The Art of Balefire Blades
Over lockdown, we took delivery of a beautiful new coffee-table-style sword book from Balefire Blades. If you are familiar with their online presence, you will know that their custom swords come with beautiful stories designed to evoke the history and background of their design. It might seem like a non-functional addition to your sword order, but everybody who loves swords knows there’s more to a sword than it simply being a functional weapon and the stories are fantastic (even if, annoyingly, some of them stop on a bit of a cliff hanger – we want to know what happens next!).
Even more exciting than that, the two Reiter swords and the Andalus sword featured in the book are all owned and loved by members of Glasgow Historical Fencing Society.
