Hello does anyone have any experience with Mr. Gael Fabre's work:
https://www.gaelfabre.com/galerie/

The only place I've seen some discussion about his work is here:
https://sbg-sword-forum.forums.net/thread/34563
http://myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.14160.html

but most of the commenters have not handled his work.

Are there any reviews on swords he has made?

How is the fit and finish?

How do they handle and how is the balance?

How do his swords compare to some other prominent makers like Mateusz Sulowski: http://sulowskiswords.com

or Tod's Stuff: https://todsworkshop.com ?


To me his work looks really good on picture and he seems like a really nice guy, just looking for more information about his work and how it handles and compares.

Thank you[/url]

I have actually wondered this myself, I've been finding myself looking at his work regularly the past months and it does look really good, hoping someone here can give some first hand opinions.

Yea, he does some real good work, I would like to read more about reviews of his work, who ever commissions his stuff is keeping it to themselves, making me very jealous haha.

I own one of his swords. That sword is among the very best I have seen, superb handling, fit and finish finer than Albions, and I prefer the aesthetics to Mateusz Sulovski (although that are nice swords as well, lines a little to crisp in my opinion).
I never handled a sword made by Tod, but many Daggers, and those are fantastic.
Gaels swords are not overly expensive, if you go with his modern steel line.
Hope that helps.

Thanks for the reply Markus. If you don't mind me asking what sword by him do you own? Got any pictures?

That does help. Thank you.
