Ooooooh...

...and I usually don't care for one-handers...

I want this one, and a boat. And a dozen like-minded souls.

Well done, Mr. Fletcher!

Very nice indeed Christian. Of course this puts me in a quandry. I am looking hard at getting a Viking sword and between this beauty and the Tinker/CAS Iberia model it is going to be hard to decide. I like the looks of the other Valian line swords but this one is tops. Any idea on when these will be coming to market?

Wow! Looks great. I really like the grip. Any possibility of putiing some wire in between the lobes of the pommel or would that be too cost prohibitive for this line?

Very nice! Any word on what the price will be? A ballpark figure, perhaps?

I'm not certain but I beleive that the production swords will have a peened pommel. The proto's are done with a hexnut so that the can be disassembled for stats, production R&D and so forth...

That would be great, but production Castile is made with a hexnut so I thought this one would also...

That to would be nice, but you can find an original viking sword with narrow fuller, but with a hexnut you can't. Wink
