Not had any experience of them I think they are a fairly new company,I'm sure they posted something on here earlier this month advertising that they are open for business

The swords on this homepage looks interesting, but I couldn't find any prices? Has anybody contacted the smith. I hadn't managed to get the email address or activate the contact link (perhaps my browser has problems with the homepage...)

Richard Marsden lists them (and them alone, except for the Hollywood Combat Center) as producers of Polish sabres for HEMA in the recently released PDF on the subject. Name seems to be Wojciech Szanek.

Richard tells me that the sabers he received were very well made overall but that the blades got chewed up pretty fast, not Hanwei Hutton fast, but a lot sooner than one would expect.

This may have to do with the specifics of the blades Richard had made, certainly it wasn't enough to turn him off of their products.

I think some errors in translation caused some confusion over price (I think Richard ended up being under charged at first, not sure if he was billed again later or not,ifnot he saved $200 USD!), overwise Richard had a overall goo experience with the production of a pair of customer sabers.
