Check these out:

http://www.aresacademy.it/knight%20line.html

From what one can tell from photos, these look pretty impressive for the price - stats, finish, historical accuracy. The only fault I can spot is that the handles on the Brazil nut swords are a bit long to be historically accurate - likely because of popular demand.

Has anyone had their hands on one of these?

In my first post I asked the same thing.
Michel Enging provided me with information about the maker.
He writes on this site. I bought a Byzantine sword, is superior to my
Del Tin as strength and hardness.
The thing that struck me is the manipulation.
Thanks to him I met a group that operates in the Byzantine lands
Taranto: http://www.cavalieriterretarentine.it/index.html
coordinator: Prof. Vito Maglie.
They, long buying swords Byzantine and Norman from him.
Waiting times are lengthening, 4 months maybe 5. I was lucky byzantine
sword was ready.

Cafagna, by 'manipulation' do you mean that your sword is easy to handle?

Based on the statistics provided on this web site, it looks like these swords are much lighter than the typical Det Tin; more like what one would expect from some of the better production swords.

It's too bad he has a wait time of 5 months already. I imagine this will grow along with the price as people become more aware of this brand.

They are attractive, but I haven't head from anyone who has one.

Happy

Yes, manipulation means handling. In defense of the blade marks little, in attack a little 'more, but is better.
The Del Tin are a bit 'heavier, but I'm glad all my purchases. Del Tin blades is also good.
I like working with Reichswert sword, but it is beyond my bagdet
