I love this ... the schiavonas is a very useable onehand-sword ...not a rapier what use only duels ... this can use in a battle. I love it. :-D How much money and time to make a battle ready one for me?
Gorgeous work! I especially like the attention to the "cat's head" pommel. Did you base it off of an existing model (such as were recovered on the Marie Rose) or is this an original motif? I forget if I asked you already, are your swords for museums, collectors' walls or cases or can they be used by traditional weapons fighters?
