Question about swords from handmadesword.com
QUESTION: Thank you for your time in taking this email and putting on such an awesome website. I have learned much from the time I spent on this there.
I have twin 4 month old girls at home so money for my wife and is very tight. I have found a few swords from a place called handmadesword.com. All of the swords there look decent enough but I would like a professionals opinion. Below are some Damascus steel swords that were in my price range. Would you please review them and tell me what you think. Thank you again and please keep up the good work.
For these two blades, well - I would recommend saving your money. Handmadesword.com has a mixed reputation, but a Damascus steel sword at this price range is very likely to have some major problems due to the speed at which it is churned out to be able to meet the target price...
Personally, I would recommend you stick with something like Musashi Swords, still not amazing quality - but certainly better overall and the recommended sellers will not let you down if there is a problem.
Hope this helps.
