Hello.

Next summer I have my own wedding Eek! Wink
My fiancee forbided me to wear armour that day under the penalty of runnig away from church Confused but she agreed me to have something sharp and pointy Wink and my soldiers from the company to make a lane.

So I look for a light,ellegant weapon with scabbard+baldric(waist belt could be uncomfortable).I though about smallswords but honestly I don't really like them...
The weapon+scabbard must be under 500$,no plastic included,only pinned tangs...Any advice?

My wife gave me the 1840 NCO Sword from Windlass http://www.atlantacutlery.com/atlantacutlery/detail.aspx?ID=641 for my wedding present, and though the church forbade weapons in the sactuary, I was allowed to have it at the reception.

It is pretty hanging by a chain from the hip, and wonderful to handle, plus, it's got a real tang and cuts like a razor with a little sharpening. I realize it's getting pretty close to a smallsword, which you don't relly like, but I wanted to brag on my wife a little for thinking of such a great present.

Congrats on the wedding! Laughing Out Loud

How about the Lutel two-handed saber (Item Number 11006)?
I did the conversion, and the current USD price is $378.00
Factoring in the shipping it should probably meet your budget. There's also a review of it on this site.

I would recommend the Armour Class Mortuary Hilt Sword. As long as you have a baldric already, getting the sharp version comes out at 460 U.S.D. With a baldric the sharp sits at 540.

The blunt version, with scabbard and baldric works out to 460.

Thaks for the replies.Matthew- stuff made by Armour Class is amazing.I've read official myArmoury.com revievs of two of their pieces.I put that mortuary on my wish list.

However I've found an interesting line of swords:

They say that swords will be available this year for circa 500$.Bristol looks nice..very nice...
