I thought it would be interesting to see the breakdown of people's collections in a couple of different ways. I figured I'd start with makers. What's the breakdown of your collection by maker? Here's mine:

Tod's Stuff/English Cutler: 8
Albion: 5
Arms & Armor: 3
Arma Bohemia: 2
Armour Class: 1
Windlass: 1
Revival.us: 1
Total: 21

Happy

Coldsteel x 1. (Bokken)

Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Del Tin: 6 swords, one ballock knife (all thru MRL, back in the day...)
Neil Burridge (all bronze): 5 sword blades, 1 knife blade, 2 axe blades, 2 spear heads
Albion: 1 steel sword, 2 bronze swords, 1 bronze axe head, 1 steel axe head, 1 bronze dagger blade, 1 Norman helmet
Windlass: 1 sword (since rehilted), one spearhead
Mike Kasner: 1 bronze axe, 1 bronze javelin head
Mark Morrow: 1 gladius blade (I hilted it), 1 pilum head
Chris Levatino: 1 bronze sword blade, 1 bronze spearhead
Native Way: half a dozen bronze javelin points, 1 small bronze spear point, 1 bronze axe head
Michael Luznicky: 1 Roman helmet
Joe Piela: 1 Greek Corinthian helmet

I do all the hilts and hafts for my bronze weapons (except the Kasner axe), and I make almost all my own armor, helmets, and shields. Three of my helmets are made from spun brass domes, and 4 or 5 from converted modern Civil Defense helmets ("Ha! One-piece bowls!")--I have yet to dish or raise a bowl in one piece! REALLY want to make more armor and helmets...

My intent was not to limit these counts to swords only. In fact, it's even more interesting to see which makers are represented throughout your collections, not just in the swords.
