from South Bend, IN United States
I'll just cut straight to the nitty gritty bits: I submitted my order on the 11th of March and received it on April 24th. Upon setting the package down I noticed one sword stuck through the bottom of the box by several inches. One sword also has a rather pronounced set which I have spent considerable time attempting to correct. Performance is unaffected, and the masks, gloves, and fingertip protectors have no noticeable defects and are well made.
Both swords weigh in at 2lb. 12oz. as opposed to the 2lb. 10oz. listed on the site. Seeing as both are identical in that respect, I consider that more of a feature than a defect.
While attempting to correct the set I was impressed with the flexible yet rigid nature of the sword, which carries over into form practice and sparring very well. These are very faithful training tools, from the balance down to the point of percussion. I do not foresee either breaking in the future, and am satisfied with the product.
