Pros: Materials, Usable, Handle Material, Blade Material, Overall Quality, None
Not as great as I would have hoped for but...
I do American War of Independence (American Revolutionary War) Re-Enacting. I required a sword as I had recently become an officer. This sword looks quite nice from a distance. The blade is pretty decent as well. The hilt and guard are VERY nice, though not for anyone with large hands. The leather on the scabbard is pretty decent too. And hey...for the price...you cannot beat it. Now for the bad news...The scabbard did not fit when I first received it...though in time it has now started to fit better. The brass fittings on the scabbard feel a bit cheap and flimsy but so far I have had no issue. Also not 100% period correct. Overall, for someone without a lot of money, and a hobby such as mine...definitely a usable piece, and looks quite nice hung up on a wall or at your hip.
