Scottish Court Sword

From our friends over at Cas/Hanwei

Was watching the count of Monte Cristo so figured I'd have a look through the site see what was what and found this. I quite like it would be interested to know what you lot think of it. Here's the spiel
Quick and elegant describe the Scottish Court Sword (SH1214). Replicating an original dating from the 1730’s and belonging to an officer in Prince Charles Edward Stuart’s army at Culloden, the finely chiseled silver-plated hilt and three-edged hollow ground blade exemplify the consummate skill of the swordsmiths of the period.

Authentic replica of a period piece
High-carbon steel blade
Silver plated steel fittings

BLADE LENGTH: 31“
HANDLE LENGTH: 7”
OVERALL LENGTH: 38 1/8“
WEIGHT: 1lb 15oz
BOX HEIGHT: 42”
BOX WIDTH: 5”
Retailing direct from them at $299 which works out at £159. So what do we think?

Can't say I particularly like it, it seems to have something "missing" if you catch my drift. If it was me I'd opt for one of the hanwei back/broadswords over that. Of course if it's the design of sword that's got your interest take a look at the sideswords CF has on offer (on AT blades) they're a lot more elegant and much more to my liking. Of course they're a lot more expensive too but personally I'd prefer to save up/splash out on a really nice sword than buy two or three cheaper swords I didn't like a much.

I don't like it, but that's only because those type of swords do nothing for me.

Looks good to me. Only the picture to go by, but the price looks right, too.

I'm beginning to sound like Temp's echo but those were my initial thoughts too,even though it's not my kinda thing as yet,I can fully understand why others would like it.
