| Finally, someone that has the same interest! I have a great appreciation for all things sharp and pointy.
I have looked at several models online claiming to be celtic in design and most seem to be nothing more than pretty paper weights.
I am always looking for a nice full tang well balanced piece of steel but few offer them for less than $3-400.
I have no pics at this time but will probably post some later.
What sort of blades do you have jime307?

| Hi McRoach. I am glad your interested in swords. You will find a lot of information swords and daggers and "pointy things" lol in this same forum under Arms And Armors even a few photos. I hope you find what your looking for. Will look forward to seeing your photos as well.

| Thanks Rindy, I'll be sure to check that out. I have'nt got the collection I want so far, (who does?), but I must admit my favorite blade so far is my Katana. I love the balance and feel of it.

| Very nice thanks for posting the picture. I like the way you set it on the bamboo. Thanks again, nice sword.

| I have been thinking about adding a nice Medieval Sword to my collection. I want something similar to the picture attached and I really want something well balanced, sharp and would prefer not to drop over $200 for it. Sadly all I have found so far are right about that price and usually a stage style (unsharpened) with a cheap or no sheath included.
Does anyone have some suggestions?

|I also like the knives and swords. I have quite a few knives but am yet to find the bastard sword I'm looking for. I don't want the toys that you see out there or one that would break or shatter because it was poor metal or cooled to quickly. Any suggestions on where to look?|

| Montie, Did you ever find your bastard sword? Every once in a while you can find a good one on Amazon that is made for reenactments. Those can typically be sharpened and quite practical but they average $300+. CAS Swords do pretty well.

| I'm a bit of a sword fan, though my tastes run more to the piratical persuasion.
I started my "collection" with a $50 hanger from a online sword store. I wouldn't trust it to cut balsa wood but it looked good on my belt.
I recently found a blacksmith in the Georgia area who is a very talented sword maker and acquired my "permanent" (until I can afford another) sword. His swords are combat ready, steel on steel or you can cut a tree down if you are so inclined... I think I have attached a pic, if not I will try linking to it.

LouisianaJeff, very nice pic thanks for sharing!
I haven't added any cutlass style to my collection yet but that one looks pretty sharp.
Yes cheesy pun intended.

|Currently, in my "Armory" is a large Two-Handed sword with my clan name on the hilt, a basket hilt Claymore, a rapier, a cutlass, a main gauche, two Scots dirks, and an array of Skien Dubhs. More to come and am interested in manufacturing them. A friend used to make them from leaf springs found in old vehicles...|
