Beautiful and rediculously durable!
I bought mine about a year ago and it has survived numerous battles, being submerged in multiple lakes (dock fights lead to impromptu swimming!) And even a ferret attack or two.
Not one crack or break, and its colors haven't faded in the slightest!
Looking forward to many more years of the same!
I love the handle, it is very comfortable, and it looks great, it feels great in my hands, but the front view of the blade is subpar. The flat of the blade tapers very steeply and roundly into the blade, while good for safety, I have no friends and that is not a problem for me. It makes it look very comical. And the back is exceedingly rough in one spot. It looks terrible, but nothing a bit of primer and paint won’t fix. While I went into details about the flaws, I find the rest of the blade to make up for this. It seems that this may be a small flaw on the individual level, the front of the blade is very flat and round. This is hideous and makes this sword the equivalent on my stomach. But you should buy it anyways.
The sword is beautiful. However there is a flaw with the design of the handle that I begin to notice when I realised that I couldn’t parry nor control or handle it well compared with other Larp swords that I used. The thickness of the handle was too thick for my M size hands that I couldn’t fully grip or wrap my fingers around it, as it leaves a gap between my fingers and my palm.
La qualité de réalisation est OK comme toujours, et le design vraiment réussi. 2 bémols cependant:
- au niveau de l'aspect, la lame reste assez épaisse (pour rester sécuritaire j'imagine), ce qui pénalise le design qui mise plutôt sur la finesse et l'élégance
- beaucoup plus gênant pour la manipulation, la poignée "imitation cuir" n'en est pas du tout, c'est la même matière que le reste de l'épée, et elle est du coup très glissante, il n'y a vraiment pas de grip ; du coup il vaut mieux avoir des gants ou mitaine en cuir pour compenser. Il aurait mieux valu du cuir lacé sur la poignée (quitte à être un poil plus cher).
