Very nice and very clean Maciej. I think this fully addresses my earlier comments - its clear from this example that when you leave certain elements of earlier swords rough or asymmetric, you do so by deliberate choice, not from lack of skill. -JD

Stunning, Maciej, absolutely.

Thanks, Jon


A poorly maintained weapon is likely to belong to an unsafe and careless fighter.

thank you all for good words.
J.D. - thanks - this is very important for me!
"Brescia" goes to new owner today - sharp and ready for cutting Happy

so, I`m working now with this monster from Musee des Invalides Happy I call this falchion "Le Boucher"...
This is not custom order - I`ve always wanted to do some cutting tests with this particular falchion...

Maciej,

Do you have any close-ups of the point section of your Brescia sword?

I recognize this one, nice appealing work all around (this and what I can see from your site).
Are you working on this recreation from pictures or did you manage to get data (blade thickness etc) or measure the weapon itself?

You need an English website now!

Cheers,

J

thanks Julien, yes I`m thinking about englich version - but first I will rebiuld hole website - next year I suppose.

about the measurements - I`m trying to obtain all available data when I`m working on recreation. with this one falchion - I couldn`t find the thickness... (maybe someone have it?)
I like when the object have all detail data with thickness, cross-sections, weight, PoB, CoP, etc...
but sometimes it`s very difficult to have all these parameters...

the thickness of my falchion is about 5mm at the base, and 1,5mm near the point (now) - the weight before final grinding and sharpening - about 1600g. I expect that final weight will be less that 1500g, maybe 1400g.
any suggestions are welcome Happy
