This listing is marked SOLD and is no longer available


I have several swords for sale.

I don't really *want* to get rid of these, I like them all, but there are other hobbies that I do want to spend money on right now...

so, here are the s-words that I am willing to part with =)

From left to right: Albion Crecy (dark blue grip), semi-custom Gus Trim XIII 1326, Valiant Armory Castile, Ritter Arms Trojan.


I will take pay-pal, check, money order, whatever.
I will ship USPS, Fed-Ex, UPS - your preference.
I'll cover the first $25 of shipping.
Private message me, email me, whatever you like.

If you want any other pictures just let me know.
*for added security and comfort of the buyer*
When I ship the sword, I will send you a link with a single continuous video displaying the sword in the box, closed up in fron of your eyes on the counter of and delivered to the parcel service of your choice.


The second sword in this picture is a semi-custom Angus Trim 1326. This is one of the only XIII sword that I know of on the market... or rather that WAS on the market, as Gus doesn't really seem to be producing swords much these days. =(
It is a pretty darn close copy of this sword from Oakeshott's book, "Records of the Medieval Sword"


Most of these by Gus had a flattened diamond cross section. The XIII in Records does not; it has a lenticular cross section, as all good XIII's should.
This one has a lenticular cross section. It is a one of a kind =)
$600

In addition to this, Tom Kinder did me the favor of trying to match the cross guard and pommel from Records. I used Adobe Illustrator to figure out the approximate length of the cross guard myself =)




Tom also polished out the fullers for me. I think it is one freaking handsome blade.

Two important things

Somehow I forgot to list the price.

I'm asking $600 for this one of a kind sword.

Also, someone asked for the sword's measurements. The Tried and True's site is down, so I totally should have thought of that already.

Over all length just shy of 40"
Blade length = 30.5"
Blade width = 2.25
Fullers are 17.25 inches long
Cross = 8.5 inches

Cheers.

Hey friends,

I have had a lot of questions about the peen. There's probably a lot more information on SBG about this (I remember reading posts) but Tom and Gus were doing this thing with their hex nut assemblies that make them look peened, when there's really a hex nut underneath. Some people claimed that this is actually better than a peen. I can't say if that's so, but here it a pic if you want.




I have had a lot of people express interest, but no hard commitments yet.

I've also had some questions about the weight. Unfortunately, I don't have a scale to weigh it, but I can tell you that the thing is light. If I can get my hands on a buddy's scale this week I will post the weight, assuming it doesn't sell first.
