That's beautiful, especially the carving on the handle.

Your website says Nebojsa means "Fearless One" - When I googled it, the net says the name has a Serbian/Croatian origin.

You are correct. This one is on it's way to Serbia.

Nice job, it's gorgeous. And I love the cutlass on your site.

Well done. Your work has a certain elegance to it. Thanks for sharing. I have been inspired to do a little carving myself after looking at so much of your work.

Very beautiful work, I agree with all the nice things said by the previous posters. Cool

Love the carving on the handle.

Oh lets not forget about the scabbard which is outstanding and really makes the whole package superb.

Love it! You've definitely developed a distinctive, yet highly historically flavored style all your own.

Can you say a little about the scabbard fittings? They have an interesting finish that is sort of an "almost-but-not-quite" copper color. Is that patinated copper? Maybe it's just the lighting in the photo, but it's really a nice touch.

Thanks for all the kind words.

The fittings are plain copper no special treatment. They are punched like the originals.
