I've been working with Christian for about a year and a half now with enough swords to equip a small army. These awards are simply amazing- you can't do any better in creating a unique recognition piece that is a great conversation starter. Those that own one love it; those that don't aspire to.

Simply The Best!
September 25, 2012
from Washington, DC United States
Let me say, I ordered one of these for a departing colleague, and worked with Christian Darce via email to coordinate the details. I had both sides inscribed with words and logos/images, and Christian was very easy to work with, fast with replies and proofs, and very accommodating.
Then the product arrived. Simply put: amazing. Photos absolutely do not do this justice. The sword itself is a fantastic memento for any departing colleague or to recognize an achievement. But with inscriptions along the blade - quality of that work was fantastic - that made this such a special and touching gift or award. You also receive a write-up explaining the history of the Rudis, something fit to use during an award ceremony.
Trophies, plates, plaques, pen holders, engraved flasks - those are all swell and dandy. However if you want something really unique, something that will burn into the memory of the recipient, I can honestly say you will not find anything more unique than this.
