Opinions on swords from Poshland

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience from purchasing from poshland. I have been eyeing a few swords from their website such as "Sw-314-B" "SW-99" and "SW-305"

However I have not found the heart to follow through with the purchase from the lack of reviews. I love the look of damascus that is the reason of my interest in Poshland swords. If anyone could find any information regarding their trustability and performance of their swords it would help tremendously.

Here's some info

There was a discussion on our forum here about this about a year ago - it was actually about their knives, but much of the info and feedback is fairly transferrable and gives you some unbaised opinions.

First impressions
by: Pinoy

Well, finally found the heart and decided to purchase a small 25 inch sword from poshland (Sw-149).
The sword itself came well oiled inside a plastic bag which was sheathed in the leather scabbard. The sword is well fitted inside the hilt with no rattles and is peened at the end. The pommel and guard is indeed made of folded steel. The blade itself is also made of folded steel. The site says it is made of 1095/15n20 but I don't know for sure. As for the HRC a file didn't seem to scratch the blade, I don't have any other way of testing. For a first impression it seems to be well made and is artistically beautiful. I haven't however done any cutting/abusive testing. So I cannot say How well it would hold up. For being only $180 I do believe it to be well of a bargain and would recommend it to others. Cheers

Blade:19 in.
Handle:6 in.
Total length: 25 in.
Material: folded steel ?(1095/15N20)?

Poshland 25" sword
by: Mundin


I purchased that same sword on Amazon a few months ago. I must say, I am very impressed with it. I bought one of their daggers back in July, and though it has several imperfections, functionally is has been great. That led me to buy the sword you mentioned. It came the same way you mentioned; well wrapped and oiled. It was also quite sharp.

I have turned it on a dying birch tree in my backyard, and have been impressed with how sturdy it is. It cuts through 1/2-1" thick branches with a straight, hard cut, and the blade doesn't really show any damage. I use Frog Lube CLP from my local knife store to protect it, and am still really enjoying the sword. I can't speak for Poshland's other products besides this sword and my dagger, but I'm actually pretty impressed at the quality for the price.

I love the look of Poshland swords. But they scratch test less than RC 40. If you want a decorative wall hanger they are awesome. But do not use for LARP!
