Hiya,

I have some sharp and pointees for sale - prices are pretty much firm, but include UK p&p, so I think they're reasonable! Please pm or, ideally, e-mail me on: a.mercer@leeds.ac.uk as I'm more likely to check my e-mails regularly. If you want more pics, feel free to ask.

Paul Chen Ox-tail Dao - 90
Pretty much as new, only been displayed. brass has a bit of a mellow patina on it, but this can easily be polished out

Antique yataghan - 200
I bought this fairly recently. Don;t often come across them for sale, so I snapped it up only for my tastes to change. Blade is sharp in places, and it comes with the remains of its scabbard. Looks like it's seen use!

John Barnett rapier - 40
Bought this thinking it was something else! Looks nice as a wall-hanger, but Barnett things aren't really the highest quality. Blade is butter-knife sharp, and grip and guard are a little worn.

John Barnet sidesword - 40
Now, saying what I've just said about Barnett swords, I actually quite like this one! it's light and handy - blade has been polished down to a less stainless-steel-like shine. butter-knife sharp again.

Pair of stainless steel sai - 20
E-bay buy back in the day - just used for display. Would like to sell along with the kama below. Couple of scratches, but look nice on the wall!

Pair of stainless steel kama - 20
As the sai above - couple of scratches. Blackened stainless blades, unsharpened; wooden handles.

Del tin 13th Century Falchion - 200
A lovely sword, but I'm drawing away from this period. Very hefty and solid. Bought directly from Del-tin, and only displayed since. As new. Blade is sharper than Del Tin's usual 1mm edge, although it gets blunter near the tip. Great opportunity to get a Del tin without the 3-4 month wait!

United Cutlery Anduril - 70
Yes, I like the Lord of The Rings too... no space for this on the wall, though. Comes with box and plaque (box is a little beat up), but sword is as new.
http://i1019.photobucket.com/albums/af319/Ant...110849.jpg


Vintage/ antique Kris - 20
Another e-bay find. Looks very old/ relic condition. The blade looks either wrought or patter-welded/ damascus, as the corrosion has eaten into some of the metal faster than the rest... I really don't know much about these things! It also has a weld in the blade where it has previously been broken and fixed - something I'm given to understand happened quite a lot. No scabbard or stand.

Cheers,

Ant

i don't seem to be able to edit my original post, so here's an update:

The Barnett sidesword has been sold, with Anduril and the rapier pending.

I have a couple of other things for sale though:


Hanwei Scottish Court Sword - 100
A couple of scuffs to the blade where the sword's been going in and out of the scabbard. The only other issue with it is that the vast majority of the silver plating has worn off. This is mainly down to the plating being very thin - I have spoken to other people about it, and some have received brand new swords with substantial plating worn away! Sword's fine otherwise.

Antique 1796 officers sword -150
The gentleman I bought this from said that it was a river-find. I can't remember which river, and either way it was probably an excuse for it's 'relic' condition! You can see by the photos that the blade it corroded at the tip. The Quillon has also broken off. It retains wire-wrap, whether this is original or not I can't be sure, but it looks comparably aged. The grip is also loose, but still fixed to the blade. Happy to consider offers on this one!

Another bump. Big Grin

The rapier and Anduril sales fell through, so everything is still available, apart from the Barnett smallsword!

Thanks,

Ant
