Performance Review: This is yet another nice all around performer from the folks at Albion. The sword handles nicely with one hand and is dangerously fast in two. As one would expect with a sword of this type it thrusts well and the point is very easy to control.

Appearance: The Crecy is up to Albions usual high standards of fit and finish. This particular sword was nearly flawless. The blade was nicely finished with no grind marks or ripples. The hilt fittings had no pits or grind marks and the wrap in Albion's "campaign brown" was well executed and tight.

Conclusion: At the price Albion is offering this sword (currently 580 dollars) this sword is a steal. It is an all around nice light bastard sword with some anti-armor potential that manages to look good while being deadly.
