These are some excellent swords of Elven origin. (I take it you are not a devotee of the "elf katana" designs from the movies?) The langschwert designs (1-3) look very effective. I feel that I could pick up #2 and adapt poses from Talhoffer's book with little effort. As someone who is not overly tall, #4 & 6, which look shorter and broader, seem like nice cut-and-thrust swords. Is #8 your take on the appearance of Sting?
