there are currently some criminals in the Linden Research's game SecondLife trying to sell these swords, Jaysus filed a DMCA notice against Linden Lab already but would like to inform you that not a single sword of this mod being sold in SecondLife is legitimate and by buying them the buyer participates in a crime, please refrain from buying them, you may use my swords free of charge for your personal use and even implement them on your second life character, selling them however violates so many of my rights that i get seriously pissed.

for solving problems with this mod please consult the FAQ (frequently asked questions):

some user reviews:

"Progressively the most underated Mod on the Nexus!!"

"only reason keep a follower is so can equip them with these allowing me to see them better"

"Jaysus just give me swordgasm....ohh noess ...."

"The dwemer and orcs are said to be great blacksmiths but your work makes them look like amateurs thank you"

"Great work JaySuS! I've been enjoying your creations since Oblivion and now Skyrim!"

"Jaysus these are great swords!

"Keep up the good work, your weapons are totally amazing!

"Love the update! Fantastic work! Thanks a million, man! :) This is now my main source of weapons in the game and damn the only downside is that it's hard to choose from all the great looking swords! :)

"This Mod is Awesome!"

"At first I was like... "meh - another lazy mod for crappy weapons" :D
But then I was like "MOTHER OF GOD, I NEED THIS MOD" O_o "

"These weapons are superb. The quality is among the best professional work. They are very well-balanced stat-wise.
For me, this weapon mod couldn't be better. I'm a historical European sword geek, and these swords are designed in the styles to match a wide range of historical designs. They look like real weapons, yet have their own distinct style. JaySuS truly did his homework on these; true passion went into making this."

all weapons in this mod were created using a professional pipeline from very high detail models with around 7million polygons each,
every little notch and granny you see is an actual 3 dimensional feature on the original model and was put there by hand with lots of care and love,
no textures were used, every single dot was painted by hand to simulate the material in question to the best of my current abilities
