This is an Angus Trim Type XII blade mounted to an Albion hilt from several years ago. The hilt fittings are all hand forged. It comes with a wonderful scabbard with a 12c belt suspension made by Eric McHugh.



The scabbard has some scrapes on it because its been worn, and the blade has seen a lot of cutting, so has minor discoloration on it. Nothing serious. Otherwise its in very good condition, and is one tough little beastie.

Overall length: 38.5"
Weight: 2.5 pounds
Width of guard: 8"
Blade: 31" long; 1.75", tapering to .75"
Grip length: 5"
Point of Balance (PoB): 5.25" from guard
Center of Percussion (CoP): ~17.75" from guard

I've owned this sword for about a decade now, and have always loved it, even though it falls a little early for my primary focus of time period. There've been several times that I thought to sell it because its earlier than my interests run, but then I handle it and change my mind. Well, I have newer toys I want to finance, so I'm finally looking to let this one go. More pictures and details can be found in my collection gallery:

Edit: Price drop. Asking $575. This includes shipping to the continental US. Those outside of the US would have to pay for shipping themselves.

This is an excellent price, considering the sword is one of a kind and comes with such a nice scabbard. I was tempted to ask for more, but because the scabbard has some scuffs, I'll let it go cheaper than the price of a typical Albion single handed sword that doesn't come with a scabbard.

Price drop. Now asking $725 for both sword and scabbard. I've edited the original post to reflect this.

Bumping this beauty up, and lowering the price to $700. That's quite a deal for both sword and scabbard.

Bumping this back up with a new price drop. $650, shipped within the continental US.

This is seriously a very nice sword. It not only feels great, but its incredibly tough.

I've had a lot of trade offers, but ultimately I'd prefer money for some other sword projects I want to fund. Still, it doesn't hurt to make me an offer (trade or cash).

Since everyone seems out of cash, I'm lowering the price. $625, shipped within the continental US.

Trying to pay for new sword projects. How about $600, shipped to the continental US? That's quite a deal for a sword this nice, *plus* a scabbard this nice.

I'm putting this back on the market. Asking $575. Trust me when I say the scabbard alone is worth far more than this.

I'm marking this sword as "REMOVED" now. I've had a number of bites, but most people want to buy this for less than I'm willing to sell it for, and truth be told, I've come to the conclusion that I don't really want to sell it. It's a sweet sword.

Thanks for the offers, everyone.
