What is you favorite modern day sword maker? I'd have to say mine is Angus Trim. Man I sure like his work.

I really love this Dagger.

I really like Atrims. But for the higher end stuff I like Al Massey, Kevin Cashen, and Howard Clark stuff.

Why buy fake swords when there are usually a couple of real swords for sale in my sigline? ;)

(There's a Prussian infantry officer's sword and a beautiful Saxon officer's karabela-type saber [both with sword knots] for sale there now... :cool: )

I really love this Dagger.

Perdy, a work of art...are they for sale? I did not see any prices?

Never underestimate a basket-hilted broadsword.

And I love Randall made knives.

For those of you in Florida, you should know them. Their knives went on Apollo missions. They could cut the skin of a Huey helicopter. And STILL SLICE A TOMATO!

Well, they're beautiful at any rate.

Most stuff on David's site are things done in the past. Drop him a line. His prices are reasonable and his service is great. I have several of his knives and I've never been dissappointed.

Mineral Mountain Hatchet Works. I have one of their kindjahls and find it to be an utterly excellent piece. If one is going to own a sword, one might as well go with the sword (or a varian thereof) used by one's ancestors. My folks came from kindjahl (also rendered in English as kinzhal) country. I hope to own a good vintage one someday. The present production stuff from "over there" that I have seen is tourist junk, as are the Indian-made ones that Atlanta Cutlery offers from time to time. I guess after the AK became the "traditonal ethnic weapon" in the area, production of good quality kinzhals became less than a priority.

Look here, not that I can afford their stuff. But they know what they're doing, and have been doing since the 18th Century:
