I was going over sword options via email with one of my new students today and stumbled on these (its been a while since I had been to this site so I was surprised)
since there is always big discussion about this, here is something I am excited that is coming on the market
from this Czech sword maker. http://www.swords.cz/index.html
Looks like they will be over 50 inches (and probably closer to 53/54) and weigh in at 3 or so lbs. also they have an interesting tip design.
the best thing about this is I have heard around the web that Pavel Moc is pretty cool about hilting and pommel options so you could probably get what ever hilt you wanted (unlike some high end american companies)
here are some more pictures
I cant wait to start hearing reviews about these
