well - thank you all guys Happy
Matthew - I`m just working always at the same time with a few pieces - and then - when it comes to finishing - you can see also a few swords Happy
now - for example - I`m on the finish with second Brescia sword and another viking type H - reconstruction of the sword from river Vaal - bigger sword - real beast (about 2kg weight, 60mm blade width) ... I will show you the results of course soon...

This has long been one of my favorite swords and I've always longed to see a recreation. Looks great! I'd have loved to see the inlay like the original but I like it clean like this too! Very, very cool sword!

How can one contact you for ordering or prices? Your website seems to be only in polish...

Greetings,

thank you.
Robert - I was looking for it - but no - only pictures from the books...
I was asking the museum but they didnt answer - and this is too far from my place...
ion the book the measurements are quite well described - but only with drawings...

I will do the inlays on that one - but only with oxide - it depends on budget in this case Happy

Here is a nice drawing I have of the whole sword... It's more complete than the drawing in Marek's book. I don't know the source unfortunately...

I concur! You are on fire lately, lots of goods out of the shop.
Your website has a lot of content, but can't find any prices in there, which is a shame (I bet lots of potential customers would love to get such details). Again, an English version would be nice too (I know I repeat myself Happy ).

Nice Facebook page too, lots going there as well.

Anyway, very nice work, and damn good looking invalides falchion - keep it up!

J

Thanks Julien! nice to hear that.
website will be in English - but I dont know exactly when... the problem is that I have to do it all myself - alone.
I`m just trying share informations with people - in Poland was no such website before - it takes me a lot of time to build this and gather new stuff, preparing publication texts and photos... some people from Poland already want to help me with this - thanks to them!
about the prices - there can be no price list for museum handmade sword reconstructions... it depends also on the details and custom wishes - not only on particular sword example... anyway- I will think about this in future Happy
the point is that for me it`s not a business - but the art and passion.
thank you for your opinion and important suggestions ! Happy
