Bent out of shape? The sword is
I ordered two of these. One for myself and one as a gift for my significant other's birthday.
The one I ordered for her was severely bent and cannot be used safely for any cutting practices or the like.

We are sorry one of these arrived damaged. These shipped over 5 months ago and we have no record of your reaching out to us about any problems with the order. We have no idea if this was shipping damage or a defect, but had you contacted us we would have immediately taken care of this issue.

Perfect short sword for my collection
I really like my short sword and you can’t beat the price for a high carbon blade. The rubber grip is comfortable to hold making it a good chopper.

Excellent long knife
This blade comes very sharp for the type of blade it is. You don’t want a hair shaving sharp edge on this side of blade. The sheath takes some breaking in, but the blade itself is very comfortable in large hands and it’s very very pointy. I’d say it’s a very worthy blade for home defense and possibly for self defense If you’re particularly brazen.

Great value
This is an awesome value.   Great home self defense tool.  Pointy, great rubber grip, fairly light.  Pay extra for sharpening!  Finish is not perfect.  Great 1st short sword.  Can't go wrong with the Kindlal!

Cobra Steel Kindjal
This is a very nice 21st Century version of a classic blade pattern.
Good weight, decent balance, really good steel and a GREAT handle!

On first handling this blade I was stuck by several thoughts the first of which was  " Holy $!*% I better be careful with this thing"

The tip has a very sharp point almost like a rapier and after a few passes with a diamond stone the blade took a razor edge.

My second thought was  " This was nicely done, l really like the handle and this is very good steel."

I will doubtless buy the Lakonia  and then start asking Windlass to make a Gladius and Pugo in Cobra Steel

Super pointy.  Sheath is good.  Edges sharpened, but not "sharp".  Won't cut paper.  Satin finish is not very good (blemishes/rubs).  Rubber handle is a little ashy (dried out).  I rubbed a small amount of plumber's silicone grease on the handle.  The handle is better, darkened up, and still grippy.
Despite my critique, you won't find a better short sword for the money.....maybe not even for twice the money.   I believe it is full tang.  This short sword should be pretty indestructible if not grossly abused.

Pretty much everything my 110 pound butt ever wanted!! Wanted it for four years. Just never had the extra cash or time. Until Now. The paracord is an interesting idea - but not required. Diggin' the grip. I read a while back that these handles will corrode on you, but I can't wait to make my own :)
Yeah - I gave it five stars, but...
The blade is scuffed up out of the box, and there's a nick in the blade like someone at fedex played with it...which totally blows - I basically got the personalized edition on a butt-smeared blade! Also should have been specific on the placement of my initials. They put it up and to the right of the logo, instead of directly and vertically adjacent - matching the logos height. (Thanks a lot)Looks like my new knife has bumper stickers!!
THIS IS NOT SHARP!! Yeah sure you might be able to SAW a cut into your hand or pant-leg after say 10 or 20 attempts. Definitely going to have to regrind the un-even grinds all the way down - since some lazy-mazy decided to stop 3" from the hilt. Will re-review after honing. I'm sure it'll be great...but what an ugly thing to wait four years for. Definitely not the sheen from the picture or Skallagrim videos.
Sigh - Still love it...Still wanna be it's daddy!

For the price it's a great little peice that being said, I have added a 550 cord wrap to the handle cause I have large hands and the grip feels great now. The factory edge couldn't cut paper so had to touch it up. The price range of this I am not upset about any of that. Once I put it thru some paces I'll update more

When I received  my kindjal, I was impressed by the weight and look of the sword. The sheath is snug so the sword would not come out easily unless  you want it to.. the only problem I have, is that I have big hands, and the handle is quite I bought some tennis handle grip to bulk up the thickness, and it feels just rights now.

From the picture this seems to be a thinner and more expensive version of the Qama (ID#400164).
