This spring I had the CRANACH one and a half-hander made by the Czech swordsmith Pavel Moc. It is almost a rapier and I meanwhile found that it does not really fit into my collection of medieval swords (mostly Albions) and therefore I want to sell it to free the space for another Albion...
For sale is the Cranach sword with a matching leather scabbard and belt. Sword grip and scabbard are in black leather.
Overall length 121 cm.
Blade length: 91 cm.
Fuller length: 52 cm.
Blade width (at crossbar): 3.9 cm
Blade: HRC 49-50 steel
Weight: 1.517 kg
I ordered the sword sharp, but it is not as sharp as the Albions, more like a practice sword, but too dangerous for that. The blade is surprisingly flexible, and the sword has a weight distribution much towards the pommel. In fact it is moved best as a one-hander, despite its long grip.
It has a wonderful piece of metalwork at the crossbar to protect the knuckles and thumb (see pictures).
If you want to know more about its creator, Pavel Moc, check out his website, which now comes even in English and not only in Czech ...
I would ask for $300 for the sword and $ 80 for the scabbard with belt.
As I am located in Europe (Frankfurt) and want to encourage potential buyers in the significant US market, I ask only for a transport contribution of $10.
So, for $390 the complete package is on your doorstep.
Payment please by PayPal.
