RADallen Reviewed by on Dec 29, 2015   5 out of 5

Purchased this saber about a month ago for myself. Could not believe the way it looked and felt when I opened the box. Had to do a couple of minor modifications to it but well worth the time. Recommend replacing leather cushioning ring and spraying the the inside of the scabbard with WD40 or liquid wrench (turn upside down on cloth to drain excess). Some minor fileing on scabbard throat to remove rough edges and to make removing and replacing saber smoother. Showed it to my brother in law and now he's ordering one for himself. We are both retired military. Plus I'm ordering a second one for a friend who is also retired miltary.



Bad quality Reviewed by on Jul 16, 2015   2 out of 5

I actually got mine a few years ago. It came and there was no leather wrapped around the handle, the sheath was bent (which mad it hard to get the sword out) and the sword was very, very dull. It is awkward to hold, it feels super heavy and is not balanced



impulse buy Reviewed by Vincent on Jun 04, 2015   2 out of 5

I got this thinking it was gonna be a decent blade it was dull, the scabbard as a heavier curve then the blade, and the blade was jammed into the scabbard. I was dissapointed to see it was made in india and not the US.



Decent Reviewed by Kirk on Apr 26, 2015   3 out of 5

Something I noticed a little after I got over my original hype about buying a sword was the the balance point is about eight inches from the top of the hilt. I tried swinging it to test it, and the balance point where it is made it rather uncomfortable and awkward, also making my wrist tire quickly. It doesn't have a distal taper, but if it did it would be lighter and more agile in the hand. As a wall-hanger, it's good, and the assembly is pretty sturdy.



"Super ""Blade""" Reviewed by Cowboy Bob on Apr 21, 2015   5 out of 5

The sword is super! Beautifully made, and I've had it etched for my boss with his military dates of service, grade, and name. It's amazing. Thanks for the quick shipping too!



poor quality Reviewed by spade on Jan 02, 2015   4 out of 5

poor quality, unexpected from BUDK. grip was not attached/aligned with the guard, sloppy construction. have been trying to return for 7 days, poor customer service.



Authentic Look Reviewed by Con on Dec 05, 2014   4 out of 5

A must for any serious collector. You can expect to $60.00 or more elsewhere for the same sword. I like the etching on the blade. Great for reenactment.



Very Impressive Reviewed by William Felix Jr on Jun 06, 2014   5 out of 5

Much larger than I expected, much heavier than I expected. Im very please with the quality and the great price. I cannot imagine how they can make them and sell them so inexpensively. I look forward to proudly display this sword with the rest of my collection. Definitely a must have.



A Sword for the ages Reviewed by Mark on Jun 05, 2014   5 out of 5

This true to spec replica is spot on. Mine was purchased for me by my wife a couple of Christmases ago. On our recent trip to Gettysburg, I brought it up to Little Roundtop, where the 20th Maine Stood, and gave it a thrust into the ground to "anoint it" in the ground of the warriors. Rugged, Sturdy, and now well capable of combat (personal sharpening), It stands at the ready. This is another SUPER Bud-K deal, that you shouldn't pass up. if you "run out of ammo in the apocalypse , you'll need something..... & I've got mine.



Cavalry Sword Reviewed by Dan Richardson on Jun 01, 2014   4 out of 5

I was pleased the minute I removed this sword from the box. For the price, the quality is pretty good. The sword looks good and should display well. There may be better detailed swords out there, but they will be much more in price than this sword. If you're looking for a not too expensive Cavalry design sword that's pretty well made, and looks good.....I say BUY ONE!!
