BTW it's left handed, for me.


Yes, I caught that. I have a butt end of deer antler that has a short flat projection, perfectly shaped and positioned for an organic "nagel" but with the curvature it would have to be for a lefty. Which I'm not. But I think it'll have to be done anyway.

Hard part will be sorting out a right-handed buckler.

Here's another one - A&A 13th century cavalry sword with D pommel, based on features from several surviving specimens.

A few months ago I contacted Craig at Arms and Armour about doing a semi-custom version of their production Burgundian Poleaxe. I wanted to 'fancy' it up a bit and gave Craig some very general guidelines, but mostly left it to their artistic license. I just received the piece last night and couldn't be happier.

Note the punch work, and the inlays on the blade, and detailing on the langets!

The original of course is the A925 Poleaxe in the Wallace Collection here:



And here's my customized reproduction:

Well not a weapon, but still a historical piece, and perhaps part of a weapons system!

I just wanted to show off this masterpiece created by Jeffrey over at Royal Oak Armoury. In fact it is in the mail so I borrowed one of their photos. The black finish is natural and comes from linseed oil.

Based on this historical find shown on a site about Warwickshire is this grave find.

Tod's Stuff Landsknecht Dagger
Original: Circa 1510-20


This piece is inspired by an example from the early 16th century located in a private collection. I chose to have a simplified blade form that is a hand-forged hollow-ground flattened diamond cross-section created rather than the complex multi-fullered one on the antique.

I think there should be a warning sign on this thread, as so many awesome pieces will shock you. Happy

Wow is about the only thing I can say...

I'm dreaming I'll get a recreation of some historical sword in Finland recreated by Finnish smith sometime near future (of course in my dreams there are couple swords...). But as a collector of Japanese swords, it's bit hard to get the money for that custom Euro saved up. But eventually I will get it, and reading this thread is very inspiring.

Pure awesome stuff in this thread.

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


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.


It would seem to make sense for A&A to do that. Have they ever offered their version of this sword?

Tim,

That is a really beautiful blade and hilt on your German Bastard sword. I am very fond of multiple fullered blades and that one suits the hilt design very nicely.

J.D.
Love that sword of yours. I have an Albion Ritter, but I did my grip and scabbard in black. That's the coolest pommel type of them all.

My example of a historic item is not as clear-cut as all of the other above, but that's because the historical reference was incomplete..

My commission from Elgur came in late friday.
It came in a very secure package sword and scabard was wraped in cellophane
And certificate of authenticity.
First impression was WOW!!!!!!!!!!! For a blunt sparring sword it has Great balance and very easy to control point and edge.
I worked out with it for about 15 mins moveing through guards and cuts which was truly a pleasure . This sword has a great presence about it for a 37 1/2 inch blade it moves gracefully.
iam totally Satisfied with this commission from ELGUR.

Here's the stats

Total length. 48in

Blade. 37 1/2 in

Blade wth. 2 in

POB. 2 1/2.in From cross guard

Cross guard. 10 in

Handle./ grip. 8 1/2

Weight. 4.2. Lbs

Thx for looking Much Respect All
