I'd recommend taking the requested pictures and video of the problems and send it to them. Years ago I bought a dagger from MRL and bought the sharpening service, but they forgot to do the sharpening. I contacted them, they requested pictures. Once I provided them, MRL promptly refunded the cost of the sharpening.

Welcome to the Wacky World of Windlass. I have averaged one good sword for every four problem swords. That's why I usually only buy Windlass swords from KOA because they check them out before they ship them. Unfortunately about the only thing you can do is send it back to MRL or find someone else who can fix the problems.
Send that back and take a look at the fathers sword On ryansword.com with available solid brass fittings and true etched 1095 folded steel blades and fully customizable handles for about the same price
Ouch, sorry to hear it arrived with issues. I have the same sword. The deer skulls are actually separate pieces from the rest of the hilt. I know because the one I bought actually had them off completely. At that time I lived close to MRL - so when I visited to get my sword sharpened, they were kind enough to reattach the skulls. So that would be an easy fix. The pommel would drive me nuts, and for that alone I would try to get it exchanged. Definitely take the pictures and video and see what Windlass/MRL say. I have always had good experiences with their customer service. Best of luck!
Tell me about this fathers sword from Ryan sword... Anyone have any experience?
In case my kid still wants to give me a fathers sword. The video cutting the paint can is pretty cool.
I saw some YouTube videos where a guy in the comments mentioned issues with his Ryan sword atlantean. He seemed pretty upset and said that he really wasn't taken care of after reporting the issues.
MRL is at least a stand up company. They will approve the return and refund or exchange. I hate to do it, but probably going to ask for the refund because some internet sleuthing shows several folks having similar issues. Not really sure a new one wouldn't have problems.
I am interested in Ryan sword but I'm reading about some concerning things as well, and wish there was some US distribution centers or vendors maybe in case of an issue.
Having helped design the fathers sword with Ryan steel can tell you its the best constructed one other then Albion on the market. Also the most detailed. Having a triple pin full tang design with a 1095 folded blade with one of the best edge reduction out there. The runes are ground into the blade deeply Im not quite sure how it’s done. The brass fittings are solid brass cast from a mold. The handle can be modified for single hand or two hand lengths. The point of balance is very close to the guard and at 4lbs the lightest one out there also very well balanced that it doesn’t feel heavy in the hand. I think there’s a review on this forum. Also under new management the customer service is extremely good. Everyone that has purchased the fathers sword or the Conan sword has been extremely happy from what I have been told on Facebook. I urge you to do your research and you will be very happy
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.
Aug 30, 2021 23:19:06 GMT
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.
