Another piece from my collection that Iím putting on the block; my Arms & Armor GBS + Scabbard. The GBS is a classic collectorís piece and the quintessential flagship item for any collection. It is a style common to the first few decades of 16th century renaissance Germany and would be well suited in the hands of a Landsknecht reenactor.

If youíve never handled the GBS, itís really less of a bastard (hand-and-a-half) sword and more of a true two-hander. In short, itís a beastÖ easily the largest and most powerful weapon in my collection. Despite its size, however, it moves very gracefully and is easily controlled in two hands. The sword has been regularly serviced with scratches removed and oil applied. It has seen action against pool noodles and pumpkins and is a superb heavy weapon for post-Halloween slaughter.

Check out some of the myArmoury hands-on reviews:

The scabbard is a simple campaign scabbard made of heavy high-grade leather in black. Like the sword, the scabbard shows a bit of wear from handling but is in excellent condition overall. In fact, I like the scabbard much more now than when I first got it as it has been properly Ďbroken iní.

ADDED BONUS!!
I will throw in my belt frog/sword hanger from Hollow Earth Swordworks.
http://www.hollowearthswordworks.com/

This is an all-leather hanger that I purchased specifically for use with my GBS. Like all frogs/hangers it is only moderately historic but this design is very unique and works really well for this sword. It also works well as a rapier hanger.

This is a $40 value that Iíll throw in for free. So the value of this package (sword + scabbard + frog + US shipping) is now up to $1208Ö all for just $800.

SPECIAL OFFER!!
For a limited time I will drop the price to $750. That represents 38% off the $1208 regular value of this package. Everything outlined here will be included for this new price; sword + scabbard + frog + US shipping.

But this is a limited time offer. I will keep the price at $750 for the next five days only. After that time, at midnight EDT on Tuesday 9-23, the price will return to $800 and will remain there. So if youíve been considering this sword for your collection act fast and PM me. This is first come/first serve so the first private message to my in-box will be the winner.

Two separate deals have fallen through so this sword is back on the block. I will consider reasonable offers (not looking for trades right now). PM me if interested.
