The Knights Lion Crest Sword

by Michael

QUESTION: Will you do a review of this sword? It says functional; it has a beautiful design and I would like to know if it is all that it says it is. I am a member of the SBG Community and I trust your reviews. Thanks for your time.

ANSWER: Hi Michael,

Personally I'm not really a fan of Ritter Steel. I won't go into the reasons why here - but in short, there really just not my cup of tea...

Considering the number of developments for medieval swords in the last year or so (i.e. Valiant Armoury, Hanwei, Gen 2 and even Windlass) they are a bit outdated too...

I won't rule out trying this piece, however apologies - but I won't be rushing out to get it either if you know what I mean... ;-)

- Paul

The Lion Crest
by: Michael

Hey Paul,

No problem. I get it. You're busy with your Asian projects and running around cutting with Lancelot. I can respect that.

I must say though that The Lion Crest (LC) is one of my favorite single handers. I broke two DSAs on some cutting I was doing (not an easy task though I wasnt trying), cut with the LC, and the blade didnt even wobble.

They are made in the Philippines and those guys CAN MAKE SWORDS, I'll tell you. I also got it professionally sharpened and man it cuts through milk jugs like butter.

My recommendation: pick it up

Ritter Steel

Okay Paul, What's up with Ritter Steel. You tell us community folks you don't like them but you don't say why. Well "Why" is the main reason we 'sword-tramps' click on the Sword Buyers Guide in the first place and you,sir,are the host.
Please explain to us why Ritter Steel is not your cup of tea and lord let it be a an actual manufacture quality issue rather than a dealership or marketing complaint.
