This is fantastic Robert. Your treatment of the bloomery steel has such class and the details in your fittings are amazing. It's work like this that keeps me going.. because I realize I'm nowhere close to where I want to be which keeps up the drive and prevents the stagnation of boredom.

Magnificent work Robert (I'm tempted to say as usual as the rest of the work shown on your website is equally remarkable)

Could not resist adding a close up of the pommel. Would be a shame not to enjoy a closer view, shows how carefully crafted the details are. Simply stunning.

The belt fittings are well matched to the sword. Great work all around!

Now that is a nice sword. It is good to see what a high-quality reproduction of this sword can look like.

Robert, you did everything for this sword that the new MRL replica couldn't do. The MRL version looks okay, but yours is 10,000% better. Fantastic work! You are to be commended, sir.............McM

I believe this sword is just "slightly" nicer than the MRL version. Wink
