These sword shots were taken with a few different lighting variations. Some are better than others. A couple of them have a bit of the backdrop cloth obscuring part of a sword edge. Sorry about that. Shouldn't be any problem for you talented folks, now should it.
For those interested in such things...
This particular sword is a fantasy design; that is, it isn't modeled after a historical example. It was made by one of my regular customers (hi, Jack, if you ever see this) back when I worked at a comic shop. The blade is made from a leaf spring from a junked pick-up truck. As a matter of practicality, the sword needs it's grip re-wrapped, and it needs a fuller ground into the blade, for it is far too heavy as it is. And the surface could certainly stand to be finished better. All of these are things I'll get around to... eventually.
