Awesome! They actually look kinda big, or at least kinda heave for short swords, so I'd probably prefer to have a handguard on them, at least one for the front so my hand doesn't slide over the base of the blade and get cut. XD
These are an order I placed with John 7 or 8 years ago. I sold them to another collector to fund a motorcycle purchase, and have regretted it ever since. I've got an order for a similar set from John in the works.
As nice as they look in the photo, they're even nicer in person. The fine detail work that John did with the handle and fittings was just amazing, and not pictured is the scabbard and baldric set up that John designed for them.
Love them! I've been searching for good twin blades like the ones I imagine for one of my characters since yesterday morning and I love these! His are longer but that's not the point. They're great. And yeah, reminds me a little of Legolas' knives in LOTR.
I would like 1 of those, same shape longer handle and lighter in color with a sturdy guard, more like a short version of a falchion. I would keep my bow in the left hand and be able to draw from the back or left side. The single edge would work great for the martial arts I've done ----how much?
