Here is the Sword (Secret Agent Sword 12.99 Yikes)
QUESTION: If you have seen the sword you might have thought, "Hmm doesn't look to alfully bad, lets check out the price." BOM BOM BOOOOM people begin shreiking and running in the opposite direction at the price; $12.99. Fake! Steel cutout! But that doesn't seem to be the whole story. I too was shocked at the low price but i couldn't help but look at some reviews. Not bad actually one guy from Yahoo.com says it wasn't bad. People who replied called him an idiot but its a full tang sword so i can't throw the idea completly away... you can dream... to an extent. The store reviews I found met the same thing. TRUESWORDS said it wa a great sword they actually made it a featured sword. One Wallace Tse stated:
"Great sword. Great design. Great Price. Only complaint I have is that it wasn't that sharp, but was easily fixed with the sharpener I bought."
So what do you guys think? I'm on an extremly tight budget. (Age 15 can get that way i guess) Not only that but my father never really thought swords were anything more than a hall decoration, if that! well I ranted waaaay too long please be honest with me.
ANSWER: Well, it's not bad for the money - not much more than a glorified machete.
It would be ok for light usage, but remember stainless steel is often not a great choice as it can be brittle.
I must admit, it looks pretty cool - but if you do get it, don't go banging on it like I do in my destructive test reviews...! ;-)
Hope this helps.
