Qama - get one!
This is without a doubt the best sword for the money. Full profile tang, sturdily built, easily re-sharpened, well fitted scabbard. Mine came sharp, blade and edge profile symmetrical. Outstanding value.

Nice Blade.
Good value for the cost but I don't like the way the studs protrude into the grip area of the hilt Nice shape to the blade.

Short Sword
The blade came razor sharp.  Excellent product.  The handle is a little short for my fat hands, but is that the swords fault?....

Fit for purpose.
This Qama is a bit more nimble and easier to change direction with than my Gladius. Old ladies need to feel like they have a chance, and control of the blade helps with that.

Nice defence weapon
Basic Roman style blade with a much stronger full tang handle. The Handle length is way to short for my hand .The sharpening service is well worth it. It came razor sharp. Beside the handle length.the big problem is with the scabbard it is over 2 inches longer than the blade so the blade rattles around in it and easily falls out, also there is no belt attachment of any sort. That being said the sword itself would make a nice house defense weapon. Well worth the low price.

This has become one of my favorite swords, short sword long knife whatever.  High quality hand forged blade perfectly sharpened to razor edge with the optional service.  The handle is smaller but perfect for my hand, about medium to large.

I give it a 5 within it's price range. I don't trust stainless on swords so the carbon steel model was my choice. Sharpening good enough to go over it with a finer stone and do it right as they established an even bevel. I think I will completely dull the first 1.5 to 2 inches near the handle for safety. Sheath is good. I would nod miss the belt loop because something this long  and heavy does not ride well for belt carry. I wonder how the originals were carried, probably with a sash or shoulder sash?
The handle fits me well it I hold it with the first joint of the pointer finger on the front bolt head. Mystery wood handle is a little slick, but I can roughen it up a little as needed. I like the balance of the Lakonia rubber ducky better, but this one has 3 inches or more reach. I came well oiled in what looks like a rust resistant cardboard cover. They might do themselves some good by reminding people that carbon steel needs to be wiped off after use and lightly oiled.
The bolt heads are historically accurate, but for a user they could be left off. Something in this price range is not a collectible so use should be more important than historical accuracy.

The blade seems nice and has great stabbing/thrusting power. The sharpened edge they put on it was good. The sheath is not so great. The sheath has no belt attachment points and it seems somewhat flimsy. The sword falls out of the sheath very easily also.

If you are into short swords this blade makes a fine addition to your collection. The only problem I find with it is the handle is a little short for my hand and a small crack in the wood by the upper stud. I had it sharpened before shipping and as always they did a great job on it.
