This is a piece of mine that I am taking to BLADE to turn over to Bladeart.com.
This sword will be available from Bladeart at the show. Price: NYD

A sort of fantasy Pirate cutlass-
Serrial Number- 2005-098
Length Overall: 29-1/4 inches
Weight: 2lb.6-1/2 ounces
Blade Length: 23-1/2 inches
COG: 3-3/8 inches from guard
COP: Difficult to determine- 18-19 inches from guard?
Blade- Differential Tempered 5160 spring steel, HRc58-59 at edge, HRc45-48 at spine and tang.
Furniture- Cold blued mild steel (1018-1020)
Handle- Desert Ironwood

The photos are, naturally, pretty bad.

Interesting piece, Michael .... bet it will be quite the little hacker !

How comfortable is that grip style, given the pointed swell in its middle ?

Thanks for the preview ! Mac

I have a moderately large hand, so it doesn't present problems for me- nopr did my wife express and difficulty- we'll have to wait and see how other people like it before we know for sure. Thanks Tom!

Correct- Bladeart.com is my internet distributer, and since they have a large booth I just 'piggy-back' with them. Great folks, we always have a good time!
