Since I am going back into jousting and need new armour, I decided to let go two swords that I have been working on. A Windlass Sword of Ibelin and a Hanwei River Witham Sword and Scabbard. Both are decent cutters and have been used only (well, by me) for school shows and demonstrations. I would prefer Paypal.

Ibelin - I have done quite a bit of work with this sword. I removed the two animal heads from the cross (which improved the balance significantly), ground out the Latin verses (and found the metal underneath to be a very nice gold colour), epoxied 2 of Jehan's awesome half groats to cover that awful plastic pommel insert, and removed the rawhide from the hilt and mostly smoothed down the center to match the rest of the hilt (my plan was to leather cover it ala an Albion sword). The hilt will take a few more minutes to complete with a dremel or a bit more by hand with sandpaper).

Price: $165.00 + shipping in US.






River Witham- Didn't get started on the sword, but I stripped the crap leather off of the scabbard, applied 3 leather bands, recovered in dark green leather and added an Albion bronze chape (which partially split - which really ticked me off). Got the sword off of Ebay and the last owner apparently thought that the pommel was loose as there is a bead weld done between the pommel and the locket (only on one side and not really noticeable).

Price: $100 + shipping in the US

Will consider offers - these are two good blades, okay, they aren't Albions, but they feel good in the hand and will make some lucky people some good cutters. I would be keeping them except that I desperately need to send Allan some cash for armour (I find it terribly painful to joust without it).

Thanks.
