I've wanted to get a curved blade of some sort for a while, but I just wasn't sure exactly what. So I browsed the myArmoury photo albums and picked out a few pictures that grabbed me. I talked to John Lundemo and sent him the pictures, asking him if he could whip up something nice for me. Here's what he came up with...

Stats:

Weight - 2 lbs 12 oz
Overall length - 37 1/4"
Blade length - 30 1/2"
Point of balance - approximately 4 1/2" from the guard

In case you were wondering, I'm pretty happy with it. I haven't had the chance to cut with it yet, but it feels like it will cut like a lightsabre. Happy

Very nice, any chance we could get a close-up picture of the guard?

Beautiful, did he do the scabbard too?

As I've been on my own personal quest for a saber of a certain type I've
looked at a few different makers that have created said blades -- but of
various styles and designs. While I'm not a real fan of the hilt and grip
style of Andy's blade, I've always believed JL's work stands out above
the " norm " if you will ... I've probably said it before and will say it again,
his work has style and class from pommel to scabbard tip.

Nice addition to your collection, Mr. B. I wouldn't mind seeing some
close-ups of the hilt and yelmen ... B-)
