I tested blade strength against a tree stump using moderate force needed to separate a "zombie's" arm. blade broke about an inch or so below the crossbar within the handle. Disappointed but not heartbroken would rather find out in testing rather than when I really needed it. Removed the pieces of the grip to get at the tang and saw that it had broken at a weld. Other than the weld, it would have been quite adequate for any appropriate use. I used a metal cutting blade on my table saw to continue the tang a few inches down the blade (lost all the serration in the process),filed and fitted as needed and reassembled the handle. It's about 7 inches shorter now but it passes the 'tree stump' test. The pommel is aluminum so drilling out the steel pin was a bit of a challenge. xFilled in the damage with a metal paste and painted it with black insigne paint. Quite a nice tool now. Overall length is now 21" blade length is 15"

I love this sword, it has a US 1942 on the blade, KA-BAR looking handle, nice sharp blade. But the two things I don't like about it is I wanted a longer blade and a better sheath like leather or stronger material.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I loved the smart military look of this blade but I discovered it is ONLY FOR LOOKS. The tang of the blade is welded at one inch from the hilt and here was almost no penetration of the weld and after a few taps on a log in the fire it just snapped.Would you recommend this to a friend? No

I really like this and it's definitely wickedly sharp! I just wonder if this was an actual military weapon because when I did a search of USMC weapons I could find no mention of it. Still glad to have it in my collection!Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

Are you kidding me?! This sword is 30 bucks and awesome. When I got mine my friend liked it so much I gave it to him and ordered myself another one. The metal is super corrosion resistant, though a bit soft. Sharpens easy with an AccuSharp.

Wish it was a little longer, like a sword. It's only a little longer than a machete. Still nice for the price, and sharp! No regrets.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
