Sweet! I've had my eye on the "Munich" and "Talhoffer" over at Albion swords for years, but just can't justify the money until I get my girls through college. There's another in their "Museum" line I'd love, but they still haven't gotten to it from what I know. Trouble is, once I get the money for those toys, I'll probably end up buying period pieces with a higher collector value... Or none at all, because practicality will set in! Damn practicality. If I only I hadn't sold my Apple stocks. so many, many years ago...
I was medically retired from the Army prematurely a few months back, so I took what I've been saving for a true custom job from Tinker (who lives up the road a piece and has been my friend and sparring partner for nigh-on 30 years) and bought a Hanwei-Tinker GSOW from Kult of Athena on sale. The H/T swords have a takedown hex nut in the pommel. Once I've worked with it and decided what I like and don't, Tinker will do the custom work, which fits within my budget since, you know, I'm a pensioner now.
