my first sword... aka am I a neckbeard?

So I purchased my first sword. from Customswordshop.com

Its a type xi based on viking build. I asked them to make it and put a price point and what came home was pretty sweet.

blade itself is 33 inches long. handle is about 7 inches, 1 handed.

When I cut it in the air I can hear it sing.

Its very responsive, but if I could change things after having it built it would be to have a little wider blade, slightly shorter, keep the same taper, and have a counter balance to offset the extra wieght that the blade would have.

That will look great melted down and installed on my throne

I was expecting some ghey shit with skulls and fuckery. That is a really nice looking sword.


Not that I admire men's swords often. But your sword looks classy. Not to long not to short. Girth looks spot on.

Anyways I'm no expert. Phone Post 3.0
