Hello community,

As the title says, I am looking for someone to give a thorough and honest review about one of my swords, to be posted on myArmoury and other forums of the sort. You know, the usual affair with detailed description, pics, maybe a cutting video. A video review (or both) would also be a possibility.

I would of course cover shipping both ways but will not offer any further compensation, to avoid any bias.

I would like someone experienced in this hobby who has already done several reviews of high end swords and who is seen as a reliable source of information. Ideally an avid HEMA fencer and test cutter who can give reliable input on not only aesthetics but also functionality.

I would much prefer for this person to be located in Europe. Shipping a sword is an expensive undertaking.

If you're interested, please get into contact with me!

Note that the sword I will be sending to be reviewed doesn't yet exist. It will (hopefully) be completed this summer. I'm just already starting to get things organized Wink

Hallo Lukas,

well if you want, I can always review your work.
We could even do it together.

If you would be interested, write me a mail…you've got my mail address.

All the best

Herbert

Hi Herbert, thank you for the offer! I might get back to you on that... I already have two volunteers for this time but I value your opinion and since we tend to run into each other on a fairly regular basis, I'm sure I'll find a possibility to hand you something to review Wink

On a more official note: I'm very happy to say that Peter Smallridge of the Waterloo Sparring group and David Rawlings of the London Longsword Academy will each be doing a review of a longsword I will be sending to them upon completion. Both Peter and David are well known and experienced HEMA fighters and instructors who I am sure will give an honest, reliable and accurate review of my work, both from an aesthetic and a functional point of view.

I would like to thank all who have volunteered, suggested someone or otherwise got involved. I absolutely did not expect this flood of offers. Thank you very much, I really appreciate it! I am sorry I had to decline so many offers, I will keep you all mind though because there might be a next time Wink
