Great to see some stuff on smallswords. Although not my main interest, I do find them to be very nice looking sword, and very leathal weapons in their own right.

On a side note, it's really great to read these reviews and articles every two weeks. I know you guys must be very busy with everyday life, and the fact that this group is still able to update every two weeks, it's just amazing guys.

My hat's off you all of you, I really hope that one day I'll be able to do something back for myArmoury.

My thoughts exactly, Thomas. Though smallswords are 300-500 years ahead of my particular period, I enjoyed reading the reviews of these three. Too often do I see the smallsword being synonymous with the rapier before it. Hats off to Bill and Stephen for the great reviews. Happy

Ditto. It is great to see some continued variety from our focus mainly on knightly swords.

Like the others said, it's great to see smallswords reviewed here, but what I really like is seeing reviews about 3 items of the same type, from different makers. This sort of narrowed topic is great! I also appreciate hearing about how a sword does in sparring, not just tracking or cutting.

Yes, diversity in these reviews is a good thing to see.

I've had the good fortune of having wrapped my grubby hands around the PMC small -sword reviewed (via a visit from Bill Grandy & friends) and it is a wonderful thing to behold & hold.

Cheers,
Bill
