Robert this may be a stupid question, but, are you in any way related to Pavel Moc? Again, congratulations on the masterpiece!

Hi Robert
Congratulations on an other migration master piece as you know they are my most favourite sword of all
You can only wonder about the craftsmanship that goes in to making of this type of sword and you have done it again.
Once again congratulations to you and the owner of this fine sword

Regards

Jerry Monaghan

This is just fantastic. A masterpiece. I really have a hard time understanding how such a thing can be made by a single craftsman. It's stunning.

It's wonderful. Several things really come together. I like the grip and the burl wood especially. Although it isn't based on a single element, everything just works. Well done!

I keep looking at it. I swear my eyes are getting watery. Damn ninjas cutting onions. It makes me emotional to know that there are people like you in the world Robert. Your remarkable talent is a gift to us all. Keep hitting that steel brother.

Well done Robert. Your new spatha is gorgeous. I think I see aspects of the Valstenarum sword from Gotland. I am very impressed and as usual, the workmanship is top notch.
