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.
There still are such capable people; including yourself. The trick is not to try and swing it around like a tennis pro but let the weight work for you instead.
