Review of: 1840 Ames NCO Sword

I was undecided between this sword and another but when I saw that Windlass was now offering the M1840 NCO sword with a leather sheath that did it.  I do not like steel scabbards.  It appears that I made a good decision as it handles well being fast and nimble.  My biggest issue is in the manner in which Windlass chose to add the nomenclature to the ricasso.  I had fully expected it to be stamped but instead it is printed on.  Nicely done but printed, I can feel the raised lettering and no doubt in time will wear off, if I don’t accidently use something that will dissolve it first.  For a complete review see my review on SBG https://sbg-sword-forum.forums.net/thread/56791/windlass-new-m1840-sword-5000836?page=1

Review of: 1840 Ames NCO Sword

I was debating whether to buy the #500350 M1840 NCO Sword or one from another company.  When I saw that Windlass had put new clothes on their old #500350, namely a leather sheath, and called it #500836 and briefly offered it at a 15% discount I jumped at it.  The leather sheath was the selling point.  Well, that and the statistics, principally the weight and balance point also helped.  The sword is nimble, fast, and easily controlled.  The diameter of the grip is a trifle small for my size 8 hand but easily manageable.  A glove gives me a better fit.  It comes without a washer but I made one from an old leather slingshot pouch without difficulty.  The blade is a thrusting blade but after putting a convex razor sharp edge on it, it cuts the traditional soft targets well.  The nomenclature on the ricasso was disappointing as it is printed on the surface where it is subject to wearing off or possibly affected by certain solvents.  I was expecting it to be stamped into the metal.  The grip arrived with a visible parting seam and a bit of flash.  I took care of all with a couple of needle files.  It’s a 5 starrer in my book.

Review of: Le Mat Confederate Pistol

First and foremost I’m giving it a five star rating, but I got to say this is an ugly and heavy hunk of metal. I own six of these denix pistols now and they all vary in quality. The model 1873 long barrel revolver is the highest quality with a great sound to it and smooth action. Any of the engraved revolvers look awesome but feel cheaper. Now this LeMat has neither a good sound or a very smooth action. But the gun is solid and looks mean. It’s a must have for any collector.

Review of: Model 1850 Foot Officer's Sword

I picked this sword up a while back for use in reenactments.  It balances just like an original and the blade etching is high quality!  The scabbard bluing is very durable and survived a summer of heavy use and abuse in the field.  I would recommend this piece to anyone looking for a good quality sword that will survive use and abuse in the field.

Review of: 1840 Ames NCO Sword

I couldn't be more pleased with this high quality reproduction of a classic sword.  It's exactly what I needed for living history/reenacting.  I am currently active duty military and have since purchased several more and had them engraved for senior NCO retirement gifts.  
if you're looking for a great blade at a great value, look no further.

Review of: 1859 Sharps Civil War Carbine

First I hate that price drop after my purchase however I am guessing it's to offset the dagger. That being said

The replica yesterday it looks like my reenactment sharps. The only thing it would make it better would be if they made one that looks antique.

This will look good in my display case
