Description

This is the only official Lady Vivamus endorsed by the Heinlein Prize Trust in a limited edition of 100 swords based on the sword described in the Robert Heinlein classic Glory Road. This has been a dream sword of Howy and Jody's since they were kids. They teamed up with Lars Jason and Steve to come up with this design based on Heinlein's very detailed description: "...and [I] found there the blade that suited me the way Excalibur suited Arthur. I've never seen one quite like it so I don't know what to call it. A saber I suppose as the blade was faintly curved and razor sharp on the edge and sharp rather far on the back. But it had a point as deadly as a rapier and the curve was not enough to keep it from being used for thrust and counter quite as well as chopping away meat-axe style. The guard was a bell curved back around the knuckles into a semi-basket but cut away enough to permit full moulinet from any guard. It balanced in the forte less than two inches from the guard yet the blade was heavy enough to chop bone. It was the sort of sword that feels like an extension of your body. The grip was honest sharkskin molded to my hand. There was a motto chased on to the blade but it was so buried in curlicues that I did not take time to study it out. This girl was mine we fitted! I returned it and buckled belt and scabbard to my bare waist wanting the touch of it and feeling like Captain John Carter and the Gascon and his three friends all in one.""I drew my sword and glanced along it feeling its exquisite balance while noting again the faint ripples left by the feather-soft hammerblows of some master swordsmith. I tossed it and caught it by the forte."Read the motto Star."She traced it out."Dum vivimus vivamus! -- 'While we live let us live!' "-- Glory Road Robert Heinlein Similar to a military or fencing sabre and suitable for both thrust and heavy cutting the slightly curved hollow-ground blade comes to a rapier-like point and is sharp 10"along the back edge. Only a limited number of these swords can be made in the course of a year. The sword ships in a specially designed handmade wooden box that can easily be converted into a display box for your sword. As with all Albion Mark swords these pieces are guaranteed for life against defects in materials and workmanship. This guarantee does not apply to damage caused by your modifications neglect inappropriate use and natural wear and tear. Refurbishing services for your sword when necessary are available for a reasonable fee.

Customer Testimonials

I ordered a Zatoichi Samurai Sword and when it arrived i noticed the box had been damaged. After opening it, I found out that the sword had a 'ding' in it and was slightly bent. I called Swords of Honor and they immediately issued a call tag for UPS to come pick it up and sent me a new one (which arrived perfectly).
