    Passable look and balance. Very poor guard construction, unimpressive edge even with usually-excellent KOA sharpening.

    Amazing sword to buy! Guard construction is not poor, high quality steel, and amazing balance! Would definitely recommend.

    I quite like it! Balance is nice, its a basic but very pretty sword (perhaps thats just the aesthetic I like). The blade seems stiff, which is nice seeing as how windlass had a problem with their longer blades being too flexible in the past. Now this sword is more or less a spadroon which is cut and thrust, but mind the blaring “Unsharpened” tag in the specifications. Windlass is based in India. They cannot sell or ship sharpened swords. I bought mind with the kult of athena sharpening service just to put an edge at all on the blade, but let me tell you even with that service you’re barely going to cut anything. Its edge is almost pitiful, but at least with the sharpening service…you have an edge.

    How much that bothers you is up to you. I wanted AN edge on the blade but I dont plan on doing much cutting with it anyways. More for display and to feel a little more cool when practicing fencing. If you want it to be more functional, take it to a whetstone, grinder, sand paper, or file, but just know that whether or not you get the sharpening feature…You’re not going to getting a sharp blade in the mail. For my purposes however? Love it.
