like object. I may take a little meat off the blade to both refine the edge and lighten it some but that would take the away any value it has. I'll update when I've done more with it.
