For a hundred bucks USD, the Hanwei hand-and-a-half are okay. I have two of the earlier generation which are less whippy and better balanced. The new ones are safer as the older ones had a bit of a tip on them and I wouldn't ever thrust with them. Having said that, these are now redesigned for stage combat and they are best used only one against another, not against better, higher grade weapons. Problems that are sort of the issue with these is the overly fat pommel and inconsistent tempering. One of mine is holding up great, the other is flaking on minor edge contact so, yes, inconsistent. However, if one is on a serious budget, for the price and working mostly solo, they ARE steel and still beat wood wasters for getting the feel of your cuts and movement. Though if you're looking for a mid-range priced blunt, between that and the Albion, you could move up to the Tinker longsword. A little on the light side but well worth it as they hold up fairly well against other sword blunts.
