Hello
Have you ever been browsing the net and came on a sword that you had to say" WOW..I wish that was mine!" but know
for some reason it never will be,too expensive or to rare or to exclusive. Well I invite you to share your pain:-)
I`ll start with a messer by Peter Johnsson. I could cry.....

I'd have to say I agree with you on your pick there. I love that messer.

I made this topic that is basically the same:

Oh, wow. That might be my favorite messer ever. Coincidentally, mine would also be Peter's work. His Vorpal Sword: http://www.peterjohnsson.com/vorpal-sword/

Peter Again.

What really hurts is that I had an opportunity to purchase this sword. But with two kids entering daycare at the time I was too uncertain about my finances. Probably should have sold off half my collection for this one.

This exercise is the sort of thing Frankie and Willie would think up.

The first unreachable sword that came to mind was Jake Powning's Du-Sith.

Du Sith would be a very close second for me. I thought very hard about buying that one myself and never did. That was around the same time I picked up my Svante, so I think I figured I'd thrown enough money at swords for a while. I was a fool! A fool, I say!

One of these.


Similar daggers were made of iron in later centuries, and I'm planning to try to grind one from mild steel for Achaemenid reenactment, but nothing has the romance of bronze -- a sword from the same period as the Trojan War, the Sea Peoples, the Exodus, perhaps even the time of Zarathustra.

Probably everything from TEMPL. An example is the Sword n° 223.

At that price I could buy a couple of fun sword, but it is so beautiful!

As long as we are wishing, my list would encompass many. Both reproductions and period swords call me at a wide range of budgets. I suppose something I'd really want is a sword from Michael Bell. A katana I should have ordered twenty years ago.

At the top of my watch lists right now is an early 19th century eagle pommel. Something I don't really need but to have just because. I suppose if I rotated some of what I already have, I could scratch that itch. Low four figures, why not, right?

Cheers

GC

Oh yes... wishes, dreams.

Yes, I may have a slightly unhealthy fascination when it comes to that particular albino.

I know this is not exactly from browsing the net, yet for me it's clearly the sword Robert Môc made on a commission from Tim Lison based on the monster long 1-handed Danish Esrum Lake sword.
Why this one? Because I helped research it going through old Danish books Laughing Out Loud
Some day I'll have to get my copy as well Wink
