I bought the Hanwei Practical Sidesword and wish that I hadn't. It is clumsy, badly balanced with a strange pseudo colichimarde blade. It is cheap, but still a waste of your money.

I suggest that you spend a little more money and get something from www.darkwoodarmory.com - If you don't want to spend that much more, you can get one of their economy rapiers.
