Financial realities are forcing me to off-load a few pieces from my collection but, as the saying goes, my loss is your gain.

First up for sale is my Albion Kingmaker, 15th century sword with a ‘campaign worn’ red grip. Simply put, this is the best single-handed sword I’ve ever handled. The blade is beautifully hollow-ground with a very distinct taper, typically of many Type XVIII swords. The pommel is a pure work of art, simple and well executed, with a cap that is a completely separate piece. The point is very distinct and, like many Albion swords, can be best described as ‘wicked’. Handling is precise and balanced making this replica a pleasure to wield. I could go on but my feelings and observations are best captured in my hands-on review here:

This review also contains many higher-quality pictures than the quick tabletop shots found below.

This has been primarily a display piece with occasional handling and some cutting against soft targets (pool noodles). It is in excellent condition and has been well loved and maintained.

Bump... and a price reduction, now an even $1000... that's almost a quarter off the standard price.
