Absolutely breathtaking. I love single edged blades of any kind, and Swiss sabers are some of my favorites. His work is magnificent!

You are one lucky guy!

Nathan.

From what I can see, I like it a lot. The hilt has places to accommodate all parts of your hand, especially thumb and forefinger. I hope it handles and cuts as well as it looks.

Fantastic. You better hide it once it gets into this country because I can see Nathan Robinson making a trip to liberate this sword from you.

Yeah that seems like a high probability risk. Wink Laughing Out Loud

Impressive and sculpturally " babealishious ": Not a real word but couldn't find a good enough one in English or in French. Wink Cool

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Your Swiss Saber is very pretty. How long has been your lead time (so far, since you don't quite have it yet)?

I've been doing rapier for a long, long, time, but lately, I've been digging messers. That is like the perfect blend of the two. I wish I had one!

Hello
I got it! Yeah Me !:-) Its allmost a hand and a half saber. The second hand, can grip it pretty comfortably,with the "nose" of the pommel, resting between the 3rd and little fingers.
Overall length: 43 "
Blade: 36"
POB: 4"
Blade width at guard: 1 5/8"
Wieght: about 2 lbs 8oz. The blade/fuller design,realy made it light.
It feels good gripping it hammer like,or with a finger over the arm. I like It alot! :-) A pleasant surprise on, Tax day,for a change:-)
