Pros: Durability, Finish, Overall Quality, Materials
Best stealth I've ever seen
First the reason for the 4rating...in my opinion the sword was dull, that's like buying a gun without rounds to go with it....nothing unethical about it but it would be nice to let the buyer know or offer to sharpen for extra charge....another great cold steel product!!! Otherwise researched it a lot before purchase...I remember seeing the guy with sunglasses in his garage giving a review on YouTube . He said that he always wanted one but never came across one that was more that a showpiece ...this is it. I read a lot of complaints on it, most B.S....like the smell...clean it if you want, but I'm sure that when I need to use it I won't be thinking about the smell or that it Dulls on the tube upon insertion ...if I need to pull it out I will dull it before it goes back in anyway. I bought 2 one as a gift and one for me 10 years from now when I can get away with using a cane. I only buy weapons that are real. This is fully functional sword and would no doubt do the job. You will need to cut it to the correct length if you plan to use it as a cane easy job. Probably illegal to Cary on the street but great if you want a stealth weapon to lean buy your door .
