My wife bought me this as a gift. I wanted a real sword, not just something to hang on the wall to impress people. This sword is awesome. It is beautiful and battle ready at the same time. Couldn't be happier.
This is an amazing piece of art. The hilt is indescribable, to say the least. I normally prefer big, brute longswords, but when I saw this blade, I had to add it to my collection. Craftsmanship is amazing, quality is unmatched. I highly recommend this sword.
