Good quality of manufacture and a nice sword but extremely blunt (4mm radius on edge, 10mm on point) and lacks a scabbard. You have to buy a leather scabbard which looks ok but is really cavernous allowing the sword to flop around. Hence only 4 stars.
Very unhappy with the halberd, handle wobbly, not fitted properly, nail broken, screw doesn't screw into the top half, not long enough to get any form of contact to hold the two pieces together. Not happy, 1/5However, i love the Epaulettes. strong, sturdy, they look beautiful and they are functional. Such a difference from the very dis-satisfactory halberd. 5/5
Really good quality for the money - solid, well finished, and a beautiful flawless blade. Too scary to show my friends! (Windlass need to put more effort into the scabbard though - it does not match the quality of the gladius at all, which is a shame.
