    Find Place: River Dordogne
    Blade Length: 37"
    Overall Length: 50"
    POB: 3" from guard
    Weight: 3lbs 10oz
    Pommel: T.5
    Cross: 11, straight

    Guard is more like 10". The handle color is not my style, but the handling is super sweet cake. Did I say the blade is super sharp with tons of spring? Glad I can say I do all my own heat treat,, gotta treat it right

    The blade I really 37 and 1/2 and the total is more like 50 and 1/2 if you want to get technical. Making that pommel from solid steel was pretty severe. Now to get the hilt prototype for the Silvia over to Greybeard

    It is a good looking sword - out of curiosity, is it a hollow grind?
