I had the pleasure of going to the 2012 Park Lane Arms fair with Peter Johnsson to show a few Albion Swords - and just wanted to share a couple of pictures from the fair. Thank you very much to all who visited our table :-)

I love that Peter used pommels as paperweights! Laughing Out Loud

Fantastic photos from what looks like a wonderful event. I really REALLY want to read that article on geometric proportions in sword design--is there a way it will be available to purchase or read on-line?

Thanks for sharing these pics!

Is it reasonable to say that with the work he does and the knowledge he has that Peter will one day be recognised for his contribution to our modern understanding of swords in much the same way that Ewart Oakeshott now is.
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, but that which it protects. (Faramir, The Two Towers)
