I must be honest when I say I dont know a great deal about these swords, and most of them dont look like they're up to much, but I've been looking at his British Light Cavalry Sabre and as its around £65 and the Cold Steel one I've ordered is £220 I'm sure you can tell the obvious difference in quality.

anyway here's a few pics

It's sold as full tang and carbon steel but for £65 I have serious doubts over its quality. Anyone wish to educate me on this matter?

He also does this Roman Gladious for just £60 which I'm seriously considering getting as I dont have a Gladdy in my collection

I prefer the Glad to the sabre...

Sabre blade is a nice design but the fittings scream "garage days" to me...

(I know you'll get that reference Larn... ;))

Blade on the sabre looks disgustingly crap compared to the cold steel one too
