This link came my way today. Sad news, but I thought it was an interesting read. I don't suppose anyone has any documented images of this sword?

Thanks for the link Jeremy - I never knew of this sword. An amazing story.

I found a few pics from the sword's presentation: not very clear, but that's one monster blade!

Greetings,

Here is a pic of the scabbard in progress. It would be really interesting to see a close up of the hilt.

Cheers,

Nate C.
