This is a pretty big sword for the price, and definitely leaning toward fantasy/LARP sensibilities. The edge on it is sub-par, however, and needs a fair amount of work to bring it to an acceptable level of sharpness. The blade tapers to a very thin point, which keeps the blade fairly light, but fairly flimsy as well. I would classify this sword as somehow between a wall-hanger and a useable cutting implement.
