Outstanding reproduction for the price.Review by Andrew

Outstanding reproduction for the price. Nice solid feel. I just love the business like design of this classic weapon. I understand the French considered this weapon barbaric because of the type of slashing rather than thrusting wounds it caused. Delivery to NZ was super fast. Very happy purchaser.
