Albion Zorro Sword Handling
Has anyone handled the Albion Zorro sword? Thoughts?
This guy, right?

I haven't handled it but here's my educated guess:

Most likely it handles like a large smallsword or small rapier. Really there's a lot of overlap between the two, but what they say about maneuverability suggests that it's more along the lines of a smallsword as those are a little more about the quick action and flourishes while rapiers are straightforward pig-stickers. It's a tad big for a smallsword though, with a 36" blade, but the colichemarde design would bring its balance back enough for agility. 3 lbs seems rather heavy but a lot of that is probably due to the guard and the large forte.
It's certainly an interesting mix of features. 3lbs with a 1" CoG is an interesting mix. I'm a huge fan of Colichemarde blades are there aren't just that many options on the market. I'm really curious about it.
