Thank you Nathan, I'm glad you like it. After seeing it in "real life" and handling it, I can recommend it sincerely. I really, really like it, aesthetically and handling-wise.

Jean: Thank you. The one I got is actually the 11006 model but with the handle from the 11005 (the one at KoA). Lutel did the handle swap at my request. The 11006 sports a different -and longer- blade and, of course, a different guard. I always thought that the 11006 would benefit from being fitted with the 11005's handle. I think i was right. After you "recuperate" from the Dresden acquisition, yield to temptation!

I'll try and post my first impressions with pictures on a separate thread.

Wow, Oliver, at first look I thought your sword was an original one! Good work!

I recently received Albion's Prince. I requested a blue leather wrap which provides a nice contrast to the bronze pommel.
The Prince is properly named. It is well built, is an incredible feeling weapon, and a sight to behold as well.

A poorly maintained weapon is likely to belong to an unsafe and careless fighter.

I'll second that on the Prince. I received mine last week. No chance for pics yet but it may be my favorite single handed sword to date.

Indeed Mr. Winter, it's difficult to keep my guests hands off it.

I bought this Donnie Shearer-made Beak Nosed Ribbon hilt backsword from a fellow forumite. It is antiqued and looks great. The blade is marked with the running wolf trademark. Very impressive work and looks like a genuine antique. It also feels great in the hand.

I don't remember seeing this one for sale in the marketplace, I might have sold a few body organs to get it if I have seen it. Wink

Mr. Krause:
Thank you. The blue wrapped Prince image is from Albion's site and is the same as mine, so I took the easy path. It's nice to know what you are going to get from a maker. The other images are from Albion as well.

Cheers, Jon

I've always liked the Prince, and the Squire as well- such classic designs.

That schiavonesca sword is fantastic! Lovely proportions, finish, etc. Great to know about that part supplier as well!

This is my last purchase. A beautiful rapier from Bruce Brookhart. Eddie Floyd hilt with a Del Tin blade. Sharp tip, but edges are not sharpened.

William and Sean: thank you for your kind words, for your appreciation, I am very glad you like it. Being a project I researched, elaborated and assembled myself, it means a lot.
Sean: happy to have shared Yeshua's Sword with you. I would not hesitate to recommend him, he is talented, dedicated and passionate about what he does. It was great to work with him.

Just arrived: A&A Milanese Rapier and en-suite dagger! From the marketplace here. Better photos later, but for now it's useful to see these in-hand and together--something you won't find anywhere else online, as far as I can tell.
