Post some pictures of Euro swords you all are looking to see come to market, and I'll look into the costs of making them.
Went thru this 4 years ago. Former active member bought a 235.00 Cold Steel British P1796 Light Cav saber then called Craig Johnson of A&A and asked him if he could taper it historically. Craig said no-problem doing it, but the CNC time would run the kid 400.00. He did it. Sword is a screamer. ( I know, I own it.)
So how many folks are going to ante up 500.00 for a correctly balanced reproduction? (Not many.)
I would save up for one without a doubt. There are very few good sabers on the market today and if they are able to produce one then I would not hesitate to buy one.

shotokan: I'm willing to try anything. Don't get me wrong, pool noodles are fine but I am tired of cutting them honestly.

The Levin Lance: All jokes aside, I think you will like the beach mats better than the pool noodles at least.

Ouroboros: Days going well. Getting my table ready for some polishing.

shotokan: I'm not sure but the number of and size of the holes was just mind boggling.

The Levin Lance: Maybe with the shotgun situation it was birdshot?

shotokan: Oh yeh, typically if they come with rifle wounds it's from an ak47... we did have a lady come in several years ago with multiple point blank shotgun injuries. Still don't know how she survived.

The Levin Lance: Anything particularly nasty? Rifle rounds and such?
Jan 24, 2022 17:38:48 GMT
shotokan: lol not yet... tons of GSW's but no sword injuries.
Jan 24, 2022 17:35:34 GMT
The Levin Lance: Seen anything close to a sword wound in the ER?

shotokan: Good morning Ouroboros, how goes your day thus far?
