The Cobra Steel Lakonia has met or perhaps exceeded all expectations. It was purchased for my son for Christmas and he loves it. The quality is superb. Solid and ready. The sheath with belt loop is sturdy and constructed appropriately to fit the blade.
Definitely worth the purchase for the $. Now I know why it was on back order. It's popular for a reason.

When I ordered this blade it was on back order for a couple of months, but it was well worth the wait! Took this sword for a "use" test run on compressed cardboard along with several other swords and was thoroughly impressed! It slashed almost as good as a standard machete with stabbing penetration that was unmatched. The rubbery handle allowed absolutely no slip at any time. The hits were absolutely solid with no vibration. I have taken this blade on hiking trips and it works wood wonderfully. I am wholly convinced that this blade cannot be beat for the price and highly recommend it as a survival blade. For those that fixate on sheaths - it is very heavy, riveted leather so if you are like me and splash through rain and rivers you might want to keep it oiled to prevent drying and cracking over time. It is also very tight and will hold water so if you do splash be sure to keep it emptied out. I can understand why the Mediterranean peoples favored this sword type for hundreds of years.

An absolutely perfectly functional, and authentic Spartan shores, sort for what I paid for it. I was expecting much, much less even the leather that the sheik is made out of his top quality and historically accurate! Comes razor-sharp from the factory. I thought I might have to touch it up, but after I got a hold of it, I decided it was already hair popping perfectly balanced. The group is well made! And has a nice tough run a rubbery texture to it! I can definitely understand with the geometry of the blade and the way it slices through things, and that he's that it would be to sharpen it. Why the Spartans chose this sword over the co-ops is there's only one thing that I would warn you about purchasing this it is definitely high carbon becomes in packing grease get the packing grease off before you insert it into the. She's and immediately heated up with a hairdryer and apply thin layer of oil to the entire blade, I failed to do this in three days later had a few spots already start to show up on it so it is definitely high carbon steel above to the spots out applied oval and have had no further problems. It is beautifully balanced and perfectly functional!!!

Great sword, especially for the price. I got this as a graduation present, and I couldn't be happier.
