Fantastic construction and very durable,
Blade has good flex for the thruster be safe but not floppy to be hard to defend with,
Balance was excellent and in the proper place,
Handle is comfortable and indexed well,
Guard is solid and has no snags but there’s some weird spots the the metal from the build but nothing major just aesthetic,

All in all highly recommend for beginner or intermediate saber or just for fun!
Thanks SoCal!

1796 sabre: loved it!

It's basically perfect except the grip has a little too much friction and I got a blister on my hand after using it for about 10 minutes. Would recommend using with gloves to negate this. Feels great while training and has a nice ergonomic grip.

Fantastic for all your sabering needs!

Black fencer brings it home again with this 1796!
It handles wonderfully and is perfectly adequate for British military, Hungarian and even some polish saber. If you’ve got the money I’d say go for it!
