Design: Overall everyone agreed that the design was sleek and
properly done with Historical pieces in mind. The blade geometry was on point.
This was confirmed by RJ and Phillip Martin, both who’s knowledge of Oakshott
is extensive. Everyone, including myself, love the handle length as is. As most
sharps are too small, this one was perfect for almost anyone to handle. It has
a nice weight and really wants to move. The pommel design was also rather
loved. Though a few folks feel it was a bit too pommel weighted, I don’t really
feel it’s a negative concern.
The blade cuts really well, haha. I mean there many variables
to cutting mechanics and so forth but, it certainly wants to cut. While I think
it’s really good for all basic cuts and double mats, I do think that the weight
and momentum make it a bit slow for some fancier cuts. Even still I highly
recommend it for people who are wanting to compete in cutting. Others also
agreed on that point as well as good club cutting sword.
