Are Windlass Steelcrafts swords suitable for combats, i.e. are battle-ready?
Swords from this Indian manufacturer typically have the blade edge 0.5 to 1.0 mm thick, which is insufficient in terms of the safety precautions for European contact sword combats. From this point of view, the Windlass swords are NOT battle-ready. Otherwise these swords are fully functional. The manufacturer also warns that the specifications of their swords are close to those of the originals. Such swords are not suitable for today's usual force contact combats. For this reason, no warranty or maintenance is granted for damages resulting from combats or combat exercises.
