Hey all,

I promised you in the weeks leading up to my wedding that I would show off a photo of us cutting the wedding cake with the A&A custom piece I got for the wedding; I just got previews from my photographer now, and here's one! Pretty awesome, eh?

Woohoo! That's the right way to cut a big cake - with a big sword! Big Grin

Congratulations!

Best wishes,

Thomas

Did the same at my wedding too! You had a nicer cake though. :-) Used my Tinker sword for this one and of course my wife did most of the cutting with my just holding the sword up.

It would have been fun if you had cut that tall cake the same way people use their swords on water bottles or tatami mats. The guests would get some unusually shaped pieces of cake Big Grin

Many congrats Geordan, that sure is a beauty (do I mean the sword, the bride, or both ;-) just kidding)
As it happens I proposed to my girlfriend two nights ago (thank god she said yes) I wonder will I have the courage to ask her to use my custom Rob Miller to cut our cake. Again Geordan well done.

So Geordan, is that is a four handed sword?

I ran this option past my better half for our marriage in 2005 and all I got from her was the "no way" look.

Congratulations and did your re-grease the sword right after and not wait until later to avoid any staining or rusting. Wink Big Grin One does have priorities after all and rust prevention comes before " almost " anything else. Wink Razz

Oh, the four handed sword comment by Paul Watson is really funny. Big Grin Cool

That's the way to do it! Congratulations on wedding, gift and awesome looking cake! Sadly, back when I got married we did not had even a single steel sword at home... today it would be more like "which sword do we use?" Happy
