Do we know what the numbers where for how many of each sword were produced in total?
This fantasy sword line may have Hindenburged, but those that purchased one of these blades is now an owner of a particularly limited edition weapon. I'm a bit disappointed that the Aelutian Gladius never made it to production.
I was going to buy one but opted for their grosse messer instead which was a giant mistake as it turned out.
There were two versions of the Aelutian gladius in the Eletreus timeline. The early pre-Empire version is the one Scorpion Swords makes. The later Imperial version was also a member design, and it didn't make it into production.
It was my favorite of the BCI swords. And I really enjoyed rendering Aofie for the webcomic... she was a fun character.
Tbh I consider doing things with it on my own lol. Just for the heck of it.
But I keep forgetting how lazy I am. I'm a man with too much to do is how I justify it 😂
Super happy you and raylon enjoy the sword design lol. It takes the place as a ceremonial tool for me at the moment since there's not much I can do in an apartment
But renting a house is in my goal list for the next couple years. If I can score a place outside of a city I'll be pretty stoked. Lotta acreages to rent I think
"A man with too much to do is how I justify it"...exactly, "well I should probably start with a drink" lol
And space is a serious consideration. When I lived in a city apartment, I had my bedroom become a dojo (thank god for wood floors) with my bed crammed into a corner. Thankfully guests enjoyed the living room and dates didn't mind the peculiarities.
All the swords we brought in have been liquidated and the only swords still available are those that Scorpion Swords made, albeit rebranded as generic Fantasy Swords and renamed.
I posted about it in more detail here at the legendary swords blog - plus there's also some info on what direction the LS site is likely to take from here and some behind the scenes stuff, including previews of a prototype that was in development when the project was canned (but will still be made as a one off custom for my lifelong friend who designed it - though as a one off the cost of brass molding and the detail that will go into the design makes it incredibly expensive).
Some previews of where this one off is up to - the Sword of the Sakkala Spider Riders - a spider themed blade with steel 'fangs' running down both sides of the ricasso and clusters of black obsidian spheres held by cast brass claw like hands representing the eyes of a spider.
While it has been disappointing that the only way we could sell everything was to liquidate it - at least some of the funds invested have been recovered and we can move on to whatever is next.
When things like this happen in life, you have two choices: either give up completely or change course. Personally, the only time I give up completely on anything is when it is clear that the original course is fatally flawed, otherwise I firmly believe that where there is a will there is a way..
One day that site will find its direction - but for now, well, I return you to your regular programming..!
A big thank you to everyone who participated in the project in one way or another. And for the lucky few who were able to grab one of the deals before they all disappeared, hold onto it - they could well become valuable collectors items one day...!

RufusScorpius: I've been busy since I got home. if N America wasn't enough for me, we are expanding this year into Latin America. Because I don't have enough on my plate as it is.
