Does anyone know of a website that might list all MRL swords past (as in discontinued) and present (that includes pictures)?

Thanks,
Jonathan

MRL has been around for quite a numer of years now, and I don't know of any individual site that would have all of their previous swords listed, but both Ereplicas and Ancient Edge have some of their older stuff listed. I don't know whether they actually still have them in stock though. Happy

Jonathan,
I highly doubt anything like that exists at the moment. Their oldest items pre-date widespread use of the internet and widespread purchasing of scanners for PC's. There may be some people out there who have accumulated all of their catalogues over the years, but I don't know of any site that shows or lists them all. It would be an interesting resource, though.

Happy

I do have every MRL catalog from 1988 to about 2003 but its been my experience that they dont scan well. If you have questions about a specific item I can easily find it but posting a photo might be tough.

Thanks for the replies, everyone. I have an MRL sword I received as a gift in 2001. I just can't remember what it is called or the date of the original. I think it was called the Spanish Noble's Sword, or something like that. It is one handed with a broad cutting blade. It has a scent stopper finial that is fluted and the cross bar curves up towards the blade. I have done a few google searches with no luck. It's a little too shiny, but other than that it's a nice looking sword.

Here's a pic of the hilt in case anyone is interested (or can tell me the name of the sword):

Sorry for the poor quality, my camera is not working so I had to use my phone.

Huh. I don't know what that is but that's a cool hilt design. I like the sweep of the guard, though the pommel doesn't quite do it for me. It looks like a soft serve ice cream cone to me. :-)

Maybe I should have some breakfast...
