About a year ago, I asked John to make me a hollow ground longsword. I gave no other direction other than that. What he created is truly awesome and I've been happy to own it, however I must make room for the two new pieces I have coming from John.

First off, this sword is a monster! It's really big with a wide blade, which is in contrast to the rather slender blade profiles I normally think of when contemplating longswords. The grip is Bubinga burl wood and the furniture is antiqued bronze with a wheel pommel and bow tie hilt.

Despite the large dimensions, the sword is very handy and feels extremely nimble for such a significant piece of steel. At 3 lbs, 9 and 3/4 oz, it's not the lightest sword in my collection of John's creations (of which I have four and one more on order), but it handles so well that it feels like it's at least a full pound lighter than it really is! Truly, the John's abilities to balance out big blades is brilliant!

The aesthetics turned out beautifully. Even though it's a large sword, it also manages to be quite graceful. The strong center ridge is really cool and the hollow grinding is really well done! I really am more and more impressed with this blade every time I get it down from the case and handle it. I also am a huge fan of John's wood work and have all of my swords done by him made with burl wood grips.

The last thing that really needs to be mentioned is the scabbard and baldric. John's scabbards are really well done! They fit his swords really well and act as a beautiful accompaniment to his swords.


Specifications:

Type: Hollow ground longsword
Blade material: Monosteel
Blade length: 35"
Blade width at hilt: 2.5"
Blade width 2" from tip: 1"
Grip material: Bubinga burl wood
Grip length: 7 1/2"
Furniture: Antiqued bronze
Total length: 45 1/2"
Weight: 3 lbs, 9 and 3/4 oz

I am asking $3,800 for this sword and scabbard/baldric package shipped to your door in the CONUS. I'll also ship internationally at actual cost.

For a limited time I'm going to reduce the price to $3,200 and I'll cover shipping. This is a great chance to own a John Lundemo custom at a good price and without a 1-year wait.

My mistake...For sale at $2,450 with fre shipping in the CONUS. This is a really great deal on a custom Lundemo piece that has never been used. If you've ever wanted one of John's works, now's the time!

Price drop to $2,395 and free shipping in the CONUS. This represents a significant discount from original price. This blade has rarely even been handled, much less cut anything. It's looking for a good and loving home!

I really want to sell this. It kills me to take such a loss but I'll take $2,195 and I'll ship it to you in the CONUS. Someone please pick this up.
