Wow! That hilt looks great!

I can't wait to see the blade profile now... Cool

I'd enjoy seeing how it looks in black!

Very nice work! I strongly considered getting this one at one time. I can't wait to see the blade. I'm really looking forward to all the other XVa's also. I really love the double risers on the center of the grip.

Keep up the fantastic work!

Nice to see these XVa's starting to come into being! Don't know yet which of the 4 I'll be nabbing, but this definitely has my interest piqued!

I like it. Any chance I could trade in my old Agincourt for this one?? Wink

Seriously, I really think that this new model has an understated beauty.

Wow, nice! That hilt turned out better than I thought it would. I hope to see its full profile as well as a black or brown grip.

Hey, great, the XVa's are starting to come out!

Oh my, I'm starting to get nervous again.

I like that hilt. Too bad it's not mated to a Type XIIa or XVIa blade. I'm not really a fan of the XV and XVa type blades.

Eek! I second that! I ordered a Fiore a while back; can't wait! I'm also with you on the Talhoffer, that one's gonna be a beauty. I like the Agincourt more after seeing it in full. Albion never ceased to amaze.

To quote one of my favourite movies (Ice-cold in Alex): "Worth waiting for"!

I like way the hilt and especialy the guard lends the sword some IMHo gracefull lines. The long and sleek XVa blade looks great.

I'm realy happy I ordered an Agincourt sometime ago, now for the difficult part, the wait for it to get here Wink
