I am attempting to make an XVa sword. I have made other swords, single handed XV, before using 40mm x 6mm spring steel. I cut out an XVa profile using the same stuff and, to be honest, it looks pretty flimsy! The steel is good stuff for a 33" blade but at 39" blade length it looks like a tooth pick. Would 50mm x 8mm be better? My gut feeling is yes. The XVa blank I have looks like an epee!
