I just got my hands on this magnificent sword and I have to say, I think it's one of the most beautiful swords I've ever owned. Not just visually, but in the hand as well.

In fact it was so nice I felt I had to share some pictures, so here they are:

Good choice Mike - that one's close to the top, if not at it, for when I eventually buy a rapier.

Cheers,

Christian

Thanks Christian. You won't be disappointed. Some swords look great in pictures but are "meh" when you get your hands on them. This is not such a sword.

I agree. I own one (though mine has a nail head blade that is 43"), and its outright beautiful. Congrats!

Hard to go wrong with one of their rapiers, the German is very nice.

I've got the Bavarian and the Writhen and were I to pick another it would be the German followed by the Milanese and the Gustav Vasa in that order. They are all VERY nice. Happy
