bruntson: It's the same sword I ordered but with faux rayskin grips. No blade bends or twists, solid grip and no issues outside of the differnt grip. It is unsharpened but it's listed as battle ready for you backyard cutters. Feb 28, 2021 23:31:03 GMT
bruntson: It was suppose to have a brown leather grip. I'm was very happy to find that I recieved a pattern 1827 Royal Navy officer sword with the the white rayskin (resin) grip and in perfect condition. What a deal! Feb 28, 2021 23:25:12 GMT
bruntson: I just recieved from KOA, a Universal Sword British RN dress saber. It was one of their munition grade sword for $100. Feb 28, 2021 23:23:49 GMT

Zwilnik: It was in Detroit, not CA. Feb 22, 2021 23:02:55 GMT
Zwilnik: Not sure if this is ok to mention here or not, but someone used a Balaur Arms Teutonic sword against police in CA. There's a pretty gruesome pic of the sword floating around on Twitter. Feb 22, 2021 23:01:32 GMT
RufusScorpius: Markus was gone a little too long... I think it wise for Brother Nathaniel to investigate... just to be sure. No need in taking unnecessary chances... Feb 22, 2021 21:33:31 GMT
