This sword is an interpretation of the famous Sture sword. It was made to the measurements of the original. The blade is from Arms and Armor, the fittings from Phoenix Metal Works and the handle from Tritonworks.

Arms and Armor Custom/Phoenix/Tritonworks XVIIIE

Overall Length: 46 inches
Blade Length 33.5 inches
Point of Balance: 2.5 inches from cross
Center of Percussion: 18 inches from cross
Weight: 3.8 lbs
Pommel type: t
Cross type 12
Blade type XVIIIe

Performance Review:
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.

Appearance:
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 ramellis@earthlink.net or by private message. Interesting trades will be considered.

Thanks for looking.
