would like to give you as much information on our sword as possible.
I've spent years researching all of this, speaking to family
members I never knew I had until I traced them down, to piece
together a sort of history of our sword."
particular sword design has been a favorite of mine for over twenty
years. You must share my surprise in discovering that this familiar
design has an historic antecedent.
This sword has been exhaustively researched by James Lindsey, drawing on authenticated sources such as a 17th Century detailed full scale painting of the sword, (from which a full sized tracing is still in his possession) and a 1937 color miniature based on the original painting. Designed by Howy of Albion, working closely with Mr. Lindsey, and crafted with only the highest quality materials and workmanship by the talented artists and craftspeople at Albion, we are happy to bring you such an exact replica of this historic original.
The sword will be available in a
Special Edition and a Limited Edition of 100 (please note: the Limited
Edition is no longer available). Each edition is faithful to the
original in dimensions and performance.
