Title:This $300 Reproduction Kilij Surprised Me...

Watch the Yatagan review first, if you haven't yet: Not my words, but apparently many people consider the Ottoman kilij to be the most powerful cutter. And a sword supposedly favored by Vlad ČšepeČ™ AKA Vlad the Impaler, the intimidating historical figure that inspired good old Dracula. Be that as it may, this is a budget sword by the standards of the functional sword reproduction market. Will it hold up to my tests? Let's find out! *** Specifications *** Overall length: 92 cm (36'') Blade length: 75 cm (29-1/2'') Blade thickness: 3.5-4mm (1/8''- 3/16'') Weight: 1.1 kg (2 lbs 7 oz) Material: 1060 high carbon steel Hilt construction: Peened handle scales *** Pros / Cons *** + Affordable + Cuts very well + Comfortable grip + Strong, durable blade - Simplified hilt with no details - Blunt yelmen (false edge) *** Where to find it *** [Update: I was told that their original site, was hacked, so they moved to I've reached out to Swordbuy on Etsy and asked them to confirm this is real, which they did.
