If you are going that direction, get the Del Tin. I would recommend Darkwood 
Armory. They rarely sell just a blade and sometimes lead time is a bit long. 
Also a bit expensive.

Advantages - 40+ inches compared to the typical 35 inch Schlager. The 
"practice" Del Tin is what you want unless your going for almost full 

Schlager is not bad. I have a 35 inch. It is quicker than a Del Tin but the 
length disadvantage can be a real killer - pun intended. It typically cost 

Most everything else is personal preference.

Good Luck,

Dirk the Just
