Hi All,

Up for sale is Del Tinís 15th C hand-and-a-half (5157).

When the Royal Armouries had a bit of a renovation a few years ago, they fastened a few weapons to the walls to encourage visitor participation: you can touch and feel what a Ďrealí sword felt like. This Del tin is one of those swords, and itís the sword which drew me over from Eastern to Western arms and armour. As such, Iím very sad to see it go.

Specs can be found on Del tinís website. I ordered thius straight from Del tin, so itís pretty much as new.There a few casting pits in the furniture, as is usual with Del tins. The edge is the usual butter-knife knife <1mm sharp. Hasnít been sharpened beyond this, so there are no scratches or file-marks to worry about. The tip is a little rounded, but 5 minutes with a dremmel would make it pointy if you wanted it to be. The wire wrap is very well done, and sanded down so it doesnít hurt the hands at all. The furniture is all solid, and Iíve just given the whole sword a good once-over with a fine grit sanding pad, so the lacquer has been taken off and itís all nice and shiny!

Brand new from Del tin, these would cost around £320 plus postage and a 3-month wait. Iím letting this go for £280 including postage.

This price is firm because, as I said, Iíd be sad to see it go and if it doesnít sell, Iím more than happy to keep it!

I accept payment by cash, cheque, or bank transfer. Paypal is also an option, but add 3% for fees.

Pm or e-mail me at a.mercer@leeds.ac.uk if youíre interested






Cheers for looking,

Ant
