Performance Review: This sword was a customer's so I did not do any cutting with it. However I did dry handle it quite a bit. It seemed to be a bit blade heavy but not prohibitively so; rather it strikes me as being balanced as a cutting sword rather then a thrusting sword. I would also wear gauntlets if I was going to use this sword for any extended period of time, since the pommel can rub uncomfortably on the hand.

Appearance: Armart appears to excel in the aesthetics department. This sword does not have the decoration of some of their other offerings but it is very cleanly executed. The fittings are nicely done and tightly fitted. The peening of the pommel is very clean. The fullers match on both sides of the sword and are nicely executed with only very minor ripples. All in all a very nicely done piece.
