The Lowlander Sword looks more sturdy than the Hero's Warsword.

I realize this is not exactly a high level quality sword but it's supposed to be 5160 tempered steel, I can get it for $269.95.
The sword overall size is 68 1/2 inches with a 48 inch blade and weighs 6 lbs. 14 oz. I was kind of thinking of it as a slaughter all, destroy all, fun sword. But I am wondering if the sword is even worth it?

I was wondering if some of my fellow Knights of the Sword could give me some advice on this one?

Any help, criticism or advice, good or bad is most appreciated!

Thanks Much!

Bob

I have the Hero's Warsword. It bends from it's own weight. But it can still cut pretty good. It came sharp, when I bought it. So I can cut tree branches pretty easily. But it is not safe to use. Because it bends, when being swung. It is pretty sturdy, but bendy as well. I am not sure about the Lowlander Sword though. I have seen videos of it only, it looks as though it doesn't bend like the Hero's Warsword

I have a question to ask.
For the blade on the Lowlander Sword.
Is it like the Hero's Warsword?
The blade is fully sharpened, on the Hero's Warsword.
Is it the same, for the Lowlander Sword?
And, if they say the blade is 48 inches, is it really?
Because I've seen videos of people holding the edge side on their shoulders.
So, the blade is probably 48 inches.
But the edges on the blade, must be only 43 to 44 inches.
Am I right, I don't want a sword like that.

Like many two-handed swords, the Lowlander has a ricasso several inches long: a feature not uncommon for this type of sword.

I was wondering. Do you know if they make both edges fully sharpened? For the Lowlander Sword. And not have a ricasso above both the edges of the blade. Thanks for the reply.

Who are "they"? Do you mean CASI?

I don't keep up on their product offerings. Just look at their web site to see their current lineup. I can't imagine that they would since that would make no logical sense (to me).

The blade is still made the same---double-edged, semi-sharp, with the long ricasso and short fuller. I've only ever held one, but I hope to own one....Nathan....one day....Nathan..... Laughing Out Loud ....You still wanna sell that big-ass sheetrock queen?.............MCM
