My Arms & Armor

Albion Chevalier

Received January 2009

I can't say enough good things about this sword. It's beautiful and deadly! I initially didn't think I'd be all that excited about a flower-shaped pommel, but we also have to remember that a lot of symbolism that modern Americans consider "girly" was used by men and knights frequently back in the day. Floral motifs were common, and this sword does not say "girly" to me when I handle it. It's more agile than it looks, due to deeply hollow-ground sections on the blad and a deep fuller. But it certainly can strike with authority. The bronze used in the pommel is a very light color, only subtly different than the steel color when viewed in person. And the crossed-strap grip design is somewhat unusual and more fancy than most of Albion's other offerings, making for a very unique sword in the mass market.
