I help enlighten folks
Where could I find a large bowie knife or very small sword with a nice big handguard. Any ideas?
that's cool. I was thinking more like this kind of guard.
Yes I recommend them also. I been to their facility in Atlanta and I have a couple of their pieces. The epee (far left)in the pic I posted above of the swords came from there as did the Viking sword (forth from right) and the national weapon of soviet georgia (The little one next to the viking sword)
Actually that kult of athena (bottom one) one is a gauche. It's designed to be used in your offhand in conjunction with a rapier to parry your oponents blade. :
How about this? it's pretty hard to find a knife with those kind of handguards.
there is this one but it's only for thrusting
