I'm not a big fan of medieval looking swords, but the broadsword is nice.

the viking sword looks nice, the other swords blade geometry looks a little odd (from the pics) to me, not historically correct at least as far as the hollow ground parts of the blades are concerned im not 100% on this but it just does not look right to me the blades look like thety will be heavy and poorly balanced but saying that i would have to handle them to be sure (or get opinon from someone who has)

kind regards

Hmm, cant expect anything more for less than £100 to be honest, but for the average display sword it's still probably very decent. I still want the Gladdy :D

Got to agree with Larn'.

They've got to be a good start for anyone who likes this kind of sword.

In no way would I ever take someones name from a well written review like that I'm afraid we do not allow other sites addys to be posted here so I'm afraid that link has to go but we will of course leave the name.
