A central place to talk about weapons and armour, as it relates to your kit. This is where you show it of or talk about making it. Discussing the relative merits of types of weapons goes in the WMA section.

I'm torn about even sharing this, as at this price I have no idea how anyone actually making this is earning a fair wage. Nor can I comment on quality given it is a new product and I've no familiarity with the brand. However, if you're looking for a longsword with a scabbard and you have less than $200 to spend... well then here's an option for you.

That does look a little too good to be true.....?

It looks similar to the one that I just bought from KoA before Christmas, for approximately the same price:

Not a bad blade for a beginner, or someone like myself who really only uses one as window dressing, and isn't an expert.

You can bet on loose-fitting hilt parts and leather that resembles furniture upholstery.

But yes, that's quite the low price!

If nothing else it could be a good base for a customization project.
