Every time I see this topic come up, I keep thinking John whipped it out or something...
If it were NSFW that would be a reasonable assumption.

I like that it has a vaguely middle eastern style in the curve of the blade but overall looks quite western. Beautiful lines on it.

Thanks. As I understand it, blades with that sort of shape were actually used in Europe before the middle east. They go back to the viking age (in more primitive forms).

I don't know much about the evolution of sword shapes, so I wouldn't be surprised that things associated with one area really have nothing to do with it. The shape just brings to mind a scimitar, but only very slightly.

I see it as more of a falchion in some respects.

I originally envisioned it a little thinner and more saber-like, but it came out a little fatter and more falchion-like. Not that I'm complaining.

I hate you! I hate you for showing me something completely fucking awesome that I want and could even sorta afford but could never justify spending the money on! I could have a custom oriental blade made T_T and it's live-blade too. YOU'RE A CRUEL MAN JOHNE!

In all seriousness, that blade is beautiful man, be proud.

When I die, they should process my blood into an energy drink - it'll be called Vampiric, and one dose will cause diabetes... Also, you might see noises.
