Hi Sonny,

Very very elegant weapon. I especilly like the subtle blade profile (slightly flared shoudlers?).

What's the price tag on these one? Maybe it's just me but I'm started to get confused by the many new sword lines using Atrim blades/or based on gus trim prototypes : signature line, regal line, now VA elite, not to mention prestige and Chimera lines through C Fletcher (some use VA hilts components, adding to the confusion Happy It's not a critic by the way. though I don't own a VA to this day (which may change soon at this rate!), I think VA has especially contributed in upgrading the standards of the sub 500$ sword market and I'm not about to complain about the great amount of new swords you are coming up with Happy

About the signature line, Last time it was discussed here reviews were to be made available on myArmoury. It that still going to happen?

Cheers,

Julien

That grip finish turned out absolutely perfect.

Just out of interest, what Oakeshott type would this be (this profile is different from what I'm usually drawn to) ... or is it one of Gus' 'Type XVATs'? Big Grin

I would have been happier if the price was $600.00 instead of $599.99.

Even so, a good looking sword

It appears to be a XIIa blade.

Christian has designed the Hilt on a Atrim type XIX single hand blade.
We hope to have this release late this year
