this is the one sword that I have been waiting so long for as it fits my period exactly. I have to say that this was well worth thte wait. I guess I know what sword I'm buying soon Cool

I agree about the waisted look on the grip-just stellar. wow just everything about this sword makes me want to buy it.

thank you for producing (yet again) another beautiful sword.

Feeling smug, dancing for joy and singing a little Stevie Wonder, "Isn't she lovely, Isn't she wonderful!"

I've been waiting for this one for a long time. I've been feeling blue, but that changed dramatically a few minutes ago. Mine is being shipped today, Cool Cool Cool

Mike, Aaron, Howy and all the rest at Albion, you know I love y'all! :-*

That's a beautiful piece. I've been waiting to see what this one looks like.

Speaking of XVas, any word on the Ringeck?

Very very nice. Big Grin Cool Let us know more when you get it. Wink Happy for you. Big Grin

As usual this one looks even better than the concept drawings and that is saying a lot since Peter's drawings are good drawings !

Now that's one fine looking sword. I agree that the waisted grip adds something really special. I'm especially loving this style grip since I got my Meyer Big Grin

The fiore looks nice, though ( How could an XVa by Albion look bad? Wink )

Yes, it looks lovely, but I'm holding out for the Ringeck too. That, and the need to sell some things to afford a new sword.

As-is, I still think the Talhoffer is the best hilt setup for this blade, with its stark, linear lines.

Still, this is a beautiful sword, and I would really enjoy seeing this hilt set-up on any future XVIIIa's and XVIIIc's... *hint, hint*
