    Edit...
    Just figured out no one could see it because that POS Angelfire will not let you link to pictures, only html files... Anyway, I have created an html page with the pic on it. The link has been updated in the last post and I will post it here again as well. Let me know what you guys think...

    that one would work for me also!
    all though some people think excessive bumps on handles
    get in the way of quick hand shifts or repositioning.

    The sub-hilt is there to allow hand placement for people who want to use a single hand grip as opposed to the hand and a half. Of course, most people here probably know that. I am sure some people would prefer otherwise. I have a Hossom sword that has a similar sub hilt on its hand and a half handle and I love it. If gripped correctly you can't even really tell it's there and it provides a "beak pommel" effect when using a single handed grip.

    Peace-
