Three very nice swords Roger that are always a pleasure to see..

I reminded myself that the re-hilted Hanwei Godfred is still in my collection but it is fairly mundane compared to the higher price spread of the reproduction sword market.

The combo from A&A that was once an EIII blade and Duke of Urbino mounts is now remade more to a bastard configuration but hand been just one large handful for me. I don't know if A&A will still do bronze for several models or not.

How about a yataghan to round things out

Cheers

Then there is my growing family of plain American militia swords

Aaron Justice built that based on a photo of a several curved blade swords. I followed suit and did the one to the left. I have a few more on the work table but not finished yet.

Well, it wasn't the Chevalier that I got today - it was the Sovereign! This surprised me because Mr. Sigman had told me he was releasing the other two swords for production first. You don't hear me complaining, however - I've been lusting after this sword for six (I think) years. It was the first one I really wanted, and that want has never abated too much. It also occurred to me only today that it is actually the first single-hander I've owned that wasn't a mall-quality wall-hanger. I initially requested a white grip on it, but Mr. Sigman told me they couldn't do that. So I got it in red instead, and may look for someone to re-do the grip later on.

I currently have two:

First is a Del Tin 2132 that I purchased about 12 years ago. It's a little on the heavy side but still a decent sword.
(Picture is a KOA stock photo but mine looks identical)



Second is a Behmer type 6 from Christian Fletcher Big Grin The blade is by Albion.

Here are most of the ones I currently own. 12-13 century, mostly cavalry length blades X, Xa, XI, XII, XIIIb, and tending toward the more unusual pommel types.

Edit: I've replaced my original photo with a more clear one showing mostly the same swords.

Sorry its such a bad photo; There's not enough sun for good indoor shots lately and its too cold and wet to take swords outside.


Really nice collection

Since I do not have access to these other swords at the moment, and will not for quite some time, here's some online photos of my other single-handers:

Albion Senlac (from Albion's webpage in the USA)



Albion Knight- mine has a very similar scabbard to this one (also from Albion's webpage)

Above: Dutch M1852 infantry officer's saber.
Below: Universal Swords French Mameluke saber reproduction.

I also have an old DSA blade that is currently in the middle of some very extensive modification.

I don't have too many decent images of my swords, but this one shows two of my favourites: an Albion Valkyrja with one of Tod's rather nice scabbards and an Armour Class acid-etched Saxon sword.






The coffee table makes quite a nice backdrop, but that's more by accident than planning!
