I received the typical long white box from UPS at work today... My new Albion Vittfarne!

I took a couple of pictures... see attachments.

For the moment I just did some dry handling with it... all I can say it's that it's quite responsive for a broad viking sword like this. It also feels lighter than the Squire Line Viking and the Next Gen Valkyrja. The grip is the same as on the Next Gen line models, with the typical Albion cord-over-leather impression. The guard and pommel are however less polished and slightly darkened, like on the Maestro line. Looks somewhat antiqued from a distance, and I'm sure many reenactors would love that finish.

Can't wait to put it in action... this sword wants to be used! Did I say it's awesome? Well, it is!

That looks very nice, so nice in fact that I would buy one were it a sharpened sword. And I see that you have a Valkyrja...I am in the market for one. Not an easy piece to find out there, I'm sure that most would not part with it (I wouldn't Happy).
