Has anyone had any experience with this sword? I'm looking into the blade for a project and was hoping someone had some useful information about it.

I haven't seen it in person and so don't have any insight there. I do wonder, however, what they used as a basis for its design.

They had a few of these at the annual sale in April for $75 a piece - I thought about getting one for a project blade. To be honest, I was not overly impressed with it. The crosses on the few they had were slightly bent (perhaps too thin?) and the blade was far too flexible.

Perhaps an effect of the photo.
Note the alignment grip, pommel.
