Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:
I'm cosplay Maka Albarn at Aki Con this fall, and I wanted to go all the way and have the scythe as well. I was planning on making the scythe, but the cost for materials was much too high. I was then browsing ebay and found this product, which is much cheaper than it would have cost to make. It look great- much better than the other available props on ebay/amazon. So I messaged him on facebook inquiring about the materials of the scythe. He responded very quickly- within a day. He was very friendly and answered all the questions I had. Feeling at ease, I ordered the product.
The next day the status of my scythe was shipped (I figured he had it in stock already) and I eagerly awaited its arrival. The earliest expect delivery date was July 30th- today. I received it quite fast!
I love this scythe. It's exactly what I saw in the picture (and the video of it on youtube), and it's even sturdier than I expected! When he said he used fiber board, I was expecting a very delicate weapon, but it is as durable as plywood! It's well made and exactly what I wanted. The only minor complaint I have is that the paint job on the staff is a bit uneven, but it's not noticeable unless you really look. Very happy with what I got, and I would certainy buy a prop from him in the future!
