Hi Everyone,
I am a new member, and new and aspiring sword collector as well. I hope to get to know all of you better in the upcoming months. I presently only own one sword, it is from Ritter Steel, I suppose it was a mistake to buy it as it is very handle heavy, and blunt as a butter knife and cost me about $300.00, over which I am still rather sore. Anyhow, on to lighter topic, I have a question I want to ask those of you who are more experienced with different manufacturers and also experienced in discerning excellent functional swords from not so great functional swords. Now, before I ask the question, I am well aware that both Angus Trim and Albion are high end manufacturers, however, I wish to know which has that which I seek. I would like an excellent cutting sword that still has decent thrust capabilities. The sword should have excellent edge retention and durability, I am aware AT has this which is why I am leaning toward Angus Trim. Currently, I am in the process of deciding between the Angus Trim AT-1433 War Sword, and the Crecy from Albion respectively. Any advice you guys would have will be helpful, I am very new to this hobby, but I do intend to pursue it. I do not wish to spend over $900.00 at this point, so if you have other suggestions, please keep it within range. Thank you all in advance, and I appreciate your support and time.

Keep in mind that Angus Trim is a more 'pure' cutting sword, while Albion, at least the Next Generation line, has more emphasis on scrupulously historically accurate fittings. I'm pretty sure that most AT swords are a good deal cheaper, last time I checked, anyway.

The emphasis is not just on fittings, but also on blade geometries, proportions, and mass distribution. Historically accurate in all details.

There isn't much point in rehashing all this. Please post anything new to be added to the existing topic on this subject:
