the main difference [In reply to] Can't Post

in production vs traditional is the fact that steel sourced nowdays is much better and they cut this from a steel blank to form the basic blade shape. So some of the manufacturing process is different but the sword performs and feels true to historical type. I had one of the models of sword seen here and it is simply an incredible sword.
