Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:
First responses were fast, I received a general expect date (which was early May). I did not however get any notice on when they started, progress pics, or notice of when it was shipped. They posted pictures on their Facebook of their first completion of the work, which was another person's order. I commented on it, giving some critique on missing details.
In June, I contacted them to ask when it would arrive, and whether or not mine would be the more detailed version. I was told that if I wanted a more detailed version, I would have to wait a bit longer, which I agreed to, so long as I still get it before the deadline of August 1st. I received the prop today, and despite waiting a tad longer, it is still the less detailed version.
I was honestly expecting a more detailed prop than what I received, especially since I had many many reference pictures. Many details are missing from the blade guard, pommel, and blade itself (balance of color between silver and gold). That being said, I did at least receive something. My recommendation is that if you need a prop they haven't done before, don't risk it. If you need a prop that they've done consistently before (like SAO swords), go ahead.
