Don't know anything about this thing but it sure looks nifty. Cool

good morro gentalmen

I asked Rob if he could Hollow ground the Suontasta blade and bring it to a point .
theres a Hollow ground finger ring sword that he did awhile ago . the blade was amazing and i thought put that blade with the suontasta hilt and pummel .
The Sterling Silver was a after thought cocobolo for the grip so it is a deep blood red against the silver i knew that Rob was a Master Craftmens in the art of steel but this swords goes beyond my Wildest Expectations

thx for the kind words

Congratulations. This one looks truly stunning. How does it feel in hand, if I may ask?

(I have got one of Rob Millers viking swords myself, it is a cutting weapon if there ever was one, and still aesthetically very pleasing)

Congratulations on your lovely sword Tim,

The combination of historical design aspects with the unconventional blade shape (at least coupled with this hilt) is really striking.

Stunning looking blade.

Out of curiosity, does anyone know if the original was a pattern welded or a monosteel?

The original sword is monosteel.

Like the sword. The hilt and blade look great together!
