Looks like everyone is having a great time! It will be interesting to hear what Nathan and Patrick will tell us about the PJ-designed swords. I handled a couple of them a year ago, and they rock! When Peter returns to Sweden in about a week's time, he will bring along Eric McHugh of Albion, which will provide me with the chance to meet Eric for the first time. There are plans for museum visits, where we will hopefully handle a bunch of originals.

And the two just to the right are both MINE!!!!!!!!! (Yippee, doin' the happy dance .....)

Just for the record, Patrick considers my two to add up to a single real sword, like his new type X. The only thing I have to say is why use cleaver when a scalpel will do the job. And for those doubting Thomases, Howard (using my first PJ) performed the most amazing series of cuts on a mat roll I have ever seen. Hopefully I'll be able to get a copy of the video.

Hey! I resemble that remark!

With all due respect, Patrick's "Big Johnsson" is not a blade I would want to be on the receiving end of. It is a cutting demon that would quickly end any confrontation with devastating consequences.

All kidding aside, Harlan has two of the nicest swords I've seen and handled. While they may be a little light for my taste they are beautifully made. Harlans newest one has wonderful fuller work on its ricasso, as well as very precise file work on the pommel and guard. The pommel is a great study in aesthetics in and of itself. If I could have afforded it I would have bought it right along with BJ.
