    Hello there,

    Having more types of Calimacil rapier swords would for sure be a great idea. A non-fantastic sword based on the Asmoth’s design could be used by different types of players.

    Add some more pictures of the type of sword you’d like us to make. What colors for the handle? What length? How about a steel blade?

    Well, it could be nice, but I think the Spanish Ropera is a better option, 1)because they almost have the form except for all that chaotic skulls and veins and else on the guard, and 2)its use was more widespread over europe so it would be better for reenacting groups.

    A matching second hand sword would be lovely too.

    That would be absolutely perfect examples of what I meant.

    Really they almost designed it, but too small.

    A friend of mine bought recently one of these: http://www.calimacil.eu/weapons/others/nails-staff.html. It look really better in reality than in photos.

    If they added other 6 to 10 inches of the nailed part, and another 6 to 10 inches in the lenght of the handle, they would already have a kanabo.

    I consider the best would be 10 inches on both sides and will have an impressive weapon.

    We’ve started working on a complete halberd. Since we have never created such long items, we still need to improve our methods before we can offer a complete halberd. We are very confident that we will be able to offer such a product soon.

    Me and my friends have been using the Murten for a couple of years already for both long and short halberds (250 cm and 180 cm), and, even as we are quite satisfied with them (I have two of them myself, for example), they tend to break in the pole junction with the head or the core, no matter how much we reinforce it. Curiosly, it breaks even faster in the shorter version (180 cm) than in the other one.

    I understand that maybe there won't be much demand for a longer version, but myself, and I think most of my friends are longing to be able to have a good calimacil complete halberd in a western way (the naginatas are great but don't fit well with our Tercio look)
