Some time ago I bought a fake antique Wilkinson Sword. I know and correspond via a web form with with with Robert Wilkinson-Latham please see the post here[link]
any how.. I could not allow a friend of mine to have a slight to either his company or name to stand, but I was also out the money that I bought the sword with.
What to do with a fake antique? Practice restoration.
after that, I used the blade to make a sword for a friend of mine who does middle eastern dance/
This is the end result
