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.
