Will be honest, I haven't fought with a
heavy basket hilt in years, been fighting with the Baldar plastic hilts
or aluminum hilts from Windrose. So when I bought the stainless one, I
figured I would try it out, but most likely would end up using the
Finn O'Shannon KSCA
I saw them in person last night
and these cup hilts look great, the quality and workmanship on them are
way beyond any thing I've seen. They are built like a tank and are great
I bought one made of stainless at Defending the Gate this
past Saturday. It has a really solid feel, heavy enough to balance the
blade, yet not hilt heavy. I love the protection for the sides of my
hand, which are really exposed during wrap shots with other hilts.
Construction is rock solid, and the price is great. I will be
recommending these to the fighters in the barony.

I've fought with it several times, nothing
but good things to say about the performance. It seems heavier in
the hand, but it moves very well. No wrist interference, and it's
a good size so that my hand can't slide around inside too much.
I did manage to get two tiny dents in it already though, it makes it look like I basket punched someone in the head and hit a rivet. Twice. No biggie though.
I let a couple of the locals try it out, I expect they'll be ordering some in the near future.
I got my Ebonwoulfe cup hilt just a few days
ago. I've experimented with weightless baldar cups to extra-heavy wire
baskets, and I have to say, these ones are just heavy enough to
counterbalance the sword properly but not so heavy that they make it
I had borrowed Logan's sword once while doing pickups with Duke Valharic, and if I recall, I was doing really really well...at the time, I just thought I was having an 'on-day', but now that I made a sword from this cup hilt, I realize what a difference it makes to the weapon's handling properties.
Overall an outstanding product that I recommend without reservation!

|Got a pair, they
arrived within three days of ordering (WOW) and these things are great,
I have never fought with a better hilt.
