Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! So Mr. Trim keeps threatening to retire. So I knew I needed to get one of his pieces before they become no more. Happy to add this brute to my collection. Type XVIa.5 with about a 35" blade, 10" grip, about 2.3" wide at the base with a weight of 3lbs 5oz. Also pictured next to a Type XVIIIb.7 (which isn't a small sword) for reference.
