Looks like they're loosely based on the Thorpe Falchion to me.
"Tears are for the craven, prayers are for the clown.
Halters for the silly neck that cannot keep a crown.
As my loss is grievous, so my hope is small.
For Iron, Cold Iron, must be master of men all..."

MY goodness ,that green falchion is beautiful,beautiful Big Grin I want . I have always been partial to green leatherwork..definately gives it an Narnina/Elven look . Epic work,guys ! What's the price tag on that particular piece?
Wounds of flesh a surgeons skill may heal...

But wounded honor is only cured with steel.

We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.
Each of us should please his neighbor for his good ,to build him up.
Romans 15:1-2

Sonny you seem to be making some unique, for the price point, production swords that have many appealing almost custom features that would normally only be available at 3X the price or more. Big Grin Cool

That is the goal of our Custom Sword Shoppe.
We customize our own production items and we work on other makers items as well.

We are not trying to compete with the high end producers. We are trying to balance price, quality and custom options for those who cannot or will not afford some of the work from those high end makers.
We do not claim to meet those levels in quality, but in "bang for the buck" I think we are a bargain. We are really just trying to fill a niche within a niche.

I personally believe that in a field such as swords, that every level of interest benefits when companies like our push the boundries as to what is available from a production/semi custom sword company.

The real winner is the customer.

Cut it out already Sonny. I mean who do you think you are making stuff like that at that price point. SOME OF US don't have any disposable income at the moment and would like to STAY married. Seriously though man, wonderful work by your team yet again. I'm starting to expect this level of work from you all. Keep it up man.

as a matter of fact, yes, they're falchions. that is quite a classic falcion design by the way of the guard and pommel, whats SLIGHTLY less common, hough not that much less common, is the fact it has that clip point but its still an extremely welll documented blade type
