This listing is marked SOLD and is no longer available


Albion Sovereign for sale: $615. This includes shipping to the continental US. International buyers will pay extra for shipping. That's almost half off of a brand new one.

The catch? Well, first off, this sword is not sharpened. It has been a sword I've used for demos of historical European martial arts. As such, it has seen use against other swords, and has minor edge damage and some scuffing along the flat. I'm sure if you sharpened the sword it would take care of the knicks for the most part.

Also, since I have used it for demos, it gets passed around quite a bit. Little kids put their finger prints all over it. Many years ago I just gave up on trying to keep it clean, and it shows. The sword has surface corrosion all over, and the steel pommel is a fairly even dark brown. All of this is on the surface, and could be polished off with a little bit of elbow grease.

Otherwise, the sword is still rock solid. If you cleaned it up and sharpened it, you'd have a sword that is almost the same as a brand new Albion, and at almost half the price.


I accept check/money order or PayPal. For PayPal, please add the 3% to cover the fees; for personal checks I'll need to wait a week or so to make certain it clears.

You can see the stats here on my collection gallery (as well as pictures of what the sword looks like when it's actually polished):

Here are the pics of what it looks like right now. (Don't judge me! Happy )

This is the worst of the knicks. Everything else is so small you can't really see it in a photograph.

I'm going to lower the price on this one to $615 (post edited above), which includes shipping to the continental US.

This sword is still rock solid. You could even send it back to Albion to have them sharpen and clean it for a pretty small price and essentially have an almost-new Sovereign for a ridiculously low price.
