I'm selling another sword:

Compound-hilted hand and a half sword from Armour Class
16th Century Europe


Diamond cross-sectioned blade with two fullers; satin-finished fittings; guards above and below the finger ring arms; three-bar inner guard; spatulated quillons; pommel of pear shape with button; tapered brown leather grip with dividing ring.

See more photos of this sword in my collection gallery page. Please note that I've removed most of the bluing from the hilt, making it a gray Scotchbrite satin finish instead. I like this look better.

Blade is rebated for re-enactment. Very good quality blade meant to withstand the rigors of training or sparring.

The design of my particular piece differs from the current catalog offering from Armour Class. It's my opinion that my example is much more gracefully done than the one shown on their site or others that I've seen come out of the shop. I find the pear-shaped pommel more attractive than the more spherical one they're doing now, as well as the shaping of the grip.

Overall, the sword I'm selling is an excellent piece and was once my favorite in my collection for a long, long time. If I still had any need for a rebated blade, this piece would not be leaving my collection. Simple as that.

Overall length: 45.5"
Weight: 3.7 pounds
Width of guard: 10.25"
Width of grip: 1.5" @ guard > 1"
Blade: 36" long below finger rings; 1.25" wide tapering to .75"
Fullers: 2 @ 26" long
Grip and pommel: 8.5"
Point of Balance (PoB): 3.5" from guard
Center of Percussion (CoP): ~22" from guard

Armour Class is currently asking around $405 US for this sword. Mine comes with a scabbard and hanger and is a more attractive offering than their new model, in my opinion.

Asking price: $450 or best offer, for sword, scabbard, and hanger.
Includes shipping to continental US.

Dang, it sold while I was reading the post. Oh well, I don't have the money anyway, but I've always admired that particular sword. I agree that it is more appealing than AC's current version. Congratulations to whoever was lucky enough to snag this one!

Regards,

Mike

Thanks, I couldn't resist Big Grin

I can't afford it either but it's one of those things I really need right now. Good quality blunt trainers are hard to find.
