Ben,

That's a beauty. Can you measure it and include its specs? Weight, COG, etc.?

If you continue to show me the photos sooner or later I'll buy the original Happy Laughing Out Loud
I 've seen this sword last week, haughty, proud and beautiful. A wolf in short.

Ciao
Maurizio

That first picture might just be the finest image of this sword I've seen yet. The Brescia has very intriguing blade geometry and you've managed to get the light to play across the steel just right to perfectly illuminate those features. Very well framed and shot! I'm on the road at the moment, but I'll be happy to add my own Brescia to this thread in about two weeks.
Pax,
Sam Barris

Here's one of mine. This is the older one, probably one of the first. Sorry about the smudge near the cross. Happy

Are we going to start a Brescia Spadona club?

Mine is less than pristine condition after all the heavy usage, so I think it's better not to show it. Hhehee.

Yes, I too want to see it. And using a sword hard is no excuse for it looking like crap. Every sword in my collection photo (except one of the Brescias which is new) has been used and used hard. One of those swords has had all manner of terrible things happen to it and still looks like new. Learn to maintain and restore your Albions, or pay me to do it for you. Happy
