I think that it is one of A&A's finest creations

Albion Fiore with wire wrap in red. The grip is darker than I would have liked but she is a beauty of a sword. Despite the lightweight looks this sword weighs about 3.5 pounds and truly feels like a sidearm of last resort. Extremely handy in feel, it wants to fight.

I think the disk pommel gets overlooked, people seem to skip to the scent stopper, but I love the utility of a well formed disk. I'd like to see more disk pommels in practice weapons.

Adams, Fiore is a really nice looking sword, I bet the handling is also very good. I have a sword that's very identical to fiore but mine has a pob of 5 and fiore is better balanced.

Thanks, the listed POB on a Fiore is 3.8 inches below the cross but the wire wrap pulls it back to 3.5. Having the weight concentrated at the cross really let's it transition well between strikes. I have an AT1592 Danish style longsword, and it weighs a half pound less and has an 11 inch grip, and the Fiore swings faster and changes direction faster. That really surprised me.

Here is my Albion Gallowglass. It has a green grip, though you wouldn't know that by looking at the photos.

The Gallowglass is my dream sword. Eek!

Such a beautiful blade, and the furniture is exquisite.

Some day I hope to own one as well.

Hey guys,


The Redeemer is meant to be a bastard sword but I think its a good fit. a bit heavy in one hand, but perfect in two. The pommel allows the second hand to fit snug.


Atrim CF leaf blade.
Love this sword

Here is my Longship Armoury Celtic themed bastard sword. I have to get some stats and a review of this one up.

Here's my only bastard (to my knowledge): an A&A Custom XVI/XVIa. It was originally intended to be a dedicated single-hand sword but it evolved into something else. Awesome sword, but I'm still not sure if it belongs in my collection.

That's a brute of a sword, J.D., and quite a fine shirt. Big Grin

...I don't know why that album gets so much flak - in comparison, I tried to listen to Technical Ecstacy and couldn't get half-way through it.

I am going to echo what Michael said J.D. That is a great looking sword and it is always nice to have something you do not think belongs in your collection. A little deviation never hurt anyone, much!
