Cold Steel Chinese War Sword
Beautiful product (sword). However, the sheath is not nice designed to go along with the sword. Great price but a little heavy to handle.

Chinese War Sword
Used this sword to clear a tree about a foot in diameter that fell in a driveway, chopped better than an AX. No damage at all to the blade and was literally still hair shaving sharp. Handle did become loose, but this sword definitely cuts. Make it full tang out of carbon V like the Kukri...need I say more...

Sweet!
My husband has wanted a Chinese war sword for a long time and he really likes it! It will be used for display. I was really excited how quickly we received the sword! The only thing we didn't like about it was there were two spots that weren't covered by the cord covering. Other than that we are very pleased with our purchase.

Cons: Handle Material
The only thing I don't like is the handle. It is comfortable, but seems a bit cheap. Very sharp, strong blade. This sword is amazingly quick and agile for its size. This would be a devastating weapon in the hands of a skilled swordsman.

While the overall quality of the blade itself is good ...
While the overall quality of the blade itself is good, the handle leaves much to be desired. The fittings are loose, the scales are cheap pieces of wood that are not even shaped well so there is a section of metal that bites into your dominant hand. All said and done, I'm very disappointed. This sword is not worth the money I paid for it
