Bill - That last one with the long grip is particularly interesting. All are real nice.

It is a very fast sword that can be used 1-handed with ease and the grip is just long enough for me to use with 2-hands. It is hard for me to take photos of Viktor's swords as he polishes the blades and fittings to a very bright level.

Nice! How long is the blade on that second one with single handed grip? Is it 94cm like the original?

Luka,

The blade is 94cm. Handling is pretty close to that of my Albion Gaddhjalt.

Oft reproduced Oakeshott Type XIV sword, published in Records as Type XIV.7.

Original once owned by Mr Oakeshott himself.

Reproduction by Peter Lyon, as seen in the full length photograph which gives some impression of the size of this piece.

Love the quadruple fullers. I wish more production pieces featured multiple fullers.

Nice! I've seen the original in person. It's now in the possession of the Oakeshott Institute, which is run by the guys from A&A. I would love a super-accurate version of that sword someday.

Happy

Some really nice pieces here I haven't seen before, like that Rob Miller XII and Peter Lyon XIV.

There are already comparison shots of my Jeff Helmes Korsogaden sword and original here: http://www.myArmoury.com/review_helmes_korsoygaden.html

Another one is my A&A custom based on the big Ingelrii type X in Zurich: www.myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t=20591

I wanted to recreate the Messer depicted on Brueghel's Peasant Dance (the one in the center, recreating the one on the left is a future task). I managed to find a photo of a very similar historic one, in proper dimensions. blade & sheath were ordered from Fabri Armorum. Fittings and assembly were made here. I published an article referring the process and some personal philosophy. I can send a PDF scan upon PM request.

Sa'ar, that messer is great - I love the detail and energy found in Brueghel's paintings and your recreation really captures that vibe. Thanks for sharing this one!

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it.
