This listing is marked SOLD and is no longer available


Money is a cursed thing... it always lacks. I have to get rid of some swords out of my collection:

1.) Unknown sword

This sword has an old, possibly antique blade mounted in a newer hilt. I do not know how old the blade is or where it is from. As far as I remember, the blade was re-hilted around the late 1990's. It looks used and has been resharpened. I have used it for some light bottle cutting myself.

Total length: 65 cm / 25.5 inch
Grip length (excluding pommel): 13 cm / 5 inch
Weight: 620 g / 21.5 ounces

The crossguard and pommel seem to be made of brass. It is very tightly assembled, with no rattling or blade play whatsoever. A self-made leather sheath is included.

Price? To be honest, I do not really have a clue. I can not remember how much I originally paid and I am not able to estimate the value. In other words, just make me an offer and we will talk about it.

2.) Dha

Again I do not know much about this sword. It is from Burma and looks relatively old but I can not tell any more about it.

Total length: 78 cm / 30.7 inch
Hilt length: 27 cm / 10.5 inch
Weight: 325 g / 11.5 ounces

The hilt is pretty simple and lacks a wrapping. The blade has quite an attractive antique look, is lightly decorated and has a relatively strong distal taper. There is a wooden sheath but it is not too useful and needs a repair.

When it comes to the price, I have the exact same problem as with the first sword, so just make me an offer.

3.) Kris from Traditional Filipino Weapons

You can get all the relevant information in the review here: http://sbgswordforum.proboards.com/index.cgi?...amp;page=1

I have had some sap leaking from the wooden sheath and even though I could mostly get it off and clean the blade, you can still see some traces of it on the blade surface. Nothing serious but of course I have to mention it.

Price: I would like to have 150 USD.

4.) Petr Melč ringpommel knife

Here is the review: http://sbgswordforum.proboards.com/index.cgi?...hread=5274

Since Petr Melč tragically died last year, such knives are not available any longer. It is still in the same condition that it was when I bought it, apart from being resharpened.

Price: Considering the availability and my need for money Worried, I would like to have 100 USD.


5.) Arms & Armor Claymore

I have long been thinking about this... This is a wonderful sword that has been customized for me and I really like it. However, it don't see me using it much. It seems that smaller swords fit better into my collection. For me it is just not practical to carry such a beast to the cutting place (while not attracting too much attention, mind you). And I just cannot keep it as a mere wallhanger, that would be a shame in my eyes.

Total length: 142 cm / 56 inch
Grip length (excluding pommel): 30 cm / 11.8 inch
Weight: 2,4 kg / 5.3 pounds

The crossguard and pommel were blued and Dan Dickinson did a great job modifying the claymore. He wedged some gaps in the crossguard, improved the structural integrity of the assembly and made an Albion style grip wrap in purple.
The sword has only been used once for light cutting and is in mint condition.

Price: 920 USD is what I would like to have. I would also happily accept trades and partial trades + cash (the latter probably even preferred).

Bump...

I would also like to add another item for sale. It's a knife from Southeast Asia, as far as I know at least 60 years old. The metal scabbard(?) is nicely decorated and holds to chopsticks as well as the knife itself.

Cash is getting dangerously low so I have to try and make the deal more interesting...

125 USD for the first sword, 90 USD for the Dha and 130 USD for the kris. Should you decide to take all three, I would knock off a good deal... let's say, 310 for the set.
