This is a question primarily for the folks at albion who will very likely be making my next sword when I am able to afford it. I will want a type XI or XII depicted in one of Oakeshott's works to be recreated for me (I know not to expect an exact copy but I remain committed to something as close as it can get). To that end I may want some inlay in the blade as was very commonly seen in historical examples but very rarely seen in reproductions today. Maybe a word or simple design inlayed in copper or brass (maybe lead?). So I know something like this would really raise the price of the piece. So is there any information that would give me a ballpark of the amount to shoot for in terms of saving. I have an Arm's & Armour custom which Jason is currently working on for me that has a copper cross inlay in the pommel that cost only $800. I know that a sword that I would commission could greatly exeed this amount. But I guess I am wondering-- could such an inlayed sword from albion cost over $5000.00 because around that price point I may be forced to adjust my aim as a collector. Any information would be helpful. Thanks

When getting quotes on custom swords, it's best to do that business in private with the sword maker. My completely uninvolved opinion is that you're no where near the $5,000 mark.
