Can you use a European Display Sword?
These decorative medieval and European inspired display swords are not made for use. Though these swords look real and have real blades, they are not produced the same as our “Functional European Swords”. Decorative swords are not constructed properly for any type of use. This includes cutting, sword demonstration or any vigorous stop and start movements. Each piece in this class of sword has been reviewed and has not met the criteria of a functional sword. This doesn't mean that they are not good swords. They look great on the wall and are easy to maintain. Decorative European swords are excellent collectors items, but if you need a sword for practice or use, you should have a look in our "functional swords" sections of our website.
