There have been a lot of rumors flying around about a new sword we have been working on.

You can finally get a look at it here:

Classic type XLV, about a yard long, I'd guess. Will there be a companion cheese knife made available?

Let me guess, it's named " The Lombardi " or perhaps " The Nitschke "...

That's awesome. I wonder if Christian Fletcher or someone will do a scabbard for that with a genuine pigskin covering, laced up on one side like a football.

Honestly the stuff they put on footballs might not be such a bad choice for a grip.

If nothing else...it certainly is "cheesy" looking! Do think if named the Lombardi, you folks would have a visitor from beyond.

Very funny ...

Cheers,

I had this on pre-order. I'm glad to see it finally come to fruition.

A real challenge making a scabbard with matching notches and being able to insert or pull out the sword from the scabbard: Maybe a side hinge opening scabbard like a violin case. Wink Razz Laughing Out Loud

Would I be guessing correctly that this might be, just might be, an April's Fools Joke ! Eek! I hope not because I just put in an order for two. Wink Razz Laughing Out Loud Cool

Sorry to say, but that's a cheezy design, though the guard with all the holes reminds me of how sad it was to see Roethlisberger unable to get the ball to his receivers...
I suppose that it will come with special packing and a scabbard made of fish leather freshly caught in the unpolluted section of the Great Lakes...

Bon coeur et bon bras

I'd like to ask a question that I'm sure is on all of our minds - is it battle-ready?

And the best thing is, all it needs is ONE MORE NOTCH before it can be converted into a Pittsburgh Steelers sword!

What?? Those notches aren't bottle openers!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, in that case, it won't be much good at tailgate parties then, will it?


Bravo Albion! I can really imagine one of those memorabilia companies making something like that.

Yes they are bottle openers and you can open 5 at a time. Wink Razz Laughing Out Loud

Oh, and they are even better than Battle ready they are BOTTLE READY. Razz
