When I first opened the turd of a box it was shipped in, I was stunned by what I thought was a Cold Steel forgery. So much so that I photographed the sword from several angles and forwarded the pics over to Cold Steel to verify. They were amazingly fast getting back to me and they did confirm this particular sword was indeed one of theirs. Ouch.
The pommel nut sticks past the pommel a good ½", something the pictures do not show. I thought perhaps I had a fluke so I quickly ordered a second "Viking" sword and sadly, it was worse than the first one I purchased. The second one had the pommel nut sticking a ½" or so past the pommel and the hilt (cross guard) was extremely loose.
In closing, the swords will cut. They were both adequately sharp. How long will the swords hold up to cutting and chopping? That would be difficult to guess. Good luck if you decide to purchase one of these. You may want to do a bit more research first.
Product is good quality, though blade is surprisingly dull. Just above a butter knife. Needs professional sharpening. Very disappointed.
Considering a return.
The blade has the feel of good spring steel and has a solid feeling flex. Review of Viking Age swords sometimes talk of the fullered groove down the center of the blade. It is not a blood groove, rather it was designed that way to keep the blade from becoming overly heavy, without much loss of strength. This center groove on the Cold Steel blade appears to me that it was machined in, rather than hammered in during a traditional forging process on the blade. In that regard, I like the wider fullered groove that came with the CAS Hanwei practical viking sword
The packaging is another story. I read the other reviews that described the flimsy packaging material but decided to take a chance. The sword came wrapped in one layer of bubble wrap and encased in a flimsy cardboard box. The box had been taped shut in two spots and the cardboard tore at those spots, leaving one end to flap open and expose the sword. Luckily there was not any damage, but I think that's thanks to the skill of the delivery driver. I am amazed that the Cold Steel company hasn't improved their packaging with all the reviews that are now posted on Amazon.

Nice blade on the sword, very nicely sharpened, but big issue. THE CROSSGUARD IS LOOSE AND RATTLES RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. I haven't struck anything with it. Read morePublished 5 months ago by MN Amazonian

I believe this is a factory second or possibly a blemished item. It's definitely not up to the standards I've seen from Cold Steel as far as fit and finish. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Tony (Northern Wisconsin)
