Due to some expenses that have come up I have to put my Albion Stamford up for sale. I have had it a couple months (I bought it "new" from Viking Shield) and overall it is in very good condition. Right now it is very sharp and the only things that have differed while I have owned it are that the blade has picked up a couple small scuffs and one more noticeable scratch about 8" back from the tip of the blade. All were from honest cutting or sharpening - this sword hasn't been used for anything other than swinging around a little and to chop up some milk jugs. The scratches from sharpening would probably polish out in a few minutes but the one from cutting would take just a little more work. Price is $400 plus shipping. Sorry, but I need the cash so I'm not really interested in trades on this one.
Blade length: 30.25"
Blade width (at base): 2"
Weight: 2 lbs 5 oz
It does have a pretty good amount of blade presence.
It isn't slow or sloppy in handling though and eventhough it is made as a cutter, it still thrusts pretty well IMO.
Here are some pics.
