Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.

I received the sword today.The first impression was that it fits it's intended historical period fine.The scabbard is nice too.Where it excels it's in handling it.The sword seems as if it really wants to cut!It is very well balanced and feels like a much more expensive high end sword.The edge ,although isn't shaving sharp as it is mentioned,is sharp enough to cut even paper.The blade has a proper distal taper and no secondary bevel,while there's almost no gap between the blade and the crossguard.Overall,i'm very satisfied with that purchase and i highly recommend it...
This is my first sword from Tinker. Made with high quality, riveted pommel is no gap between crossguard and blade. Corresponds to the historical original 10-11 century.
