Blade is too good to let the poor sheath give a 4 star rating
First off, knifecenter sent me an email 20 minutes after my purchase to let me know they had shipped. Because of UPS being slow, it took a week for me to receive my sword/machete/ spear. The sheath came unbuckled and unsnapped while I was trying to loosen the strap. The sword fell out of the sheath slicing my finger deep enough for stitches. The blade barely touched my finger, and made a cut so clean, I didn't feel the pain when it happened. When I first unsheathed the sword, I thought it was too flimsy. After the mean slice it gave my finger, I was a little impressed. If you mess around with blades as much as I do, your gonna get cut. I forgot the the blade was 1065, and just researched that steel prior to this purchase. Sword makers often prefer that steel over harder steels because of the flex. Yes, it will wiggle a little if you shake it hard enough, but don't let that scare you. I started testing the blade on some thick firewood that had only recently been cut. I was surprised at how deep the blade went into the wood with just a flick of the wrist. I started hitting the wood a little harder each time. Being careful not to brake my new blade. I actually ended up hacking two fat logs in two. Not in one cut, but still. The blade is so light, I was shocked at how much damage it did to such hard targets. It didn't even dull the blade. I also tried throwing it like a spear, and it actually sunk about 3 inches into the tree I threw it at. I had hard time getting it out. I think the flexibility of the 1060 steel is what makes this blade so durable. It also sliced right through some two inch branch and vine that is too high up to reach with any kind of conventional clippers or machete. The long 20 inch handle really gives this blade more practical uses than one might think. It is definitely fit for combat. If you have broad shoulders like me, your only going to get that sheath over one shoulder. Be careful when adjusting the strap. I never cut myself doing crazy stupid tricks. It's always something simple and clumsy like the sword falling out of a sheath that was snapped shut. It's the plastic toggle on the shoulder strap that comes undone if there is too much pull on the strap. Easy to fix. Like I said the blade is too good for a poor review do to the sheath. It was only $50! It cuts better than some of the swords and custom machetes and I've spent well over $100 on.
