„The sword I once admired in one book. That intrigued me with its interesting eight edges pommel shape, Oakeshott type I1. Particularly beautiful fine & gently made inlaid lily in the center. I’m glad I got the opportunity to create it for the customer. The pommel is more massive than classic one and it balances the whole sword. This shifts the pivot point up almost to the tip. The sword has excellent reactions during movements.“
