NCO Sword Casting Comparison

All images are completely unretouched.

  1. If you look closely, you can see the difference between the two casting methods used by WKC and Country One. WKC uses a combination of a 3D-computer system and lost-wax casting to create their molds, while Country One uses the less-expensive sand-cast method. Sand-casting is not effective at creating fine details in a sword, which is why Country One’s sword lacks the intricate details when compared to WKC.
  2. Proper fit of the components is a significant difference between these two swords. One of the most obvious areas of poor fit is visible where the guard meets the pommel. The WKC sword has a very small gap between these two pieces while Country One’s gap is large enough to be visually obvious, and is at least twice as wide as the WKC gap.
