... wow ... that's spectacular work, good sir. And great photography, I might add. I may not
always comment on your threads, but I ALWAYS look forward to seeing the step by step
progress of your work ...

I feel a little bad for a fellow forumite though ... somewhere Mr. Patrick Kelly is trying to sell
a kidney ... B-)

I've heard that Philip IV of France may have owned the original on which the Albion Sovereign is based. I bet he would have liked this XIV even more.

Isn't this the same sword Roger? (I mean the original inspiration; Oakeshott's Records XIV.8). Most modern replica XIVs seem to be based off this same basic design, but I've never seen one that replicated the gold plating before.
