This was a "secret" project of Peter's - a Type XIV that is a little fancier than the Sherriff, but not as fancy as the Sovereign. The sword shares the blade of the Sherriff but with all new hilt components.



Specifications
Total length: 34.125" (86.7 cm)
Blade length: 27.75" (71 cm)
Blade width: 3" (7.4 cm)
CoG: 4.25" (10.8 cm)
CoP: 17.125" (43.5 cm)
Weight: 2 lbs 6.6 oz (1.09 kg)

Now I can't decide which one I want more, the Sherriff or the Yeoman.

That looks really nice. Not enought to make me regret my Sherriff, but still a very lovely sword.

Another nice job.

Very nice, Howie. I really like the flaring ends of the cross.

Well that just leaves 22 sword models that they have announced but not put into production left to go. :-)

I'm waiting for the Kingmaker, that one looks really sweet!

Still waiting for my Munich...

That's a pretty nice surpise! In addition, I didn't know anything about the yeomen, and it's very instuctive.

Thanks to Albion and Peter Johnsson !

Cheers,

David

Wow, I like that! It's like a more 'sophisticated' version of the Sheriff. I just might have to add the Yeoman to my wish list!

I sure would like to see that Munich... or the Kern... Big Grin

Very cool! Nice to see a surprise sword from Albion! How 'bout some other surprises Peter....? Maybe a type 10a or 11? Or even a 12, pretty common blade type but not a lot of hilt options from Albion.
