The pictures do Not do it Justice. This sword is amazingly well crafted. Ordering from China can be completely hit-or-miss. The roaring tiger part of the sword is really really pretty really pretty and it is also solid metal. The pommel of the sword is also solid metal. The blade is Dang near a quarter inch thick. The only possible con for this sword Is that it is heavy. My only actual complaint is that the leather wrapping on the sword is in places a bit loose. This is a 10.
Beautiful sword and comfortable but wish it was cheaper
