A couple of photos of my new longsword from Paul Macdonald.

Overal Length: 50"
Blade Length: 38.5"
Width of blade at hilt: 1 5/8"
Width of quillions: 11.25"
CoG (from quillion): 3.5"
CoP (from quillion): 28" approx.
Weight: 1605g

I haven't had much chance to use the sword, but my initial reaction is that it well balanced and responsive, much like my original sword (also by Paul). The main differences between my first and this one is the diamond profile for the blade and the gothic style hilt which feels very comfortable, the suede finish giving a good grip.

I plan to use this one for drills initially and carry on using my original for contact drills and freeplay (just to keep it looking good :))

All in all I'm very pleased with it.

Regards

Neil

this is what I got.


A picture of the hilt is what I get. I assume you are looking from a rig somewhere, maybe that has something to do with it. Try waiting a bit and see if the photo comes in, it maybe due to a slower data rate (0.8? :D )

Cool sword! 8)

I really like that grip.

Dai, the fart thing is apparently some kind of advertisement. Wait a bit and the pic will come up probably.
