It's really cool, but not one bit of it appears to be pointy. I know that's most likely stylistic, but all of the vertices are rounded and my brain can't handle it.

Well, it was also a blunt stage weapon for a wedding. Don't want to accidentally send your wife or guests to the hospital.

Falcatas are one of my favorite sword types. Nice/

The only blade of this style that I have ever seen was a Kukri knife. XD This is pretty cool, although it looks like it would be kinda heavy for a one-handed sword.

It's fairly light thanks to lots of distal taper.

These are all real blades. This Sangria was made blunted for use is someone's marriage ceremony, but the vast majority of the ones we make are sharpened.

And on the last page I see a Falcata/Kopis style blade and I think my heart has stopped. I'll be back when I'm done in the ER.

Working on another Kopis-type custom right now, actually. Also looking into maybe releasing a tactical Kopis model with G10 scales and acid etched blade to resist rust :)

Oh, I might just faint from internal bleeding. I cannot wait to see it. Baby (my pride and joy) is a Kopis-type short spear and it's functionality has been unlimited here in the Midwest. I might have to commission you for one just to keep my best friend from trying to run out the door with mine. Haha. Have you ever tried something with an enlarged (32-36 inches) handle? I'm sure it isn't too difficult, but it took me a while to get the balance right.

Did a naginata years ago, although I haven't done anything with a significant shaft lately. Mostly it's because it's a pain in a butt to mount the blade on and tough to ship, since I haven't done shows in like a decade now.

looks very similar to an Hellenic kopis
which is a kind of blade I am actively looking to acquire.

It was made for the customer to be part of his wedding, so I'd say he sure is ;)
