This is a cutter for sure, with the P.O.B. so far out. I had no trouble going through through the thick plastic of a 2 liter diet coke bottle, and my technique is absolutely atrocious. Wasn't the cleanest cut, but thats probably more due to my edge alignment then any issue with the sword. I'm quite happy with it.
That's badass! I wanna cut something
You look like Derek Smalls
1d8 when wielded one-handed, 2d4 when used with both hands.
... at least in 2nd edition, which was what I played, being the dinosaur that I am.
Krig, I made the jump. I picked up an Albion Mercenary second hand from myarmoury.com. This thing is amazing. I call it Sir Pokesalot. Love me a fat Type XVa blade.
Also, just took my hobby to the next level. Doing some customization, just made a new leather wrap for one of my cheaper swords (Windlass Oakeshott Type XIV).
You crazy bastard!
How awesome does it feel in hand?
Handles like a dream. The weight is distributed close enough to the hand that it can be used with one hand, but it comes alive with two.
I've never handled a well made sword
Thread got kinda weirdly homoerotic...
Want to handle my sword?
Good job, Stormo. Pregnancy was kind to Kristen Bell.
Yeah, totally was. She still looks breathtaking.
2nd Edition D&D'er reporting in.
Just got a replica of the Anglo-Saxon Coppergate helmet and its comedically too large for my head.
Granted, its probably designed to be worn over a padded cap and chainmail, which would make it look less ridiculous, but its pretty funny as is.
