I have ordered a german falchion from them before and it was the kind where the pomel screwed onto the sword. wouldn't have been so bad but the pomel was not circular so when tightning it got out of place and was cocket at an angle that sometimes hit my wrist.

who has good prices on Quality battle ready swords?

pretty expensive.
Most of the ones you are talking about are in 1000 range. Real ones are in the 10-15k range
here is one place.

I have seen there stuff in person at one of those fairs a few years back. Very nice quality, but very pricey.

When I get to the point where I have disposable income that is really disposable, I think I'd like to try a few of the swords produced by Cold Steel.

I have several weapons from these guys. Everything is forged and comes with high praise from R. Ewart Oakeshott (perhaps the foremost expert on medieval weapons and armor).

Bugeii (sp?) makes soem nice Japanese swords, very useable


otherwise I might buy Cold Steel weapons just for beater blades, though their shovel is more than useable

The Paul Chen swords are "authentic" in manufacture, at least, the upper models are. They're
made in the traditional manner using modern steel technologies, and they are entirely suitable
for actual combat....not that you really want to get into that.

They're not replicas. They're real. They're combat ready. That's a very big difference vs. show replicas.

Thanks CMJohnson, I was under the impression they made their higher end swords, and I thought this thread was about useable swords, not just show pieces....... My mistake sorry

Swords are cool, just don't let anyone see you with one....might think you're a ren-fest homo.
