"We can make it. We have the technology."
-The Million-Dollar Sword
Visually, it is superb. I would be interested in the specifications (materials, weight, balance, etc.) so as to truly "know" this sword although I have minimum knowledge regarding blades of this style and application. You mentioned that Knighthood is more or less an "honorary" title, especially so in modern history. I might suggest that a sword is rather symbolic as well. Many weapons, armor and battle techniques severely limit it's use in actual engagement. History shows that Royalty has provided a pathway to quasi-nobility for commoners through Knighthood but ultimately it seems to be in there own best interests militarily and in terms of public relations. ALL you work I reviewed is excellent.
