    What's the pivot? Using washers or bushings?
    What's the blade finish? Bead blasted or grit?
    Are you and Richard building these or do you have gnomes working on them?

    Ohhhh no, you don't get off that easy.

    What was the one coolest antique sword/knife/bow/pole arm/etc. that you handled? It isn't like you're breaking any rules telling us what it was.

    I always considered the basket hilted Scottish broadsword to be a claybeg instead a claymore.

    How was the balance on it?

    You're a blacksmith with great big hands and forearms, of course you're going to crowd the grip.

    Was the balance "lively" or "choppy" or "dead"?

    Yo Mama u think thats too much to ask??
    i thought in the grand scheme of things, and looking at how my peers price something similar that was a fair price.

    It's in there with custom folders for price, but not everyone gets that.

    You custom makers have been working with manufacturers and part of the $$$:eek: reaction comes from the elevated level of product they can provide now. They get 75% of the looks and performance for so much less that people don't understand how much it adds to the cost to get that last 25% hammered out with hand work and skill (and that's ignoring the economy of scale and materials purchase power of a manufacturer with a national distribution/advertising system).

    Larry,
    Custom folders are a different type of knife. I own several and have enjoyed and experienced the difference. If you were asking much less than $350 I'd be wondering where you shaved the cost. Your price is fair in my opinion.
    PM incoming.

    Jim
