I expected to hate this one but it's really really awesome. Extremely tempting.

I'm going to wait for the Fiore but it's going to be hard. Very.

That's going to be a popular one with the WMA crowd.

Cool pommel!

I like it a lot. That's a really good pommel/guard combination.

The past couple of weeks have been a cornucopia of new Albion models.

That is absolutely gorgeous; one of the most graceful hilt designs I've ever seen. Blush

I can't get over that pommel! The pommel and cross complement each other perfectly with the blade. The grip looks just the right length. Oh, how I could go on! But I can't seem to find the words! *fainting* The Talhoffer is definitely a sight for sore eyes! Worthy of the Lourve!

I particularly like the Talhoffer's guard, and I wish there was an example of this type of guard among the single handed swords.

Is it just me, or is the type XVa Peter Johnsson's favourite type of long sword? Wink

The Type XVa is certainly among my favorites! Surviving Type XVa swords are probably the most common type you'll see today, not to mention many of the more 'famous' ones (i.e. the sword of the Black Prince, or the many swords of the River Dordogne find near Castillon). I see many XV's and XVa's in period art. They were the first true 'cut & thrust' swords of the time.

I didn't like the concept drawing of this one at all, but I do like the completed sword a lot. Some very fine lines on this one. Normaly I'm not that fond of scent stopper pommels but this one looks real nice.

Keep up the good work! 6 fine swords in 14 days is impressive from any point of view.

Just got off the phone with Mike. Switched to a Talhoffer w/ oxblood grip! Mike says it's an awesome sword that's lightning quick. Can't wait! It should arrive in about a month. Big Grin

Joachim, you're drooling again... Wink



Jury's still out on this one for me... I'll have to see the next two "in the steel" before I decide. Probably between this and the Fiore for me...

Not just drooling. I suffered a momentary lapse of.... well, everything.

Man, that's nice! I really like how these long XVa's are turning out. So, do we really have to wait another three months to see the last two of these? Thanks, Howy and co.

I think the next new swords we see will be the Reeve, the Bayeaux, the Hospitaler, and the Thegn.

I'm really looking forward to the Reeve with its brazilian eye pommel

The upcoming appearance order should be Bayeaux, Thegn, Reeve then Hospitaler. At least, that's the order I sent out the production waxes. Cool
