customer feedback about the Ranger dagger
“I just received my dagger and the quality is outstanding. Thanks again, I look forward to purchasing more medieval blades from Darksword Armory.” ~ A. Randazo., New.Jersey, USA.
”I just received the second of my two recent orders, the excellent Ranger’s Dagger. Unlike almost every other Fantasy (book, movie, comic book) based weapon I’ve ever seen, you have produced an historically grounded, functional, honest to god blade weapon! It’s elegant, lethal, and feels the way a fighting knife is supposed to feel. I went on a couple of very much not scenic tours during the recent nastiness in Afghanistan and Iraq. I spent more than a little time becoming proficient and employing modern blade weapons, and the balance, heft, and reach I had with my Ranger’s blade of choice was very similar to those of your Ranger’s Dagger. Only real advantage of my modern sticker was the more ergo grip plus built in knuckle duster, which might look out of place being wielded by a LoTR Ranger lol.I applaud your tremendous skill, your care and professionalism, and your efforts to provide the real thing to those of us who cannot realistically pay a minimum of several thousand dollars for a single weapon.” – J. Lavette, Redwood, CA. , USA

Featured positive reviews:
Out of all the LOTR movie blades, the sword of Strider was always my favorite. It has an elegance in its simplicity. So when I started shopping for a dagger to add to my collection, I was ecstatic to find a functional one in the same style as my favorite sword!
While the dagger I got definitely fits the picture, there are some issues with it's overall construction. When I first drew it, I noticed something off about the blade alignment. It almost seemed warped, but the blade and edge were straight. After some measuring, I realized the blade was not aligned properly with the handle, resulting in a 1/8inch miss alignment at the tip. While I'm sure this won't stop it from being a functional piece, it is very noticeable every time I hold it.
The guard is also slightly off. On its own I probably would have overlooked it, however with the offset of the blade it stands out prominently.
The blade is advertised as "sharp", but when I first went to wipe it off the burs on the edge were so bad they ripped up my microfiber cloth no matter how careful I was. I will have to remove them before I sharpen the blade properly.
All around this blade seems functional. The fit up is very tight, and I expect it will stay that way with it's peened pommel. The blade is straight, and seems durable. If I was getting a bushcrafting knife, this would be more than adequate. But I got this dagger to be a functional and decorative piece, and the overall fit and finish have been a disappointment.
Our responseIt may be a case of this blade simply not suiting your own tolerances for imperfections in a sword. We do note in the official manufacturers Dossier on Darksword Armory here that: "..the swords themselves may have some grind marks, hammer marks, blade misalignment or other cosmetic defects that do not truly effect performance.." Curiously, many historical European swords also had the same 'defects' (usually because, as each sword is hand mad and not machine milled, the fittings may sit better functionally than they do cosmetically). Indeed, some are so seemingly badly misaligned while they were fine for the warrior whose life depended on it, modern collectors would probably reject them! Really it is just a matter of degree, but at the end of the day if you are not happy with your purchase you can contact our customer service here and we will take care of it for you.
