I bought this Angus Trim Xa.7 a few months ago. It's a terrific little sword with a 23 inch blade.

Ooh, not seen this topic before.

Here are a couple I got early this year, Albion Yeoman and Maximillian with tod's stuff transit scabbard..Got a scabbard for the Yeoman as well but not taken pictures of it yet, I probably don't have to say it but I will, both Tod and Albion do absolutely stunning work.

Preben--If that's a transport scabbard, I'd be PROUD to wear it. Heck of a lot better than my stock scabbards!

Roger--If you ever decide to part ways with that baby, let a swordbrother know! That would be a perfect sword for my little, short wife! Laughing Out Loud

Great looking swords, both of you!.......McM

Nice swords Preben. I once had a Sovereign, those Albion Type XIV's are impressive.

I notice Albion have changed their makers mark.

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, but that which it protects. (Faramir, The Two Towers)

Thanks, I do love the type XIV, indeed.

And yes they seem to have changed it, my Crecy which is a year older is smaller and doesn't have that darker color inside, I quite like it myself.

Pattern-welded Viking sword by Michael Pikula. One of the batch of seven he made last summer. I bought this through Kult of Athena, who did a fantastic job all around. The sword itself is exceptionally well made and gorgeous. It has a wide, beefy blade, and is definitely on the heavier end for something made for a single hand. On par with Albion's Tritonia.

This is my second piece from Michael not counting the run of "little seaxes" he did a while back. His work is amazing and I hope he does more of it.

Here is my latest and favorite... can't say enough wonderful things about the Vigil, especially with the diamond wrapped grip. Thank you to all who gave me input on an older post that helped me to decide on this particular grip choice over the cord wrap. Also, the DBK scabbard is truly fantastic... Brian's work never ceases to amaze and as soon as I saw this scabbard I knew I needed to purchase this sword.

Del Tin has a fairly new model out - DT7167, a late 16th century Hungarian sabre. It is described at Del Tin's website and also at KOA as a late 15th century piece, but that is surely a typo - the 16 in DT7167 indicates that Del Tin considers it 16th century. Mine has been customized by Jimbo Curry. He took off the gray Del Tin finish, wrapped the grip with red-dyed rayskin, and incised decorations on the langets,grip and pommel.

Almost all modern made sabres are inferior to the originals, but this one is pretty good. It has an overall distal taper of 67% with thinning all the way down the blade. It balances more than 6 inches down the blade, but I believe that is fine for a sabre.

Here is a link to its entry at KOA. . - http://kultofathena.com/product.asp?item=DT7167

Roger,
Nice piece with great upgrades. Happy Congrats! It's nice seeing good production pieces dressed up and made really unique.

Happy
