Cold Steel Italian Long Sword
The Cold Steel Italian Long Sword is definately a battle ready weapon. It came razor sharp, and fully lived up to my expectations. One thing to note is that the handle of the sword (from the guard to the end ) is actually about 11 1/4 inches long. Cold steel only classifies the part of the handle wrapped in leather as the handle. So the handle will be slightly longer than you expect. The only con about the sword is the leather used to wrap the handle. The stitching is rough and can be somewhat painful on the hands. Overall an excellent sword for the price.
