THE WINNER OF THE BASKET-HILT SWORD IS:

Don Halter of Bryan, Texas!

Bryan has won a fantastic reproduction English/Scottish "Lowland" Basket-hilt sword donated by its makers, E.B. Erickson and Angus "Gus" Trim. It has a value of around $700 US! Please send Bryan your congratulations and let him know how jealous you are so he can enjoy his bragging rights!

And the runner-ups were:

Matt Corbin
Thomas Schneider
Anna Budd
Larry Tom
Sean Flynt

These people were picked right before the winning name and came SO CLOSE to winning the sword, themselves!

Better to be close than not at all, right?

well done Don, I'm wandering, does runner up mean you get a piece of the blade, instead of the whole blade? hmm . . .

remeber us don, when you are slashing and thrusting, pivoting and cartwheeling with that sword.

thanks for the contest - can't wait for the next one. Thanks to all the people who made this possible.

Congratulations Don!
I wanted to get in on the drawing, but screwed up and didn't make it in time. It's an awesome looking sword, and with an A-Trim blade you won't be disappointed. I can't say enough good about "Mr. Trim", I know he hates to be called that. If anyone's interested why I'm so pleased with A-Trim swords, ask me. I hope I get to see Don's new baskethilt sometime. Don, If you're ever into the San Antonio area, contact me, I'll spring for dinner, and we can talk swords.[/img]
