I ordered this as soon as I saw it on the General Discussion Board and just received it today. It's a very nice job by Tinker and is extremely light and well balanced. It, unfortunately for me, just doesn't speak to me like I thought it would...perhaps it's just a touch too far of a deapture from the rest of my collection or my usual tastes, but I still admire the work! The pics and stats listed here are form Tinker's post The reinforced leather scabbard is dyed brown.

Bastardsword inspired by Irish swords of the 15th C. Blade is 5160 spring steel hardened to HRc52-53, excepting the tang and shoulder of the blade which are selectively drawn to HRc 45-48. Furniture is Mild Steel, handle is sandwhiched hardwood wrapped in linen cord and covered with a dark purple leather. The tang is heat-blued where it passes through the open center of the ring-pommel. The sword is provided with a leather scabbard that is reinforced at the throat and chape with additional leather.

Tinker had it listed on his site for $1425USD and shipping. I'll let it go for $975 and shipping.
