    I haven't read every post in this thread so I'm sorry if this has been addressed but, will this affect sword makers in Scotland like Armour Class? Will I still be able to buy their wares?

    Wow, that's a monster knife! Is the spine sharpened or is it a false edge? I'll be interested to see the finished product.

    As you said, the closest thing to a baskethilted longsword is really more of a two handed sword. It's the Scottish clamshell hilted claymore. The shell guards combined with the crossguard offer a...

    It seems the Hissatsu is now made with 440A steel which is a bit harder than AUS 6. I still think the Tactical tanto is made with better steel but it is worth mentioning.

    Well, I don't own a hissatsu but I have examined one. It's a really great design for what it is intended. My big beef with it is the steel used. AUS6 is a rather soft steel for a hard use knife. ...

    Guess his prices have climed a bit since I had my wife's cutlass made. Still, it makes sense when you consider the prices of other custom smiths. Still, that's a lot of money.
