Re: Best 'functiona' blade for the money? Warrior series? Who is making it? 1075 is good steel. Is there a HRC rating? And just a heads up... CF (Christian Fletcher) usually works with AllSaints (Angus Trim) blades, he just makes adaptations to the hilt, pommel and grips. If you see a CF you like but can't afford it, you most likely get the same exact sword in a more plain variant at AllSaints.
