Valiant Armoury ATrim Sword vs Tinker Pearce are both contenders for the best high performance, low cost long sword on the market today.
Both have been engineered by legends of the industry, and both have a reputation as best of breed.
So which one is the best? Both of these swords have been extensively reviewed and tested by SBG members, you can read a review of the Tinker Peace Long Sword - and the Valiant Armoury Long sword here, and while the Valiant Practical Longsword got 5/5 stars and the Tinker Pearce 4/5, you'be be forgiven for thinking that the Valiant Armory Longsword wins hands down..
But as with all things, it's never quite that simple..
To be able to make the best decision possible, you need to compare them side by side.. So let's try to cut through it all the confusion and get another opinion, that of Veteran SBG reviewer and old school forumite, the legendary RicWilly..!
So there you have it, according to Ric the Valiant Armory cuts better but the Tinker Longsword seems better balanced and is a better thruster.
Having owned both swords myself, I would also suggest the same thing - but add that, at least in my opinion, the Valiant Long Sword LOOKS more attractive..
Overall though, it comes down to personal preference, current pricing - and availability..
