Hi All,

Iím trying to thin down my collection as Iíve been going a bit crazy recently and buying more than I shouldÖ Iím also starting to run out of room for everythingÖ
Please therefore take a look at my items below. All are priced to exclude postage and packaging. I would prefer only to send things to the UK, as international postage fees seem to be quite high and might prove to be restrictive. To give you an idea, postage within the UK would be around £10 per item.
Payment by cheque or bank transfer is preferred due to Paypalís exorbitant charges. If youíre happy to pay the extra 3%, however, then thatís up to you.
I realise the below are a bit eclectic, so Iím posting all these on multiple forums. Iíll endeavour to reply to all PMs as quickly as possible, but it might be quicker to e-mail me on: a.mercer@leeds.ac.uk if you are interested or would like more details on anything.
I wonít be dropping the prices on any of these Ė theyíre priced to sell. If they donít go Ė Iíll just keep Ďem. However, Iím open to sensible offers or trades. Like I say, my collection is eclectic so thereís no saying what I might be interested in!

Cold steel 1796 LC sabre
This is the version with the all-steel scabbard. Hasnít been used to cut, and it still has its factory edge which is sharp for the top half of the blade. There are two spots of rust on the sword, both there when I bought it. Iíve tried to include good shots of these in the pics. The spot on the blade is probably from when it was in storage. Itís non-active, and doesnít do much to spoil the aesthetics of the blade. The spot on the knuckle guard was from the string Cold Steel used to attach their label. I guess moisture from the string caused the rust in storage.
Price from Cold Steelís UK site is £300, although you could probably find one cheaper as they tend to bump up their prices on their site. Iím willing to sell for £180 + p&p





Hanwei Sidesword
The blade, grip, and furniture are as new, as Iíve never cut with or sharpened it. The scabbard has a couple of scuffs on it, but thatís it.
Iím also giving away a free main gauche with this sword. I donít know if itís period to have a sidesword with a main gauche, but they look nice as a pair. Itís nothing special: a stainless steel effort with a leatherette-covered scabbard, but it might look nice on your wall or when practising forms.
Retails around £140, Iím willing to let it go for £100 + p&p




Barnett 17th Century Shortsword
As new, although I have sharpened the blade and given it a bit of a polish to take off that new-from-the-factory shiny-shiny look. High carbon steel blade, steel furniture and wire grip. Solidly peened. A nice does-what-it-says-on-the-tin sword, and the best Barnett repro that Iíve handled.
Asking £70 + p&p




Hanwei Scottish Court Sword
I bought this second hand, and it has seen better days. The triangular blade is sound and in good polish. The silver plating has worn off the furniture in a lot of places, but I think this is a common problem found in this sword as the plating is so thin.
Again, asking £100 for this one. Retail as new would be £180, so thatís quite a saving on what is still a nice sword.



1908 Indian Cavalry Sabre
Now, this is not the Cold Steel example, but rather what Cold Steelís offering is based upon: this is a genuine modern issue Indian Cavalry Sabre, based on the 1908 pattern and still used by the Indian Cavalry today. It has a green-painted scabbard and bowl guard to protect against rust, humidity and reduce shine in the desert. The grip is Indian hardwood, cross-hatched and with the distinctive thumb depression to ensure proper wrist alignment in the thrust.
I received the sword with a slight crack in the grip, which had been glued, and the grip is as solid as ever. Because of this, though, I am asking only £100 + p&p for this Ė the Cold Steel example could set you back as much as £300!
