Product Description

Special Note: A Signature Sword is a close representation of a Christian Fletcher original work of art built on a Gus Trim blade. Gus Trim is known throughout the Custom sword world as having some of the greatest skill and knowledge in sword metallurgy and craftsmanship. Christian Fletcher is a Master Cutler. He builds his works on blades from a few sources but uses Gus Trim blades exclusively for the original designs he creates for our "Signature Collection" swords.

While we strive to recreate the swords Christian Fletcher makes as close as possible, some changes from the originals must be made in order to meet our pricing goals. With this in mind please remember that a Christian Fletcher original version of the Castile built on a Gus Trim blade would run the buyer around $1500.00. The Valiant Armoury Signature Castile is less than a third of that price. We believe that this makes for great value. However if you feel that an exact duplicate of the Castile is what you desire, please feel free to contact Christian directly at his website. He will be glad to make you one.
