    Ladies and Gentlemen I would like to share with you my comrade's main project from last years Blade Show. This is by far the finest modern made sword that I have ever held.

    This was all done by hand. No CNC, casting or pneumatic engraver. The handle is silver with rubies and diamonds. There is Gold inlaid throughout.

    I wish that he and I were not in such a rush to get our projects done last year. I would have loved to document making this from start to finish. I was able to video some of the engraving if you care to take a look.

    Now that is a gorgeous piece. Did you say it was at the blade show last year? I do not remember it and must have missed it.

    Wow, seriously disappointed I didn't check it out and will be on the lookout this year. In rough numbers what would an equivalent piece cost?
