I recently purchased this blade and am completely satisfied. The balance is amazing and the action is quick and responsive. Thank you for making such an excellent piece.

My group and I use this sword almost exclusively for Longsword study, at least three of us own one. This is a workhorse of a training weapon, firm in the bind, easy to rotate, and the blade is still taking a beating in learning Fiore and Liechtenauer, yet still performing as it did on day one. A great sword for overall longsword learning.

Light in the hands and can flow very well. Keep the title in mind, basic training longsword..... the second time I was using it the part of the tang where the pommel threads on to, bent. Doing SCA Cut and Thrust I have received several deep nicks in the blade. The blade itself is very flexible and it will start to flex prior to my DA3 Spada blade. The blade passes the Heavy Rapier blade requirements without a sweat. The leather handle that came on the sword took a hit and was cut open. I took the leather off and dyed the cord underneath. It is well worth the money but if you are doing HEMA or WMA look at their federschwert, it will suit your purposes much more. I am happy with the product and for the money it is hard to beat. I will be getting the Messer and the Feder next.
