I received the sword and am very happy with it overall. My main issue is that there are metal shavings in the scabbard that have scratched the sword when taken out or put back in. I removed the first one I found but a couple weeks later when showing the sword to some friends I found another shaving had worked its way up, lodged in the wood and scratched the sword again. This is quite upsetting.
Very helpful. Got emailed back quick looking forward to buying more swords already ordered my second one looking for a few more for family members if it goes as smoothly as the first one I will be ordering a lot more.
