    and here is the hilt as it is today.
    The pommel was shortened and recarved (lightened).
    A Bronze spacer was added. The grip was shortened and recarved. A Steel ferrule with filework was added between the grip and guard. The Finials on the guard where recarved to resemble floral designs. and the blade was resharpened and repolished to mirror finish.

    Beautiful. Every time I turn around I'm finding another reason to kill you and take everything you have. With that sword I doubt I could though.

    Well it weights a good half a pound lighter, the Point of balance is moved out so its a better cutter, and it just handles so well. It is a mighty sword! Made of mighty steel! Forged by a Mighty smith! Weilded by a mighty warrior!

    Oh? prehaps this sword will run right thru you if you keep it up with the smart@$$ comments. Learn to think before you type friend, comments like that where unneccessary and ad nothing to the conversation. Didnt your mother ever teach you? If you have nothing good to say, say nothing at all.

    Actually, she used to say that honesty is the best policy.

    Sorry that you didn't catch the ":D " at the end of the post. I wasn't putting down you or your sword; I was making light of your comment.

    You obviously need to chill out.

    If you're this quick to threaten people in real life you're apt to get a bullet between the eyes.

    I haven't seen a "professional swordsman" stop one yet.:rolleyes:

    "Real life" has real consequences. Anybody can make threats from their parent's basement from behind a keyboard...
