This is a hybrid of the Albion Viceroy and Regent. It was originally the personal sword of John Gage, who used to work for Albion and assembled it during his time there. Albion has flat out said that they will not make another one, so it is one of a kind. It comes with a high end 15th century scabbard with belt suspension made by John Gage. All of the metal parts of the scabbard were hand made by him as well, and the leather is hand stiched shut on the back. The scabbard is one of the nicest I've ever seen, and fits the sword perfectly.



The sword has been used for some cutting, but is otherwise in brand new condition. There is some minor discoloration on the pommel from being gripped, but I can probably buff that out pretty easily.

Its a beefy sword, but in a good way. It feels quite powerful, but is also graceful in how it moves. It hits with authority, but doesn't fight the user when in motion.

Stats:
Overall length: 46.5"
Weight: 3.56 pounds
Width of guard: 8.75"
Blade: 35.25" long; 2.125" wide tapering to .625"
Grip length: 7.5"
Point of Balance (PoB): 4.25" from guard
Center of Percussion (CoP): ~20.75" from guard

I am asking $2400. This will include shipping to the continental US. Anyone outside of the US will have to pay for shipping themselves.

I should point out that I'm not selling this because I'm dissatisfied with the sword (its among my favorites), but because I'm trying to save up for a much more expensive sword, and something has to go. If this sword doesn't sell, I won't lose any sleep. Happy But as such, I'm not really interested in trades. That doesn't mean I won't consider something, though, so if you have a trade you'd like to offer, it doesn't hurt to ask.

I've had a lot of people offer partial trades/cash for this one, but no trades that I was interested in, unfortunately. I'm still mainly looking for cash, but feel free to make me an offer either way. The worst I can say is "no". Happy
