I based on XV century sword - type XVIII (E.Oakeshott. Records of Medieval Swords, s.231) All is 100% hand made. It was dull version, to fight. That's why i cannot make sharp point ;/

What do you think about this piece?

Best Regards

Beautiful work, Jan. The hilt furniture is very well shaped!

There is a button at the bottom of all of his posts that says "Visit Web." Clicking there will take you to what he has listed as his website. Going to his profile will show the direct link.

Does look like a nice bit of work from the photo.

Looks like some impressive work, Jan!

We are very used to seeing highly-embellished "fishtail" pommels, so it is refreshing to see a reproduction of a simpler, cleaner example.

I visited your website and am very impressed with your work, especially that XVa longsword, and your scabbards.

This sword looks really great. Mick showed me the messer you made for him. It is great as well but this sword looks even more convincing.

I hope to see more of your work some day.

Very nice clean lines in guard and pommel and overall great looking sword. Cool
