That is certainly some sword. Are you planning on giving it an overly symbolic name?

That is a gorgeous sword! I'd love to have one like it displayed on a wall were I can pick it up and play with it.

I've been referring to it as The Royal Saber, because of the crown-shaped pommel.

Not a bad blade at all... battle-worthy, or is it a show piece?

The hilt/pommel seems to be a little different from original sketches but not bad at all.

How's it weighted and everything?

It's from Darksword Armory. They're based in Canada, they do great work, and I think they take commissions for custom pieces. Their in-stock swords are usually in the $250-400 range. Customs are probably more, but I don't know how much more.

Definitely battle-worthy. Darksword Armory is known for very tough, durable swords.

I don't know all the specs yet, but it's 46.5 inches overall.

Any chance you could post a picture of yourself holding it when you get it? I figure it'll give me at least a better sense of its size.
