A little treat for fellow 'bladies' here in the UK
Hello, just testing the water to see if there's any interest as summers here I thought I may divert some time & money on another interest [my Harley].
Swords for your consideration are all only a few months freshly purchased, never cut with, just cherished & displayed in the study.
Firstly:
Dark Sword Armoury Norman [1307S] ~ With a DSA Forge Sharpened Blade along with the Sword Belt Upgrade 270
Dark Sword Armoury: Norman Dagger [1803] again, With the DSA Forge Sharpened Blade 110
Next, 2 from the Valiant Armoury Signature Series.
A Hedemark Viking Sword 270
Last but not least, one of the newest lines from V-A, a gorgeous "Malatesta" 315
PayPal's good [+3%] + shipping.. Please feel free to PM me questions, offers are respectfully invited & seriously considered, always glad to help or assist, but definitely no trades thank you.

If your close to mid Cornwall, your most welcome to even have a look before buying Idea [and of course, save on shipping Wink ]

All the very best Bill

The VA Signature Series Hedemark now has a new good home & custodian Happy

Although the Hedemark is firmly sold, the VA Signature 'Malatesta' along with both the D-S Norman sword & Dagger (either together or separately] are still available.

As a guide, postage by Parcel post to the UK mainland [including insurance] is approx 9.00.
Thank you again for reading & interest Happy

New week, lets have a new price Big Grin

Dark Sword Armoury Norman [1307S] ~ With a DSA Forge Sharpened Blade along with the Sword Belt Upgrade down to 265
Dark Sword Armoury: Norman Dagger [1803] again, With the DSA Forge Sharpened Blade likewise down to 105
The gorgeous Valiant Armoury Signature Series "Malatesta" cut down to 310.
I hope someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but it's my understanding that when this first batch of the Malatesta have sold, there could be a considerable hiatus before they may be available again Wink

thank you again for taking the time to browse and interest
kind regards
Bill

These Dark Sword Armoury blades are the toughest, hardiest there is anywhere near their price. These swords [including the VA Malatesta] are being offered at LESS than the basic $ exchange, if that's not a good enough saving, I have paid all the shipping, + the VAT / excise duty which alone is another 22% + on top of that again! This really is a bargain someone in the UK is going to be pleased they didn't miss. Wink

I had a request for a picture of the 'Normans', afraid I'm worse than rubbish at taking pictures, certainly don't do this sword & dagger justice. They're available as a pair at a 'deal' price, or either blade individually.
As mentioned, basically, I've taken care of [absorbed] all the import & VAT costs, which if anyone has imported in to the UK will know, is not an insignificant amount of money These are 'peened' giving not only a tradition look, but added strength.
Anything else I can help or assist with, even work through a price, please feel free to pm me. Wink






kindest regards
Bill

I'm puzzled and somewhat perplexed my prices on these DSA Norman's are not attracting keener interest Confused From personal experience, asking prices are much lower than it's possible to import these one's self. I'm also surprised there has been few 'offers'.
DSA swords are renown for their strength & cutting if that's your passion. In their class they are untouchable. Cool

OK. for the Norman sword on it's own I'll drop to 250 + postage [approx 10] + PayPal % fees
For the Norman Dagger, 100 inclusive!
For the Norman sword and dagger as a package, 350 and I'll absorb 50% of postage & PayPal % fees. That's over 30 drop on the sword alone.

Someone please buy these before I make the offers so complex I'll end up confusing myself Big Grin
kindest regards
Bill

A friendly bump :-) & priced to sell at 350 for the DSA Sword & Dagger inclusive of all taxes, duty, PayPal fees & the postage to your mainland UK address! That really is a massive loss out of my pocket, equally, it's a price that will not be repeated probably by anyone again Confused

The DSA Norman Dagger has now been SOLD & on it's way to a good home Happy

The DSA Norman Sword is at present still available:
240 fully inclusive of shipping, packing & PayPal fees to UK mainland address.
This Sword has the sharpened blade & Scabbard & Interlaced Sword Belt upgrade.


I've added some better pictures below, it's been mounted on the wall since I imported it into the UK at the beginning of 2010.
On close inspection, there are some very minor longitudinal marks, these are either due to the original sharpening process of from the scaboard. Nothing really untoward [almost inevitable] I'm just nit-picking Worried otherwise is pristine..

Below are a few details taken from Eyal's site:

Our Swords
Darksword Armory's combat ready swords are individually hand forged using the same techniques as those used during the 14th Century. Each sword is individually reproduced from the original and forged from the finest material.
Due to our commitment in producing historically accurate medieval swords, our company has gained a reputation for forging some of the most resistant combat ready medieval swords on the market. Our reputation has made us one of the key players in the Medieval reenactment and stage community, selling not only to private collectors, but to various theatrical groups and movie studios.

All our swords are hand forged, combat ready and properly tempered to a Rockwell of 53, and can either be ordered blunt, for stage and reenactment combat , or Sharpened for cutting purposes. Our collection of battle ready Medieval Swords are based on originals, found in various Museums as well as private collections. Our commitment to forging historically accurate battle ready medieval swords is at the core of our success.

Our medieval swords are Hand Forged with 1060 High Carbon steel. The blades are Tempered to a Rockwell of 53. All our blades are oil hardened. The metallurgical content of our blades is:
C: 0.65% - 0.75%
Mn: 0.30%
Cr: 0.60% - 1.20%
Ni: 1.25% - 2.00%
Mo: 0.35%
Si: 0.50%

1307 - The Norman With Sharpened Blade & Scabbard & Interlaced Sword Belt upgrade.
Classified as type XI by Oakeshott's typology, is fitted with the traditional wheel pommel and straight guard.
The diamond shape blade is extremely well balanced, making this one of the lightest and most maneuverable Medieval swords for cut and thrust swordplay.

Sword Specifications
Total length: 35"
Blade length: 28"
Blade width at base: 2"
Weight: 3lbs. 4 oz.
