I bought the Cut and Thrust Sword constructed around a Hanwei Tinker Bastard Sword blade. Quoted shipping was reasonable. Sword was shipped within a day. Packaged well and arrived in Canada in perfect condition. Sword matched the description and photos in the listing exactly, with the noted flaws seeming more minor to me than described.

It's a great sword with a good usable grip and excellent balance. I expect I will enjoy it for years to come.
