Next is the "traditional" style of sword
From left to right
Hanwei claymore
Cold steel two handed greatsword
Hanwei bastard sword
Hanwei river waithem sword

First spot of the euro wall goes on a floating shelf the hadafangh or however it's spelt lol
I'm thinking greatsword and claymore on either side with a shield under the shelf?

ok geordie
heres one of the two pieces i got this morning similar details to the last one but in my opinion
this has to be the best yet with an absolutly flawless damascus blade the handle is exotic hardwoods
with black buffallo horn spacers
Image

and this is a scottish dirk nothing special but it
dose have a real nice handle either mahogany
or indian rosewood 23.50 inches with the sheath
21.50 long on its own
