This is what I like.
A nice looking sword that an actual human could pick up and use.
There many fantasy blades on Deviant-Art that seem more dangerous to the user than the target.

It's very beautiful. Does the blade have a blue shade to it or is it just the lighting?

:iconlongshiparmoury:
LongshipArmoury Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Probably just the lighting and the oil on the blade.

Your work is an inspiration to me as an artist. Someday I hope to be able to purchase one of your fine creations. Are any of these "functional"?

:iconlongshiparmoury:
LongshipArmoury Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
All of them are functional. Don't really believe that something is a "sword" unless it functions as one ;)

More like the parent. The Morrigan's a combo of the Celtic Wolf and the Celtic Dragon.

Do you have an estimated price for blades of this similar design? I might be willing to purchase one.

:iconlongshiparmoury:
LongshipArmoury Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Not really doing any full customs at this time. I do, however, have something in the Longship semi-custom/production line with similar pommel/guard and customizable blade/grip. It's the Morrigan and goes for $950 without the bronze spacer ring in the middle of the grip.

You might be commenting on the wrong piece, mate. I only do swords and knives (do take commissions by email at odinblades@aol.com). No crossbows though.

These are all commissions for private customers, although I hope to expand into semi-production eventually.

Hey, thanks for getting back to me so quickly, I was actually going through you website today and I was amazed at the diversity, detail, and beauty of the swords. I absolutely fell in love with the Celtic Wolf sword that you have up on the site. Gorgeous piece. You have amazing talent and skills, sir.

How long do they usually take to make? I know they say that if you have to ask, you can't afford it, but I'm very curious so... How much would it be for something like the Celtic Wolf? And, Do you do custom designs; if someone had a picture or an idea of what type of blade, metal, finish, hilt, etc.?

thanks again,

erick
