Hello,

I really hate to see this one go. It's a just-out-of-the-box Valiant Armouries Hedemark, in brown. This is a lovely sword - quick, authoritative, well-balanced and sharp. I only received it today. If I hadn't decided to play a few centuries older than this I would never think of giving it up.

Of course I've done no cutting with it, but I'm convinced it would cut really, really well. One the links below is a review from a fellow who did some cutting with his. Of all the forms with which I've trained I've done sword-and-shield the most, and this sword is one of very few that handles like such a sword should. My personal temper test - a sidewise slap on the pommel - shows it to have a fine spring temper as the blade wobbles in a nice sinusoidal curve.

The scabbard is the best I've ever handled that I didn't make myself. The sword draws one-handed, which is a requirement of mine, and there is a leather baldric included.

I'm about to go out and take some pictures, but many people here already know the Hedemark. There are make-and-model pictures here:

The best price I can find on the 'net for this sword is $383.95 and that one is back-ordered. But if you'll pay shipping I'll put it back in the box and send it to you for $330, plus shipping.

If you were wanting one of these this is a good opportunity to save some money. If you weren't you haven't handled one. I should say that I would consider a trade for a Celtic sword of the La Tene period, but it would have to be good.

Thanks for reading.

One nice feature of this sword is that is one of the few Nordic swords that I've seen that actually has enough room for a normal-sized hand:
