Good review and some good pics -
"I think people are expecting a razor sharp edge for a $30 price tag. It takes time, dedication and skill for a sharpener to have the edge revealed shaving sharp. This sharpening is not as sharp as I would like, but it is functional to say the least. "
Sounds like they have improved their sharpening, previously the sharpening has left much to be desired ending with a course belt ground bevel, kudos to DSA for the improvement

as someone who professionally sharpens swords i must add that it does not take any more than 15 minutes to properly sharpen a sword to a hair shaving edge, this was an issue i spoke with DSA personally about when they sent me a sword to be reviewed, hopefully they have taken it into consideration and will implement improving sharpening
Thanks for all the replies thus far everyone! This was my first review, so I am pleased to hear it was enjoyed.
Croccifixio, I found that despite the weight, the sword is still capable of quick, crisp and successive one and two handed cuts. Granted, it would take a person of great strength to wield this sword in battle for a long period of time.
I think they discontinued them months ago and have been slowly selling them. They took the Ranger off their website awhile ago, but I emailed them and they still had 3 available so I picked one up while I still could.
I am not interested in knowing "whats-under-the-tang" considering DSA anymore...not at all. I posted mainly because they told us YEARS ago that this baaad unlicensed LOTR swords would be discontinued... just another brick in the wall... by the way Wes stripped down some of their swords...ask him about the tangs! Its... interesting.
durinnmcfurren: He is using a picture of my viking equipment. He has nothing to do with me. This is a very niðinger-like act on his part! Not drengr at all.

lebleuchevalier: I just got a new Windlass sword and was surprised some of these are coming pre-sharpened from Museum Replicas. There's a big secondary bevel, but it came nice and sharp.

Ouroboros: Master shotokan, been good if not busier than busy. Think the family has only been home 2 weekends and a week all summer. Camping fun before the winter grinds us to grist. Hope your labs come back a.o.k. long haul symptoms suck.

LoE: Lemme guess... wants a private check, no refunds. Shares stock photos. Doesn't want accountability. But has exactly whatever it is you're looking for.

LoE: Never selling it himself of course. Just a zero post guy that "knows" of someone who has one, if you'll reach out to him privately. I get tired of the scam artists. Wish they'd get arrested.

LoE: Watch out for tomk001. Seems to be the next occurrence of the same scammer aldarith pointed out. Hitting me up in PM's offering whatever I have listed in WTB.

Ouroboros: Decided to compare custom blades between rhe site listed below and hanbon (read the faq and it mentions hanbon) same options it would appear to be same? New face, old business?

LoE: aldarith lemme guess, he creates an account, has zero posts, then PM's someone stating a friend of his has exactly the sword you listed in the WTB section.
