This one arrived yesterday, built by Roger Harrington from a genuine Wilkinson Sword blade with the handle fittings made by him to original WS measurements.

I snagged one as well. Nice that they have original blades.

I visited the Wilkinson factory in Acton near Wormwood Scrubs the early 80's. They were still grinding swords and blades on huge stones 8-10ft in diameter. The grinders lay down over the turning stones. Very Victorian.

Thanks for posting.....enjoy!:)

Cheers, waiting on 2 more now, another from Roger with an ebony handle and one from Shing.
And then there's the not knowing what others Roger may decide to finish up...:)

A couple more from Roger, one with, as before, an original Wilkinson Sword blade but this time with an Ebony handle and another with a Wilkinson etched gold titanium nitride coated blade and one of Roger's own handles and guard.
