We are tempted by their swiss "degen" and they seem to be very beautiful, and cheap

I have often thought their stuff looks very good, and I have heard it is. I don't have any personal experience to back this up though.

Their stuff looks good.

They use a few different Czech smiths, all of them making good stuff in my opinion.

Looks good, though they're getting more and more expensive.

But then again, I'd charge more for such a dagger. Not that much more, though.

Buth then again (again), I don't pay taxes and I am not making a living out of this. On the other hand it would take me more time, as I don't have all the equipment a professional bladesmith generally uses.

Nice Baselard anyway. I should try to make one some day ;)

It's a bit too Swiss for my taste - you should make something more Anglo/French ;).

Nice! I prefer the second, as the first is very narrow for something that long (if you want to cut with it). The second one is also an earlier style - I think it's based on a 15thC example I have seen in a book. The first one is more early-16thC style.

Hi,
that thread slipped my attention somehow...anyway, I met Jakub from Arma Bohemia in April this year on a living history event, very nice guy (and quite a good presentation of a jewish trader). He had some of the new daggers and messer with him. They looked great and handled very nice, you know, some of those blades that actually.......whisper....and.....suggest......bad ideas when holding them.......
I think the price is okay.
Arma bohemia used to work with Pavel Moc http://www.swords.cz and his former partner for quite some years. Since their split arma bohemia solely works with Mocs former partner whose name I have forgotten. Maybe I'll remember it, but his swords look VERY much alike the Moc types.
