- Nov 4, 2008I agree that these look like excellent swords but my only thought is,
aren't they a bit too good for an officer to take on sea service..?
Great for ceremonial use, attending court or cutting the wedding cake
but perhaps a plain, basic hangar would be better for taking to sea
and fighting with.. Just my two cents worth..
