    Website change

    My sword website has moved to a new address: Björn's Sword Homepage. The old site will be taken down, except for a few features that will stay until March 31, 2004. Please change your links...

  5. Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: PJ vs Albion PJ

    OK, Gus, I will let people form their own opinion based on what you have written and implied in this thread. As you expressed so eloquently in your email to me and Peter, it was nice knowing you.

  7. Re: Re: Re: PJ vs Albion PJ

    Gus, as Peter is short of time (he's getting ready to go to Albion in a few days for more work on the PJ line), I feel, as his friend, that I have to reply to your latest posts. I'm actually a bit...
  8. Re: Comparison sidetrack?

    Well, as long as Albion replicates the edge bevels (and other characteristics) of the prototypes, there will be no noticeable differences.
  9. Re: PJ vs Albion PJ

    I agree with Harlan; I think it is a bit strong to question the weights of the Albion PJ swords when one hasn't examined the originals oneself. As Peter has stated earlier in another thread, the...

    The Nationalmuseet in Copenhagen has an interesting Internet exhibition of bronze age weapons (and other stuff, but the weapons are what matters to us). Unfortunately, the searchable database is in...

    Sounds a bit strange, I think... After all, Peter's work is closely patterned after surviving medieval originals, which were made by people possessing skills few have begun to comprehend yet. That...

    Most wool blends use 10-30% polyester. If in doubt (and if possible) ask for a small piece to test how inflammable it is before buying.

    Nathan, that is a very nice conversion of the rather lacklustre Merc! Why not describe what you did in the "Home Improvements" forum? This is an excellent example of what someone can do to turn a...

    Yeah, the Brescia is a beaut! I've seen the others, but the Tritonia was in a glass case, and the Solingen wasn't fully assembled. Peter is on a short lecture trip here in Sweden, so I don't know...

    Hi, Anders! Nice to see you here! Your info confirms my impression; that the swords are Czech, and typical for the Czech style of reenactment weapons.

    Re: No disrespect for his work...

    A concession for the re-enactment crowd. The largish pommels are needed to blance the 3 mm (1/8") thick blades, and the longish grips accomodate the heavy gauntlets worn by most re-enactors who like...

    There were 3-4 styles of scabbard worn with the m/1854. The markings are unknown to me, but an educated guess is that it stands for "Göta Träng Bataljon (Göta [referring to the southern part of...
