So, this last few weeks has seen my Irish sword collection grow by three swords.
So far, we have three Windlass-based customs, a DelTin, a DelTin custom and my new A&A Irish.

I snapped a pic of 6 of them (One, an Irish basket-hilt cutlass isn't quite finished enough to show off yet.)

From left to right: Windlass with a custom oak grip, Windlass with custom grip, cross and pommel, Windlass with custom grip and pommel, DelTin with a custom cross and ring pommel by Iron Wolf Forge and a new grip, Arms and Armor Irish sword and DelTin's Irish sword.



Lemme tell ya, I LOVE being Irish!

I am at Bristol EVERY weekend....because if I don't show up, Oh Susannas Leather doesn't open! Stop by! Say Hi! I'll be there from 10am to 7 pm! LOL

Seriously, though. I'd love to meet you in person!

Great looking group! I would love to see a full length pic too, to see the blades. Get yourself a Guiness for having such a nice collection!

Thanks Tim! I'll drink to that! (Grabs a Guinness!) Here you go!



I took it from above the hilts, so, I had to flip the photo over. Don't mind the upside-down date! Happy


Sean-
Of course I saw that thread! I LOVE the pics. I do wish more "Key"-style crossguards survived. But the flared and curved examples make me giddy, too!

Thank you!

Looks great! Thanks for showing the blades. I think I like the Del Tim on the far right the best. The cross is just cool!

I'm missing one in the picture. I'm in the process of making an Irish cutlass with a bar-basket hilt with keys on the crossguard under the cage.

I'll add to the thread when it's finished.
