Looking for place to have my sword sharpened in DFW.

I was recently gifted a sword by my parents. Might be kind of a silly thing, but I love my Viking ancestry, and they bought a sword from a company in Sweden called grimfrost. It comes partially sharpened, but completely dull on the edge and tip. I’d like to have someone put a proper edge on it, for no other reason than it feels weird to have such a beautiful sword without a proper edge. I have no intent to ever use it for any purpose really, and certainly not for self defense. I live in Texas, and that’s what we have guns for! I’m not sure exactly what to look for, just a knife shop? Or do I need to look for a proper blade Smith? I care that it looks good after the edge is finished, so I don’t want some yahoo to just go to town on it. Here’s a link to the sword they bought me which has more info on the steel they used. https://grimfrost.com/products/grimfrosts-asgautr I live in Frisco, so it would be awesome if there was someone near me, but I’d definitely travel a bit if need be. submitted by /u/Patterson_TM [link] [comments
Does Anyone Know what Century the Albion Count is From?

https://i.redd.it/scpwkgnp2hn31.png I’ll be honest; I’m still a little bit lost on where the term “warsword” fits in between the terms “longsword” & “greatsword.” The Albion website does refer to this as a warsword. Which one came first — the warsword or the longsword? I am aware of the fact that categorization is a modern phenomena regarding these weapons, but are warswords just longswords with type XIIIa & XIIIb blades, or are they greatswords? submitted by /u/Evan-Blake [link] [comments
Hey guys I’m new to the bladed weapons, but I want to learn. Can somebody help me with the basics? As in, some common types of swords or daggers and how to identify them, etc.

Does anyone make ornate/highly decorated swords anymore?
by /u/InSanic13 on September 19, 2019 at 2:54 am
So, for multiple understandable reasons, even high-end sword companies like Albion do not make swords with the kind of flashy decorations that many high-end swords in the Medieval period had, such as precious metals, complex engravings, gems, bluing, or other such features. Still, I was wondering if there are any modern sword makers that do make functional swords with such decorations? Not that I’m looking to buy, but mostly out of curiosity and a desire to see what modern reproductions of such highly-decorated swords would look like. Thus far, the closest thing I’ve found is Tod’s Workshop’s Dover ring hilt sword. submitted by /u/InSanic13 [link] [comments
