CATEGORY C Training or recreation swords without combat. Tempered carbon steel swords of good quality but may not be well balanced. Because of their quality they are functional weapons but without guarantees in use for real battle due to their lower hardness and low resistance. Not knowing the use they have been given, they cannot be guaranteed. Blade hardness less than 48 HRC. They are full tang, screwed or welded to the handle. Balanced not optimal.
