Fairly nice? That's like saying that the Mona Lisa is a nice painting. The hanger looks real nice and the Wallon sword looks outstanding to me. Great work.

Wow... just looked at your website and you also did a really nice Prussian Pallasch. Very nice work. What kind of steel do you use for your blades? Can they be used for fencing?

Understatement of the week right there. That Walloon looks awesome!

Hi,
thanks for your comments, I´m glad you like it.

For Christopher:
all our blades are hand-forged (from spring steel), hardened at 50-52 HRc.
We make swords not just for collectors, but also for members of reenactments (for fencing in battles-reconstructions, etc.).
Austrian pallasch - here are some pics for you:
Photo A: I made a wooden model first (for brass casting of the basket). Picture shows original pallasch and my wooden model.


Photo B: here´s the original pallasch and my replica.

Coolness factor 11 on the blades as well, thanks for the shots. I really dig the wide fullers and fancy curved tip.
