Love it! July 14, 2018
Reviewer: Ryanne Benavidez from Prattville, AL United States  
I purchased this sword for a going away gift for my friend. I think he's going to love it. It was very easy to order and the designs (our military PME badge and spiderman logo) are so clear and the whole sword looks great. I will definitely come back for a gift in the future. Thank you so much!

No presentation bag July 7, 2018
Reviewer: Dean Reiser from Winter Garden, FL United States  
When I was presented my Rudis it was presented to me in a decorative burgundy nylon fishnet type bag. The one I recently received didn't come with one. The bag is a really nice touch.
