About Refurbished Items : A weapon is declared refurbished when, following a standard inspection by Calimacil, it does not reach the expected esthetical level. A refurbished weapon will have the same security level as a standard Calimacil weapon but may have some lower quality result on painting, forms or other. This type of weapon is not covered by any warranty.
We all are part of this great and beautiful army. Fighting off the invasions of dire creatures, finding traitors to the crown and keeping the peace in the kingdom, we are all but one arm, united for a cause. This is why all our swords were forged the same. With our rigorous training and years of experience, our gear makes us the perfect symbol of peace and righteousness, even beyond our lands. Maybe my name won’t be remembered, but each one of us is a page in the history of our kingdom.
I purchased this sword worried about the quality with it being "refurbished." Those concerns were completely dispelled when it arrived. Apart from a small almost unnoticeable bubble in the blade near the cross-guard it looked and felt perfect. Beyond looking great, this sword is remarkably durable. I have used it for over a year now in sun, rain, and snow without any special maintenance and it is still good as new.
I recently purchased two of the refurbished novice II swords. The minor blemishes that were on each of them were purely cosmetic and very acceptable in my opinion.
If you are on a tight budget, but still looking for a quality product, I highly recommend you give the refurbished version a try.
I purchased this for a LARP I plan to participate in. They have high standards for aesthetics.
I am impressed with this item. Even the refurbished sword has a very high quality in both looks and durability. I'll be keeping an eye out for future deals. Thank you!
I was not disappointed at all. The sword looked and felt amazing. A purchase i do not regret.
This was a great purchase. The simple design kept the cost down for my first LARPing purchase. In retrospect, I would have liked specific photos of the effect of refurbishment (which are only noticeable up close) just so I wasn't surprised. For a new player, it seems ideal and the minor difference refurbishment made gives my first sword a bit of character. I have no regrets buying this item because the 20% discount ($20) completely makes up for the minor aesthetic difference because, as a new player, I know I have many additional items to purchase in the near future. The mark is about 2/3 as long as the handle, appears on both sides almost symmetrically, and denotes a ridge about 1/32 of an inch high (about the hight of the keys on my MacBook). The attached photos are taken from <1 foot away for the close-ups and 3 feet away for the distanced one.
