Hell
Here`s a question for owners of the Longship Line Silvia,by John Lundemo. How good a cutter are they?
How do they handle? Are they well balanced?Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I myself haven´t held and tried this ´weird-looking´ sword yet.
Anybody?

Well, I haven't tried the Silvia myself but my favourite DS were Longship John Lundemo made. I also have plenty designs that were made by him. All of them cut EXTREMELY well. You can goto my youtube and check my test cuts video.

I have a friend who has got 2 Silvia, using them all for cutting practice. So you guess how good they are that someone has to buy 2.

To show you some examples, the following videos were done with Longship John Lundemo stuff:

So you got a good idea how well his stuff will perform. Silvia is one of the swords that I would not hesitate to buy to be used in my style.

As of Silvia being weird shaped. I dun think so. Chinese bagua dao is of very similar shape. That's why the Silvia would work in my hands. Happy
