This is an extraordinary sword performance wise . It is on the heavy side at 3.8 pounds and yet it still is easily used with one hand and is very fast indeed with two. This is probably because of the extra long handle and large pommel which bring the balance back towards the hilt.
This piece as noted in the description is really a collaboration between Arms and Armor who did the blade, Erik Stevenson who did the fittings and myself who did the handle. I believe that this piece very much shows that different people working together can turn out the best in swords.
I am asking 700 dollars for this sword. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or by private message. Interesting trades will be considered.
