Blade is REALLY wobbly.
Can't swing the sword without the handle rotating around. Got this to use for practicing (no contact at all - just practicing by myself) and it is completely unsuitable since the handle rotates.
Blade feels loosely mounted and also moves.
If you are just going to keep it on your hip, fine. Otherwise, stay away.
This, was the biggest disappointment I've had in a long time. The basket was poorly welded, every junction was sloppy and messy. Only about half of it had chrome on it, motly jus bare steel. Which was also unsanded, and rough. The blade was flimsy and bent. The hilt swivels and cannot be trusted, and also made of hollow plastic. Was that in the description? NO! I resent plastic hilts. I that detail had been mentioned, I would never have bought this sword. The discription said it was steel wire with rubber wrap.
Furthermore, the scabbard was NOT WOOD. It was cheap plastic that dented at the slightest touch. This is not even a sorry excuse for a sword. It can't even be a display item. This item is nothing but garbage.
It arrived in a timely manner. The packaging was very good to maintain the product. The scabbard is very nice and, as a hard scabbard, is quite useful for mounting to a frog (leather belt hanger). The sword itself is decent for looks. It is only sharp at the point, but it is not designed for practical purposes. If you're looking for a pretty to hang on your belt, this sword will do for the price.
