Hi Sonny,

Very nice work as usual, quality for the budget minded for sure. I inspected one of your regular offerings while at KOA a few month back (the malatesta) and was very positively impressed by it, especially as far as the leather work was concerned.

I'd go easy on the stamping and shallow etching, but that's all down to personnal taste I suppose (I don't quiet get the below though (some odd client requirement?).

i don't follow roman styled swords but that one really catches my eye on the blade geometry alone.

Sonny,

More good work. Couple suggestions fwiw... I like the "lower contrast" of the last 2, vs. "too strong" a leather color change. And I'd add a 2nd vote for you to maybe have in mind a fancier buckle or two to offer customers an upgrade option.

But I do like the paw prints (though usually Julien has (proven) better taste judgment than me :-)

Yes, the paw prints are indeed an unusual and bold design choice!

Is that Gladius considered a Hispaniensis pattern? It looks awesome!

I also really like that longsword with the trefoil-cut quillons. It looks gorgeous, although a shot of the blade might be nice. Wink

I think the runes say "I am wolfsbane" hence the wolf prints on the scabbard.

Awesome design, I like that sword.
