Just looking for a good picture of the point on any of the longer Albion XVa's, Agincourt, Fiore, Ringneck etc. I understand they are thicker distally speaking, at the tip? Almost a squared diamond shape? If anyone has a picture that showed this, I'd appreciate it.

Photos by Tom Wood. Agincourt tip:



Not really a square, but the primary bevel is steeper at the tip to support the thrust.

In this image take by Michael Edelson, the Point of the Talhoffer is labeled "7".
