Hello,

because my university studies have become very expensive, I have to sell my precious Marcus Balbach Type Xa Damascus Sword. It was forged out of the patented Balbach-Damast and hardenend to 59HRC by the german Bladesmith Marcus Balbach.The blade ist very flexible, but not whippy at all. . It was hand-ground, polished, hardened and sharpened. The cross and pommel are made of C45 carbon steel, the grip is made of beech and leather.
Stats are as follows:
Length: 97,5cm
Blade length: 81,5cm
Blade width at base: 4,5cm
Distal Taper: from 4,5mm at the cross to 2,2mm at the tip
Weight: 1226 gramm
CoG: 14,5 cm from the cross

Because just the raw-forged blade did cost around 600Euros when it was last sold and over 80 hours of work went into it, I'm asking 1200Euro/1540Dollars + shipping for it. Serious price suggestions and questions are very welcome. If you want to pick it up yourself after buying it, you are also very welcome.

Dropping the Price to 1000Euro/1280Dollar.
Additional Note: Just the fuller is etched, but the whole blade could also be etched.
