Probably Deepeeka's best workReview by Alex

If you're familiar with Deepeeka's swords you probably know the quality isn't usually the best. Well, they've certainly made some amazing improvements with their stage combat line.
The scabbard is surprisingly high quality and holds the blade well. The pommel is peened (a massive improvement on previous Deepeeka blades) albeit slightly underweight. However the sword still feels relatively well balanced, although not perfect when used as a one handed arming sword. With your second hand on the pommel the sword handles beautifully.

The blade itself is a good shape for living history/stage combat/handling, however the point and edge of the blade is not rounded enough to be used safely in reenactment.

All in all an excellent sword for display or handling, and a brilliant price for people looking to get into the hobby. (Posted on 12/08/2022)

The sword resembles an early medieval sword if you don't really care about sir William marshal. It looks and is very accurate, has protective foam in the scabbard, brass rings for the belt mount, very good centre of balance. Fantastic for display, a good all round sword. Recommended highly!!
