Hello

Has anyone handled the nielo katzbalger sword? This model to be exact
http://www.kultofathena.com/product.asp?item=...lger+Sword

The handle looks very nice, not sure about the rest. According to KoA the blade is pretty thick. Also what's a quick place to get a scabbard now?

Thanks

In my experience, I've noticed the Nielo swords tend to have very nice hilts, but the blades can be hit or miss.

Hi Ian

I read your review on the langes messer, it was a very nice sword. Thanks for the reply.

I agree with Ian after having owned 3 swords from this maker.

I I have received the nielo katzbalger, it is a nice little sword with very good handling, but the blade needs sharpening. The hilt however is awkward as the guard wobbles around no matter how I try to peen it. For the price nielo asked for, I expected a.little nicer hilt construction. But this can be fixed so good job nielo. Now I just need to find someone who can make a scabbard for it.

Koa listed it as 2.8lb and balance out at 5
Mine is 2.4lb balanced at 3.6
