    New Sword finished.

    It happens to be my birthday, so this was a fitting surprise. I woke up this morning to a text reading, "Your sword is ready." Any sword lover knows what those words can do to a supposedly grown man. On its way from Poland by the end of the week.

    This is the second bit of business I've done with a Polish smith, those guys have it going on. A lot of guys working the craft could learn a thing or two about work ethic from their eastern European counterparts.

    I had no idea how badly I needed a sword until now...
    I was into 10mm Auto before it sold out and went mainstream.

    Beautiful Arming Sword!!!

    Instead of reading through his FB page I'll just ask, are these actually forged the old fashioned way or are they laser cut (the old fashioned way LOL) like Albions? I've been pining for a falchion.

    He works with the traditional process. No CNC or investment casting, ala Albion.

    Wow nice!

    I've never really been a sword guy, but that makes me want to consider being one.

    3 questions:

    How long did you wait?
    How much did it run you?
    And where can I learn about swords and find current swordsmiths?
