Well, I was slightly underwhelmed with the Narnia sword, but since I like most all MR stuff I ordered the Sparrow sword. #50 out of 3000.
Of course the typical attention MR places on presentation is here in a 30 pound box, but I search for the sword amongs the styrafoam. It's dwarfsized next to the huge framed display panel but I see a blemish on the handle. It's obvious that the painting of the faux grain was wet when placed into the box.
OK, it looks bad but I'm sure the finish is good. I put a little goof off on a rag and gently dap off the styrafoam. well all the pain on the front side of the handle comes off immediately. I'll post pics of that later.
WHY? The quality control CURSE continues
