Hey Kevin glad you decided to go with the counter curved guard. I think it adds a bit more flare to an already nice piece, be sure to post more pics when you get the chance.

Thanks Stephen, it was your comment that convinced me to do it.

Did you see my other post on O'Conor's shield? I know you do alot of research similiar to mine, have you ever come across anything on it?

Hey Kev, sorry for the lateness of my reply, but I haven't been around here in a while, and thanks for posting those pics, it really is a nice sword and as is the scian A & A did for you aswell.

As for the shield you mentioned (sorry moderators, I dont have time to post this on the other topic) I'm sorry but this is the first I've heard of it, but I think it would have been more like a viking shield than a targe, as it might be a bit early for these, though I could be way off here.

Thanks for the reply. Here is the finished sword but I haven't finished paying it off yet so I don't have it in hand. Should only be 2 more payments.
