A fine sword Reviewed by Joshua Keller on Jun 16, 2017   5 out of 5

I bought this sword for use in role play. It is as advertised. I can't fault the blade at all. The finish is really nice, it looks like a rough grey forge finish. It has e beautiful ridge in the center. Quite solid! It's 1/4 inch thick and 1/2 thick at the ridge. It's not overly sharp, but that can be amended. As advertised, it has a full tang, but it also has a bolt welded on to the end so that the rear portion of the guard can screw on. My only real concern was that the guard was hollow. Each piece of the guard is made of two pieces of metal that snap together. As heavy as the blade is, this makes the sword very blade heavy. I took it as a challenge. I cut guards of the same shape as the originals, but slightly thicker, ground them to shape, gave them a basic finish, a solid edgbreak, and sandblasted them to to give them a flat grey matte finish. Then I drilled holes and milled out the spaces in between so that I had cut out a space in each guard for the tang to fit through. Then I hammered them on with metal shims to ensure a tight fit. I epoxied the wooden grip on with JB Weld and took off the fake leather wrap, replacing it with real leather. Again, I can't fault the blade, it seems to be the real McCoy. At worst, this sword was a very enjoyable project for those who want a sword "kit". And at best, it is a sturdy, well made replica. Would totally recommend.



Nice! Reviewed by Patrick Tolen on Jun 16, 2017   5 out of 5

Just received this sword. Massive 1/4" thk blade 25" long. Has a 1/8" rib running down each side, which is where they get the 1/2" from. Weighs 4 lbs (for comparison, my Katana weighs 2.5 lbs), with most of the weight being at the end of the blade of course. It's like a long axe. Mine had a little handle wobble, as the pommel is held on with a nut. Mostly full tang, except at the end where there's threaded rod for the nut. I just popped the pommel end cover off and tightened the nut and now it's solid. The wrap needs to be replaced for sure. It's 'sharp', but because it's so thick it's more like an axe-kinda sharp instead of sword. The handle is big enough to get another hand on it to assist, if needed, in a big swing. It's more like wielding an axe or bat than a sword, but if the zombies attack I think this would be the sword for the job. Looks good on the wall too :-)



Awesome Sword Reviewed by Richard Chapman on May 27, 2017   5 out of 5

I'm very happy with it, even though it's a 1/4" thick and not 1/2"... also the length of my sword is just under 33"...Bad-ass Sword Thank you.



Too classic Reviewed by Glenn Taylor on Jan 21, 2017   5 out of 5

I had the pleasure of playing with one of these recently, and I gotta tell ya, this is one tough-ass blade. The one draw back, and it's a huge one , is that the undersized handle seriously handicaps the user. I know, it's a replica of an old world classic, but ergonomics were not in play then. If BudK could make this baby in a two handed open guard grip version, it would be a BIG hit. But for now, it's a good price for a strong blade, even if it is seriously lacking in the grip department.



Great Exercise Reviewed by on Dec 04, 2016   5 out of 5

no, seriously, it is... I bought one a couple years ago... I swing it around a lot, I bash it into a post a lot... (replaced the handle a long time ago by wrappign the full tang with chord, ductape, chord, ductape, chord and then medical tape... it's crude, but the tang is more than long enough to be the handle) suffice to say it does build your bicep, shoulder, and chest muscles. It doesn't build bulky muscle, but rather leaner muscle... I do recommend getting a large, heavy shield for your left, else you'll find one arm bigger than the other.



Very Nice! Reviewed by on Aug 05, 2016   5 out of 5

No problem wielding this sword with one hand. It looks very nice on my wall too. The forward weight alone makes it very useful, even if dull. Plus you can repurpose the steel if needed.



Awesome sword Reviewed by shaun bersch on Jun 19, 2016   5 out of 5

This sword is heavier than most of my other swords, now we know why the Spartans were all so ripped. The only this wrong is the handle. It tends to wobble when swinging this sword. A bit unnerving considering how heavy the blade is. But this blade is worth the money.



Awesome REPLICA Reviewed by on May 22, 2016   5 out of 5

Sword is as advertised. I don't understand the ignorance of buyers who think this sword is to have modern characteristics.I don't care how many swords you have bought in the past, if you want moderrn buy modern. This replicas is great as advertised.



Massive heavy-duty sword! Reviewed by Robert Franks on May 11, 2016   5 out of 5

This sword looks as if it were an original, forged from Spartan Steel.... Beautiful replica. It will hang with my other Spartan weapons with pride. Ya, the handle is a little loose, but it's still functional. I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of buying it.... I also liked Kevin Wells review.... Thanks again to budk and staff!!



Close to my original Reviewed by Kevin Wells on Mar 05, 2016   5 out of 5

I won an original Spartan blade at an auction for $130,000 that's in near mint condition. Family had it for 9 centeries I think. Bought your to have a pair. On display no-one knows the difference. Handling it's obvious. The original weighs 10-15 more pounds. Both swing perfect?? Saw complaints anout your swords weight, they wouldn't have lived long around Greeks, Spartans, or Vikings. I've been making Damascus blade weapons for 30+ years, and I've got dozens of original swords from 1000s of years till WWl. Copys from your company. Splendidly made. Thank you.
