That is a beautiful, beautiful sword and scabbard combo.

I have just one critique. It is not about you or this case, but rather toward the entire sword-making community. Why is it that almost every XIV made today is based on this same design? There are a number of other historical XIV designs from which to draw inspiration.

One exception is Del Tin, which has several really different XIV designs in their catalog, but not nearly at this level of quality.

Beautiful work as always and I do love these handy little type XIV and this is a lovely example in a lovely scabbard.

Well done.

Happy to say that this one is mine!

A lovely little sword, oozing quality.

It arrived on Friday after a surprisingly short wait. I have a review planned, so watch this space!

Cheers,

Ant

thank you Happy
I agree with you, but you should to know that lately I had a few orders with the same sword - type XIV - with the same shape.
It isn't only shape of type XIV which I made Happy
Now I make type XIV from Solingen and big type XIV from Museum in Paris.
A few months ago I made another big type XIV based on sword from Paris.

I look forward to seeing those upcoming swords!

I wonder if sometimes collectors think that this general design is what an XIV is supposed to look like, because of its modern popularity, whereas most of the modern variations are actually inspired by the same historical sword. Another one I would love to see replicated is the small one in 'records' with a type R pommel and two narrow fullers. Unfortunately it would not fit with my collection of big swords.

Oh man, that is gorgeous. Really, I am truly jealous of whomever is able to acquire this beautiful weapon.

Probably because it was a fairly common design, and therefore recognizable and collectible. Having said that, there are others. A & A listed a reproduction of Moonbrand on their website recently, for example, although it was a custom job. I hope it someday enters regular production. I would to own a repro of that precise Type XIV, and name it, "Moonblade." Yeah, I"m a geek.

Back to this sword, WOW! Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin The scabbard really adds so much to the overall package. I love it.

Hello Ant,

Congrats to your new sword.
I am really looking forward to that review, especially because I own and love the sister sword, a really nimble and fine and beautiful piece.

Mateusz,
fantastic work again!

@Markus - congrats on your sword as well! I must get my finger out and write that review - no pressure or anything!

@Mark - great. Now I'm afraid to go to sleep.

Cheers,

Ant
