I have decided to take my Albion FirstGen Spatha out of the collection, in favor for another sword. It is a fine piece (naturally, it wouldn't be Albion otherwise Happy ) but one Roman sword is actually enough for me so I stick to the gladius. It's simply a matter of restructuring the collection.

The spatha has been used for light and medium cutting (water bottles and one or two tatami mats) and the edge is still as sharp as on day 1. I never saw any need for resharpening. The only cosmetical imperfections that I can spot right now are a few minor surface scratches on the blade and slight traces of use on the wooden hilt components.

There is also a selfmade leather sheath for the sword, plain and simple but very practical for carrying it on the belt and preventing edge contact while transporting. If anyone is interested in a photo of the sheath, no problem, just send me a message.

I'm interested in trading the spatha for another Albion sword or anything in equal quality. Preferably another one hander. In case you're offering a more valuable sword I would be willing to pay the difference, too. But I'm not interested in lower end swords.
So basically, just throw in an offer, we'll talk about it then. And if there's anything you would like to know, of course don't hesitate to ask. Wink

I haven't received any message so far... maybe there was some technical problem?

Well, Jesse, I would definitely prefer a trade. If it doesn't work out that way I can think about selling the spatha.

Yes there seems to be a technical problem, however I had the same intention as Jesse had... Maybe I have a AT longsword for trade, if you are interested...
Cheers Stephan

Generally I'm not too interested in Atrim swords but you can give it a try nevertheless and send me some pictures of it. I'll send you a pm with my mail address.

Almost everything except lower end swords like Hanwei, Windlass or Cold Steel for instance. Preferably Albion but you can just give it a try and offer anything. Worst I can do is say no. Wink
In fact I do not exclude Atrim either, it's just that most of his models don't match my taste.
