Review of: Solid Copper Coffee Mug
I like it a great deal. I found out that it is used for cold beverages not hot beverages. I thought I could use it for hot beverages, but apparently not. However, I love the cup and I will continue to use it because I believe that it is healthy to do so.

Review of: Union Enlisted Cavalry Shell Jacket
Beautiful jacket. Color and quality outstanding for price. I am 6’4” and weigh 240 lbs. Usually items are snug and short for me. This jacket fit me perfectly.

Review of: D-Guard Bowie Knife
Good quality large knife. Holds an edge well. I have opened pellet bags with it by the thrust and slice method; very satisfactory. More than a stage prop. Wild hog had 2 arrows in it. Had nothing else; finished it with the D guard Bowie.

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: Union Officer's Round-About Jacket
I bought this wool jacket to make a presentation coat like many of the Plains Native American tribal leaders would wear when they posed for photographs. All of the buttons have the eagle, just as the Civil War originals did. I plan on having Captain's shoulder boards attached to this in the future. I am considering adding some sleeve buttons, in the future. I think that any re-enactment officer of the Union Army would look great in this jacket. I wore it around the house from the time that I opened the package just to get a feel for it. It kept me warm all day, since it has been raining, and is a little more chilly than usual. Well made and an exceptional value for the price point.

Review of: Civil War Map Case - CSA
This reproduction is so good that it could pass as an original. The oxidation is heavy, but some fine sandpaper can reduce it and make it look like it has pocket wear. I am planning on using this with a collection of reproductions that commemorate the Cherokee Rifles, a Civil War battalion from the Indian Territory, which is the State of Oklahoma, today. The Cherokee Rifles were led by Stand Waite, and were the last Confederates to lay down their arms. Of course, this could be used with any Confederate military display or even in re-enactments. Might be a good place to keep your Confederate money, also.

Review of: Windlass Steelcrafts 1840 Heavy Cavalry Saber
As a fencer, reenactor, drill team member (saber), and free-form sword fighter, I dreamed of the perfect weapon. When I received "Old Wrist Breaker", I put it on my sword belt, took it into the driveway, took it through the military manual of arms, then proceeded into a combat exercise, ending with shouldering arms. It felt NATURAL! Light and well-balanced, I saw no reason for it to have earned its nickname. My only regret is that I had not paid extra to have it factory sharpened.
