Shortening an existing sword
I have a hand-and-a-half back sword made by Darksword Armory, the blade on which is 29". I'd like to shorten the blade to 26" and shorten the handle to a single-hand grip length. The pommel is peened. Can you provide any information on how best to do this, or if it's possible, or if there are reasons that this is a really bad idea?
