This being the very first sword I every bought, with regret it is not the sword I was seeking. Not blaming anyone, it was my ignorance, the sword is great for decoration or collection perhaps yet, it is not "battle ready","fully functional" nor made of carbon steel and "full tang" and etc. All this info I found out rather fast "after" the purchase. In other words as far as I thought a sword was a sword no matter what.
However, I want to thank Swords Knives and Daggers a great deal for excellent service and the many selections of products. Thanks again.
