I made the saber by analyzing the best examples of original sabers.
The blade has power and lightness.
I hope my friend is happy.
Thanks for watching . Greetings Tomek

That is amazing work Tomek! I'm generally not a big fan of sabers, but your work could just about convert me!

Your fuller work is fantastic Tomek!! The transition of the different fullers is beautifully executed!
I am very happy I have a saber on order with you, might want to change the blade to this specific one.....

Best regards,

Marcus

You know, I think its time TK comes clean and tells us the truth ...

He's been possessed by the spirit and enthusiasm of Wojciech Zablocki ...

If anyone here is relatively new to the history of the Polish war saber as it evolved in
the -- if I remember correctly -- 15th, 16th, and maybe the 17th centuries -- you might
want to investigate this book ...

https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B01HC108HY/ref=tmm_other_meta_binding_used_olp_sr?ie=UTF8&condition=used&qid=1525261738&sr=1-1

I have a copy. I dunno if Amazon's " pricing " is realistic. I seem to recall paying about
$ 50 for my copy from a gentleman's website hi-lighting books and antiques on this topic.
As I look at the book at this very moment I don't see a price on it ...

Maybe I should put it in a safe, eh ?

TK, your work is starting to leave me speechless. B-)

Hello! I have one of your sabers!
Excellent work- just curious; the hilt is a little loose. How can I tighten it?

Also how
Much is this sword you displayed?

Thank you

Amazing work Tomek. Do you have an ‘in stock’ section of your website or do you work off commissions alone?
Thanks.

I have to agree that the blade geometry, fullers wide and narrow are amazing in detail and in their transitions, aesthetics and I would imagine beyond the skills of most makers ...... WOW !

The other decorations on hilt and scabbard are also amazing, but the blade really took my breath away.

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

I like this a LOT! The detailing and the shaping of the hilt components are very pleasing. And that may be my favorite saber blade ever!

The owner has been very happy with this lovely saber for a while. But he's not so good with taking photos to show the saber truly beautiful.

But I can show a couple with the matching Palacz that Tomek made for me a few years ago. Everything about this set is wonderful, excellent lively feeling and handling. Tomek really knows how to make a live blade. The fittings and sheath and etching are all extremely high quality and most people can never touch this skill.

But as Jean and others notice, the blade geometry, fullers and balance are really a true wonder. I'm sorry my pictures aren't very good, but I put the palacz and szabla together with a very nice szyczak (zischagge Deut.) from Royal Oak Armory.
