Black XVIIIb

This slender XVIIIb longsword was a commission from a friend with a love for the dark and mysterious. Guard and pommel are fire-blackened, the blade is acid-etched to give a dark, distressed look. The very slender blade is clearly optimized for the thrust but remains just wide enough around the CoP to deliver an effective cut. Point control is excellent. Overall this is a very light and nimble sword that though mainly intended for two-handed use feels quite at home in one hand as well.
