I'm not sure what the site owner's policy is, but I think that when one posts information on a public forum, one has to be prepared for some open discussion!

I think its a very nice looking sword. With those dimensions and weight, it should be very lively for a sword of this type and era. Also, I particularly like the boat shaped cross, which looks like an elongated viking cross. At that price, a hand made sword and scabbard are a great buy. If I hadn't bought one of similar type recently from Maciej I would be sorely tempted to buy this sword before your prices go up.

A couple of minor critiques:
1) the grip size seems historically accurate, but I like a thicker grip. Also the shiny leather suggests that it might be a bit slippery?
2) the blade profile taper looks very linear in these pictures, which is usually more typical of later centuries. If you look closely at the original, it has a slightly curvilinear profile.

But as they say on 'Forged in Fire'; overall, nice job!

I do have one question. Are you related to Mateusz Sulowski?

Regards, JD

Hallo J.D. Crawford
You have got the right. I will answer all questions on forum. I was try to make it like it is in oryginal find. The sword after hardening is straight, so I am happy with it.
To the skin on scabbard it is not so shiny but it look like that on pictures. I think it is not slippery.
Mateusz Sulowski is my brother. In the past we worked together but it was other kind of blacksmithing. Thank you for your opinion.

Greetings

I like it very much Damien. Excellent work on the scabbard tooling. Very interesting to see you develop sword making.

FWIW I have an axe from Damien just from this spring. It's very nice and I can recommend his work and shipping to USA.
