VERY nice. I really love the red grip with black risers. Is there a slight downward curve to the guard, or is that an optical illusion?

Impressive. I love some early longswords!

Is edge sharp or blunted?

Wow! Very cool... In the pictures on your site, is that "Hamon" formation?

Very nice Robert!
Beautiful material. Strong sense of style. Great proportions.
A fine sword any way you look at it :-)

Thank you for showing.

I will agree with pretty much what everyone else said thus far. That is a really beautiful sword. I like that fuller a lot, which appears to be a bit wider than typical for a great sword, at least to my eyes...

A nice sword, if a little later than my interest. I know this is about the new sword, but I just wanted to say that I usually can't get into your website. But this link allowed me to see your gallery. Just stunning work! I would dearly love to have one of your migration era spathas. I can's say enough about the beauty of your work.

I love your Viking types swords in the gallery. The Type Q speaks to me for some reason. I am not sure how much one of these would be, but I will have to start saving my pennies.

Stunning metalwork - and I love the two tone effect on the grip. Is that actually done with separate leather? Or just very careful dying?

Damn, what a beautiful sword. Great work.

How much does it cost the owner to have you made the sword?

Simply stunning. Probably the cleanest and most majestic modern reproduction of a great sword of war I've yet seen. Nicely photographed too. Well done.

Not sure how I missed this. And I just noticed that it is bloom. Wonderful Robert. Such an inspiration.. your work will affect what I do for some time. I'm glad to see you've done this in bloom. I hesitate doing this with such long blades as the modern criteria of performance infects me.. sadly. I'm very glad to see there is interest in bringing a blade like this to life.
