Welcome fellow sword afficianados!

I am thinking about having a sword custom made. I just want to see other peoples ideas of great swords are.

Please post what you think is the coolest looking sword.

This is one of my favorites; simple yet awesome.

Khopesh are good for lopping off limbs and head

I like a bunch of swords, though many of them are non-realistic.

What's one of your favorites? Can you post pics of some of the non-realistic ones?

I see. so what is one of your favorite types of sword or favorite sword and can you post images?

@Death Certificate said:

Those are really unique. the first one is very abstract.

The last one you posted (above) is awesome and looks like an something the son Thor and Hela would wield. Dauðrmækir: Sword of the Dead

Nice ones. The gauntlet sword is really unique and katars are great.

That is the oddest iteration of Excalibur I have ever seen. Lol

War's sword is definitely my favorite of the 4 you posted.

This is my favorite video game sword; It is one of 3 set pieces of Ares' panoply.

I see. thats really awesome I am more a fan of the European Longswords/bastard swords myself but i think that its cool that you like the more abstruse styles.

I remember seeing the Urami and Kapinga in action on The Deadliest Warrior.

An excellent short sword design. All of the Peter Lyons LOTR movie sword designs were great.

One of my favorite swords. The Atlantean. Jody Samson was the best. He definitely solved the riddle of steel.

Heh. That sword is in the last picture in Shadow Thiefs gallery.

These are two that I really think are awesome. The first one is a combat steel, full tang, Anduril reproduction.

Indeed. It suits you avatar. A Longsword/bastard sword is my blade of choice.

@TheSwordsman: Personally I don't have just a single style or cultural design that I enjoy in particular. I'm not really a collector or martial artist or anything either, but I'll admit that I'm probably slightly less useless with a Japanese style sword in my hand than say anything of European design. But one of these days though I think I'd like to learn a few forms of swordsmanship, more so for fun than any practical reason. I have a few friends that are involved with SCA and it looks kinda interesting.

That's great. Good luck with your training. if you had the choice of only one sword before the zombies broke the door down what would it be?

Those are very cool modern day iterations of several archaic blade styles.

@spiderbat87

The Prince of Persia scimitar is nice. I would like Blade sword more if it had a couple or 3 inches or so on the grip but I like the general design.

The raiden sword is a simple utilitarian design which is cool.

Thanks a lot DM!
