I much prefer that Mortuary Sword to the Cromwell one and the other isn't really suited to my tastes anyway.

Mortuary Hilt Sword

What do you guys think of this sword? It's something i've never really liked before but I saw it the other day and was a bit blown away by it. I feel it would really add to my collection of western swords, there's three versions of it but I prefer this one: http://img161.imageshack.us/img161/8616/sh...

I've got into my uni but they changed the course that I could do. May have to fall back on my insurance offer although I wont be too disappointed with that as the degree seems a bit better. Little bit annoyed about the university not letting me in, but my results are really very good.

Good performance from the lads, finally!!! Played really well and although they serious went off the gas in the second half you can see why. So glad they kept a clean sheet too. Man I hope that this is a sign of things to come rather than just a replica of the start that Sven made....

He's a character from lord of the rings. That's a nice looking wall hanger, but it seems to be out of stock at the moment. Narsil is a character? Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude.....i'm disappointed. Lexx pretty much summed it up with those specifications tbh. I'll crack open the tape measure i...

How much are you looking to spend mate? For £65 there's the practical Viking sword, however it's no where near sharp, as it's meant to be used for stage fighting, this detracts from displaying a bit, but it is still a very nice sword. Is also nicely balanced, unlike many wallhangers. But like I said...

Excellent video mate, really good watch.

Also one of the reasons why I like kick-boxing, although a lot of fights end up on the floor on the street, sparring does have a lot of the "aliveness" that they were talking about there, as it's more like a competition rather than drills.

Yup comes up from the rocks mainly in Cornwall. That's why in Cornwall wine cellars etc are so well ventilated, it's the law that they have to have special ventilation put in. The normal ground floor and upstairs are usually ok though as the gas is usually dispersed through the ventilation in the ce...

There's a few of us kicking around I think. All the guys who do/did work for BUK are Norfolk I guess. I'm actually a few miles outside Norwich.

Twinkle and Icingdeath

From D&D's Drizzt Do'Urden I believe. I can't really decide what I think of them. They are quite attractive to look at, but i'm not sure that they're anything all that special. Have only ever found them in the USA so far, and i'm not sure who they're made by. They are about $245 each, and that does ...

Just found that **naughty Cal - -no mentioning other sites** do a version of the sword that looks pretty much the same as yours. Although you can get it in silver too. Has the same fittings and blade detail.

I have mixed feelings about this sword. I like it, because it all works and you can see that it was made for Edward 3 and that it is a king's sword. But at the same time, I think it must be the gold, it is a bit off putting. Maybe I just prefer silver fittings. I do love the detail on the Pommel, I ...
