In a word, this sword looks superb. The entire piece feels rock solid, and the aesthetics of the sword are excellent. The blade exhibits no wavering and has smooth, clean lines. The fuller gently flows up the blade, and the polish is very even, almost up to a mirror finish, though not quite, which makes the sword appear majestic without looking like cheap stainless steel knock offs. This is a very lightweight sword, but like so many Viking styled swords, it has a wicked blade presence. The combination of these two factors makes a sword with a very powerful blow that isn't hard to control. Cuts are effortless, easy to control, and highly effective. The mass in the blade near the tip actually seems to propel the sword during a swing. This sword would produce devastating cuts and slashes against historically outfitted warriors. The grip and scabbard, which finishes off the sword nicely, is oxblood-colour suede leather.
