New, still has the original shipping oil, this replica of the Hod Hill Sword. This sword was found in Hod Hill in Dorset in the remains of a Roman camp. This is a reenactment sword and does not have a sharpened blade. EN45 is the UK reenactment standard in steel so I guess it would be used in this sword. It is a good working steel, not a pot metal type blade, With work, it should take the same edge a MRL sword would. So basically it is a Roman style Spatha with English styled furniture.
There is a great review on My Armory. http://www.myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t...t=hod+hill
You can get mine without VAT and the overly inflated shipping.
This would be just right for an impersonation of a Roman Auxicillary in the British Isles.
If there was really was an Excaliber, this is what it would have looked like.
Comes with a nicely made leather over wood core scabbard. Overall a nice sword of good quality,
