A relly nice, well built sword. If I had written this a year ago I would have no complaints, but, I am wrighting it now. It gets all rusty a year after you have it, I guess because it is not stainless, still it is well worth the money.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

Me and my dad have always liked American history, and among our collection I am happy to have acquired this sword. The sword came oiled and dull, I found no defects when inspecting it. The sword is heavy and very sturdy. After swinging it a few times through the air the blade kept its alignment and did not wiggle at the base of the blade like cheep swords do. Very good value for price.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I received this as a gift from a person who knew of my enjoyment of Civil War re-enactments and my hobby collecting replicas of that era. Many of the comments complain that the sword is sent dull. In fact, Civil War swords were presented dull. It was up to the officers or non-coms to have them sharpen per their wishes. One officer might wish a sharp point for stabbing, while another would want a full sharpening for slashing. I'm not a fan of stainless steel in knives and certainly not one for swords. As in authentic the steel rusted and discolored quickly and needed the tender care a soldier might show to his sweet heart. In those times mineral oil, whale oil, olive oil and other lubricants were used to keep the sword safe from rush. One anecdotal story relates how an officer made a quite a bit of money polishing his brother officer's swords. He had originally been a jeweler and for some inexplicably reason had brought his gem polishing accouterments with him. The metal sheath is nicely put together, though mine had a slight ding in it. No matter. It gave it character. Withdrawing the sword from the sheath has a satisfying metal on metal sound. As I doubt I will be in any cavalry charges I have no plan to sharpen my sword. It will hang on my wall and will be part of my dress uniform next Christmas at the San Francisco Charles Dickens Christmas Faire.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I bought this for a 12-year old grandson for Christmas. He covets my great grandfather's Civil War sword but that's not going to happen soon. This sword is a true bargain for the money and very well done, I was very surprised when I took it out of the box. It looks great, the quality is great and the appearance is authentic.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I bought this to be a display, wall hanger, along with my Cavalry Hats. For that purpose it is perfect. It came well packed and covered in protective grease. The handle is wire wrapped, black leather over wood and the Brass Hilt / Handguard has a nice shape to it.The blade is good, carbon steel. Mine is not sharpened but as a display will be no problem. Now if I can just find a Left Handed model. If you are looking for a Civil War, Replica Cavalry Saber for use as a wall hanger or ceremonial use, I would certainly recommend this one. The price is right too.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

When I got the sword, I realized it had no leather on the grip!! Just wood with wire wrapped. Also, it had an acorn nut on the butt of the grip, which i had not seen on the originals. Rather than send it back, I removed the acorn nut and grip and wrapped my own black leather on the handle.Then re-wrapped the wire. I also removed the acorn nut from the butt and now it looks right. I don't need it to be sharp so thats o.k. Overall, a decent sword for the price, but not what I thought I was getting!!!Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

Rating4 star4
I always wanted a civil war sword and thought this replica looked close enough. It is made in India. Mine has a nice wire wrapped leather handle on it along with a sold brass hand guard. I always look for solid brass rather than brass plating. The only thing I was a bit disappointed in was there was no edge on it. That just wouldn't do for me and would have been much too much work to hand hone it. So brought it to a knife sharpening shop in West Eugene and had them put it on a belt sander which is needed to remove a lot of metal to get an edge. Now that it is nice and sharp I am happy with it. I also treated the blade with Birchwood Casey's sheath anti-rust oil to make sure the carbon steel blade doesn't form any rust. I recommend this sword for a civil war wall hanger. Cool!Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I had been watching these for a while, and picked one up when it was on sale. I was pleasantly surprised. I had seen one several years ago, and the brass casting for the hand guard on my sample was much smoother than the last one I had seen. The sword was shipped out of the scabbard, and did not fit well, as the scabbard's curved did not match it exactly. I have a retaining wall made out of 4x4s stacked up log cabin style. I was able to put the scabbard between the 4x4s on the retaining wall and adjust (bend) the scabbard to the correct curve with a little trial and error. the faux leather on the handle is nicked in one spot, as soon as I find the right leather I will remove the naugahidee, and replace it with leather. I will do some minor reshaping of the wooden handle at that time to improve the look of the fit fit, and the feel of the handle. there may be nicer models out there, but the ones I have seen cost more than twice the normal retail of this sword, and easily four times the sale price I paid for mine. So in spite of the aforementioned easily repaired flaws I believe it is an excellent value, a good wall hanger right out of the box, the design is solid, the balance feels good. I have not decided if I will leave the blade as is for safety. The edge is manufactured in such a way it is safe, but it would be easy to bring it to dangerous sharpness with a dremil The cross section of the blade seems right, and the blade is sturdy and straight with a full tang that is narrowed and threaded toward the end, making the entire weapon very sturdy. This is a good value for the price.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
