Hey all, it's been awhile since I have been on this forum, but I thought I'd share a few pieces that I have put out lately. I posted these on the swordforum awhile back, but I'm sure there are people here who are not on that forum.

Very nice pieces. I'd not mind adding either of them to my collection! I'd love to carry that XVII to SSG practice, its quite the looker. Big Grin

Very pretty. I especially like the XII. What's the hilt construction on it: peened or dismountable?

Thanks guys, both are dismountable, though I use a large diameter 3/8" bolt through the pommel, and the guard does not slide over it.

I really like that one hander! Very nice. I like the polished look too. Make more so you can post more pictures so we drive ourselves crazy looking at them!
