Concerning the specs given for the Albion Yeoman - some of them are different from those listed at Albion. The only one that seems out of tolerance is the blade length, which here is shown as 35.25, and at Albion, 27.25 inches. Probably it is a miscopy of the overall length.

Good work, Felix, and especially good work to Nathan and the boys. You've managed to coax money that I don't have out of me with your well chosen prizes. Twenty dollar in a raffle is probably a more reliable investment than any stock out there right now anyway Happy

Keep up the good work,

Kenton

Good job on the Yeoman review. The photographer deserves some praise. Lighting and shadows, backdrop, angles, etc., are very flattering to the subject, as I have come to expect in the myArmoury teams' projects.

The review statistics do seem like the particular one reviewed must have been slightly larger (slightly longer, a little heavier, CoP a touch farther out, etc.) than the manufacturer's published statistics. However, the discrepancies are so consistent that I can believe this is how the sword that was reviewed actually is. It seems to show that to a degree these are hand finished products with a little bit of individual character......

Absence of evidence is not necessarily evidence of absence!

Of course the stats were given as taken from the particular piece, the review should not only give a repetition of manufacturers´ stats, but should show what the real thing is like. And indeed, with all the hand work in the course of the finishing process, some discrepancies are to be expected.
