Hello Everyone.

I Just completed this type XVa and I would like to share it with you. She has a somewhat close resemblance to her type XVIIIb sister I completed earlier and posted recently on April 22.

Overall length :------------------- 53 3/4 inches
Blade length :--------------------- 40 1/4"
Handle length :------------------- 10 5/8"
Blade width at cross :----------- 2"
Blade thickness at cross :----- 0.320
Blade thickness at COP :-------0.240
Center of gravity :---------------- 3" from crossguard
Center of percussion :---------- 24" from crossguard
Blade steel :----------------------- 5160
Weight :----------------------------- 4 lb 8.5 oz

The handle is made of Verawood with nickle silver bands and the wheel pommel is inserted with a reticulated brass medalion.

Enjoy and your comments are appreciated.

Thanks for looking,
Gabriel

Wow, that's quite a stylish and attractive piece. The wood and nickle silver really work well together.

Beautiful, love the art in the pommel Happy
Though I'm not so sure about the comfort of a wooden grip, how does it feel?

My copliments! Overall an excellent piece, but I must underline that the pommel is simply awesome and the handle is very interesting. How does the wood feel in hand?

Gabriel,

I just love the file work on the guard. it is so simple yet perfectly placed to set off the blade and grip. you have an excellent eye for how to fit things together beautifully.

that brass insert in the pommel is just . . . WOW! I don't know what to say about that but I love it.

you did a good job on this piece, congrats.

Gabriel,

I love going to your website, the work you do is simply awe inspiring and your breadth of interest and talent is unbelievable. I love the swords, I love the ships, the detail in both is simply fantastic.

Thank you everyone, your positive comments are very much appreciated.

I do not name the swords I make, although maybe I should, considering the huge collection that I have. I just name or rather call them by their obvious or relevant features like their handle wood kind - vera, snake, blood, ebony, burl etc, although some of them are redundant, or steel type - A2, etc etc.... maybe some day I will name them properly with names they really deserve.

Earlier, I used to cover the wooden handles with leather, but lately I prefer to make them of noble woods. I believe they are more deserving of the best kind available. Just my personal opinion.

Thanks again,

Gabriel

The level of craftsmanship apparent in your work is stunning. Very elegant while avoiding being ostentatious.

After perusing the various pieces on your site, it is obvious that this is a labor of love for you.

My congratulations, and sincerest admiration on your work.

The level of craftsmanship is almost surreal as your work always seems to be. Cool
