The sword itself costs a wallet worrying $999 and the scabbard and belt doesn't come cheap either, but my god what a beauty.

Well when I say custom made I dont mean one of a kind, the smith makes a very limited run of them, sometimes only around 20 :|

i love this sword and would say that anyone buying from CF is getting virtually a custom sword in the sense of the overall quality and feel etc..

kind regards

yes i thought so, the quality of the scabbard work is a dead giveaway (i.e. jaw droppingly lovely :) )

That is totaly beautiful darksun! Guess who's getting a summer job to pay for more quality blades? oh how I wish student was a paid profeshion. Really, im doing the town of huddersfield a service, by havign student nights we keep the local underaged kids away, and by being sick on the streets, we provide jobs for the comunity, as some one needs to clean it up, we also basicly keep the taxi firms in bussiness, and my local kebab house mwould suffer with out me.

As I said elsewhere...

it's nice... but not my cup o' tea.

Knowing now it's CF, (not that the scabbard didn't give it away...;)), there's far more of his creations that would attract my fundage than that sword :)
