Review by Josh Furrate of ORDO, Baton Rouge, LA

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.

5 of 5 An affordable and no-frills sword of rare type April 6, 2020
Reviewer: Kane Shen from West Vancouver, BC Canada  
The type XVIIIc sword made by VB doesn't concern with close look to historical originals, yet it captures the spirit. Though coming with a huge secondary bevor and not particularly sharp, it cuts well. The good handling makes it maneuverable then other XVIIIc replicas (such as RK Euro III) of this price range. The basic geometry that makes it an amazing cutter is there, you can touch up the blade to give it a finer edge. The finish isn't flawless. The blade has a few noticeable black spots near the base. While the central ridge is crisp, it wanders off the center in the middle. The peen has many rough hammer marks, so much so that it's almost stylistic. The tip is completely blunt, due to it being a competition cutter, but the geometry is just wrong for its type, which should taper gracefully all the way towards the tip. I want to see these aspects improved, but then it would almost drive up the price point significantly. At $350, you get every penny's worth if you want a great cutter.

5 of 5 My first Sharp December 25, 2019
Reviewer: Jenn Blum from Sacramento Freifechter  
This was a great experience; Christian was immensely helpful in guiding me through this purchase, and I felt all the way through he was most concerned with me being happy with the product, vs just making a sale. It's an absolutely beautiful weapon, is well balanced, and it just feels like it WANTS to cut. I could not be more delighted with my purchase and overall experience!
