Here a few pictures of my little collection of sharps, I have 2 more blunt Deepekas I didn't include in this picture. Photos are not very good but they are the best I can achieve with my not so good camera and inside my apartment.

Nice cross section through the ages... You should only systematically fill in the gaps Happy

Sharp or blunt?

Edit:

I should read more carefully- you've said they are sharp:)

Yes, I need a celtic sword, migration period sword, 15th century longsword, maybe a falchion or something... Wink And than a lot of others... The only period I have no real interest in is 19th century... Although I would like to have a napoleonic heavy cavalry saber just because I like how it looks. Happy

Very nice!

May I inquire as to which models they are? I recognize the Tinker/Hanwei Viking, and what may be a T/H Great Sword of War, but the baskethilt and the other single handed sword elude me... ;-)

Thanks, and congrats on such a fine collection!

Thanks Brogdon! The Viking is Hanwei Tinker Viking, the big one is customized Del Tin 2142, brazil nut is Del Tin St. Maurice 2130 with changed crossguard and the baskethilt is custom basket by Croatian maker Alojz Krišto on a Windlass Sword of Granson blade.

Luka, I like the way you are taking good blades from well known swords and getting your local smith to customize the hilt furniture to suit your own taste. It's an economical way to create a very unique collection. We should do more of this. -JD
