The ''made in india'' text is rusted in the letters, a stain? on the crossguard, abit of rust on the the scabbard's button. And the edge isin't centered? it dosen't meet the base on the middle.
Now idea how serious those issue are, but it's before the first cleaning and oiling.
But the sword feel very firmly set in it's hilt and the scabbard is very firm in place.
Nice glad it came safe and sound and on time! Not sure what you mean about the edge? Are you talking about the fullers not being fully flush to the center of the blade? If so the fullering not being flush is more or less cosmetic and wont affect the handling or durability of the sword.The rust shouldn't be a big issue a little 1500 or 1000 grit wet dry paper with a little oil will clean those up fast. Looks good in the pics, have you handled it much yet, what's your thoughts on its feel?
More than on time, ordered in the evening. waited a day, arrived the morning after. But waited for a special day to get my hands on it. I just swung abit outside. Nice stabs but the edge aligement is ass, my second swing combo tended to end with the flat side.
Im more worried with the cleaning\oiling I did, hopefully I can save the chamois. Got very oily and worried just cleaning with soap will leave residue when I wipe next.
and my edge, I mean it isin't centered, when seem from the front (toward the edge) it's not centered, whoever shapened it seemed to grind one side much more than the other of one edge.
