Does anyone have any experience with the Cold Steel Cinquedea.

I can't find any real reviews and am interested in any hands on knowledge as to quality and handling.

Thanks!!

I handled one at a Dallas gun/knife show about a year ago. It seemed pretty sturdy, and darn sure sharp. But, they wanted about a hundred bucks too much for it. I *very gently* laid it back on the table. Laughing Out Loud I've thought about getting one a time or two, but haven't committed yet. I'd say go for it. It's even nicer looking in person.

I don't know how you feel about buying from Amazon.com, but they have them for $119 with free shipping. That's cheaper than KoA, but you don't have the quality assurance. There are several reviews that sound pretty positive. For that price, I may give it a shot myself. Happy ......McM

I buy from Amazon fairly often and have never had a problem with anything purchased. The products are the same the variables are price and shipping time. If they come directly to you from outside the US there can be an extended wait.

Not a review per se, and no comments on handling, but Medieval Review has an unboxing and initial impressions video you might want to check out.

The entire video is of Thomas unboxing several unrelated pieces from Cold Steel.

There are two relevant parts for you:
1. Initial unboxing and first impressions (3 mins)
2. Brief revisiting after cleaning off the shipping grease (1 min)

Again, not a review, but a chance to see the sword in hand and hear first impressions.

I've bought from them several times with only one bad experience, which was no fault of theirs. I just got screwed around by a shifty company, and Amazon gave me a full refund....no questions asked. This particular dagger is sold through Amazon directly, so I figure they will send a good product. The one bad review it got was from a fellow that just got a lemon from the start. I can't see that being a regular occurrence with the other *very positive* reviews. Happy ....McM
