This is the NextGen inspired by the Bayerisches Nationalmuseum Sword (which is the next Museum Line model after Turin is complete.) Peter knows the original sword intimately, and it is our goal to bring you a less "gilded" version with the same performance and handling as the original.



The only draft specs we have so far are:

Total length: 49.76" (126.4 cm)
Blade length: 37.2" (94.5 cm)
Blade width at base: 1.54" (3.9 cm)
More specs will follow as this sword is developed.

Best,

Howy

Eek!

I want one.

I want one bad.

This isn't remotely funny, Howy... not at all.

No joke, Mike... put me in for one.

Ughnnnnnnngghhh...

Does it [the blade] share the same characteristics as the original sword??? 'Cause that blade... Unghhg... 3.9cm wide at base... *gargle*

And yes, I got hit in the head pretty hard during training yesterday so, if possible, I'm even more crazy than usual.

Eek!
Incredible!

I had the Earl picked out to fill spot in my collection for a late medieval longsword but now I'm definitely switching to the Munich which looks like something straight out of a Dürer painting.

Heya Gordon,

Sorry, but nope, it is not a hollow-ground blade. The cross-section is a rather stiff diamond, with a small flat at the base of the blade. I had a chance to examine Peter's forged blades for his customer during one of his last trips, and it is a great blade. It should prove to be very stiff and pointy........

Strange. I've been told by various people that the original had some hollow-grinding. This must have been incorrect.

Can I get a confirmation that the Albion version will have a blade that is a close aproximation of the original sword's? Or is the Albion version going a different direction?

Probably saving that for the Museum line version...

I'm not so sure about this. It's possible that they'll be using the same milled blade but with a simplified hilt. But let's not speculate. They'll respond tomorrow Happy
