The owner of Arms and Armor's Moonbrand repro wouldn't so happen to be on this forum would he/she?

I'm curious about it's handling characteristics, presence, etc.

Hi Leelund

I believe he is but I know he was away from home base as he visited us at the Ren Faire recently. I might be able to answer some stuff for you. What are you trying to find out?

Best
Craig

I've been long curious about Oakeshot's favorite sword. I wanted to know how it feels in the hand. Is it on the more "choppy" side or more on the "floating" balance side? Apart from that I just wanted to get some general impressions of the sword.

I assumed/was hoping it would've been shown off by now. Haha.

Curiosity's been killing me.

Thanks,
Leelund

I have a more specific question for Craig Johnson, who I assume is very familiar with handling the original at the Oakeshott Institute. How does your version compare to the original? Is there anything you would do differently if you did it over again?

I had the same notion of asking A&A to reproduce 'Moonbrand', but someone beat me to it.
