I had this blade custom made by Arms & Armor of Minnesota last year for a DIY project.
Unfortunately I could never get to it.

Rather than keeping the blade indefinitely, I would like to sell her.

The specs are as follows :

Total length - 58 1/8"
Blade length - 43 7/8"
Width - 2 1/8"
Thickness - 0.220"
Weight - 3 lb 6 oz
Steel - 6150 ( A&A standard ? )

The blade is as new, in perfect condition.

Asking US $ 400.00 + shipping + 3% paypal fee. Will ship to CONUS only.

Thanks for looking,

Gabriel

If there is any interest for this blade, please feel free to make an offer.

If you rather have this made into a sword, I may be able to find the time to complete it for you

Either way please contact.

Thanks,

Gabriel

Gabriel I realize its unhilted and a type XX, but could you double check the weight. also, could you give us just a brief readers digest on how you and A&A came up with the blade geometry...... it seems..... based on my quick back-of-the-envelope analysis, to be , well, kind of out there in terra incognita as far as blades go based on weight, length, tang length/blade length, width at hilt etc. but maybe there was an extant example it was based on? thanks! tr

The blade weight is 3 lb 5.8 oz with an accuracy of + or - 0.1 %. Other parameters are unchanged.

The design and execution was with my input and A&A's expertise with the geometry based on XX.1 here:

http://www.myArmoury.com/feature_spotxx.html

This is not the first XX type that A&A is making and surely they are very well experienced.

As for the subject of "terra incognita" and "extant exemple" , while everybody is entitled to an opinion, I don't believe this is the right place I should be engaged in such discussions. Please use PM.

I wasn't being critical as you already know from our PM's I was interested. Its a very big sword yet still might be under 1900g when all is said and done and hilted. It must have a steep distal taper in addition to the fullers. Its just a big bearing sword which is why I asked. I thought it might be a reproduction of an actual sword. good luck tr

Well, I guess it is time to make the inevitable happen: making the sword !

What was meant to happen originally, will happen now.

Thanks for giving me this opportunity.
