Very nice! Everything is exceptional today. The boss laid down the law, no more Kukris for now or else it wont be a merry Christmas. I can still look. I'd love a closer shot of the handle. I wonder what it cost to make?
A lovely sword. Congrats! Hope you have a great display set up for it.
It's hard to believe that there used to be people able to use swords that imposing effectively in a battle for an extended period. I get tired just thinking about a sword over 3 lbs., not to mention the damage that gravity, inattention, and a sharp edge can cause on one's pink body when exhaustion sets in.
You don't know the half of it! I followed this sword over the internet as the original collection visited various universities. When it hit Texas Tech, I looked for BF members in the area, asked them to attend the exhibit and take photos of the original for me, which they graciously did!
It was awesome. But I can get a little obsessed, as you can tell.
