Angus Trim Short Xa
My Xa.7 Shortie made by Gus Trim just arrived. It is, as you would expect, a sweet and wonderful sword. First, some specs. --
In inches:

Overall Length 29.5
Blade Length 23
Guard Width - 6
Blade Width at Guard 1.75
Blade Width at End of Fuller 1.5
Blade Thickness at Guard 4.5mm
Blade Thickness at Halfway 3.7mm
Blade Thickness 1 inch from Tip 2.2mm
COG 3
Weight 1lb 14oz

I'm not a dab hand with the calipers, so the blade thickness measurements may not be absolutely accurate. The blade, of course is lenticular, and there is no flattened diamond cross-section appearing at the end of the sword, something many sword makers are guilty of.

I'm not a cutter, so, sadly, this piece will not be used that way by me. But I'm sure that it excels at that task.

I wanted to get at least one more ATrim, and this one is a fine addition to that collection.

If I were an archer at Crece, this would be a great sidearm for when the French finally reached our lines.

I remember seeing this one on his Facebook - I certainly like it! Any plans for a scabbard and suspension?

I might possibly get a scabbard for it. Maybe from Sonny Suttles at Valiant. I wish Crusader Monk was still making scabbards.
That's a sweet little piece, Roger. You really ought to have a go with at least one water bottle. It leaves you feeling kinda...satisfied. ;) .....McM
Congrats on the new sword!
That looks like a great sword and I'm hoping to get one now. Just looks like a lot of fun.
Great looking sword Roger. Looks like it would be handy in tight and a good sidearm for an archer.

Definitely keep us posted - it's a beauty! I would be lying if I said I was not jealous!
