    Won't need much, either. Ironing out a few more little details before the big reveal, but will post some more photos at that time. ;)

    ASAP. Shown is the first round of pre-production sampling, and it needed a few corrections to get it closer to my original design sketches and stated parameters. We're working on ironing out some of those details right now and getting a second sample done up before moving to production, and production usually takes about 3 months once the order has been officially submitted.

    Details for the second batch of prototypes have been worked out and the manufacturer is moving ahead on making 'em. Once I have them in hand I'll post full pictures and details.

    Second set of samples landed. They fixed the thickness issue but forgot to make the changes to the shape of the guard and the upgrade to hickory scales from Central American pine. However...it's close enough to post pictures of I guess. ;)

    Behold: The Kingfisher. Final version will have hickory scales with iron rivets and the guard will have a slightly different shape at the top of the knuckle bow, but it's pretty close now. Weight is 1lb 12oz, and the point of balance is 3.5" in front of the grip.

    How long will this sword be?

    24" blade. Long enough to have a reach advantage over stuff like common 18" machetes, but short enough to be useful in confined spaces.
