How much? I have an order in that the blade hasn't yet been cut. Depending on the cost, I might change the order to this.

Edit to add: I asked Mike Sigman and he says it's $1430 USD and maybe going up soon... So I think I will stay with my current order.

Wow! As a proud Albion owner (the Stamford I ordered whilst visiting your shop has been serving me well for years now), I gotta say, that sword turned out even better than I thought it would!

"XVIIIc" in Oakeshott's typology was a variant that never really resonated with me-- but this, and its accompanying "Alexandria" model-- just might change that...

Well Done!

Man, that's an imposing one. Of course swords would be all over a battlefield, but seeing that in the hand of an opponent must give pause...
The subtle tongue, the sophist guile, they fail when the broadswords sing;
Rush in and die, dogs -- I was a man before I was a king.
-- R. E. Howard, The Road of Kings

I understand there have been a few of these delivered but to my knowledge only one informal review posted on sbg. http://www.sword-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&...76#p215676

I would love to hear from those that have received theirs, thoughts & comparisons?

Thanks

Paul

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person

O====[::::::::::::::::::::::::::::>

Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

—Alfred Lord Tennyson, Ulysses
