The swords are a mix of historical accuracy and user friendliness and are definitely worth the price. The swords are delivered with luxury scabbard.

As with their Roman swords Deepeeka seem to have updated some of their other models too. The grip is shorter than stated and far better for it. The leather wrap on the handle is done to a different and possibly more accurate pattern, different to the picture on the website and again, better for it. The scabbard as usual for Deepeeka is a work of art in itself and well worth the money alone. The cons, and they are minor. Some heavy machine polishing marks remain on the pommel and blade. I will enjoy polishing these out by hand myself. There are some marks on the scabbard where it was held in a vice or similar during manufacture. Again these will polish out. The sword is fantastic value for money and looks far better than the current photo on the website. I would recommend Deepeeka swords to anyone interested in value for money replicas and re-enactment swords. Deepeeka have been continually responding to customer feedback and now produce a fantastic product for the money. Celticwebmerchants provided their usual good service and packaging. This is my third sword from them and hopefully there will be more.
