Hello
I owned this saber, many years ago, and sold it,But cant remember who I sold it to. So I was wondering who owns it now?
My senior moments are getting longer :-)


Thank

I don't know who you sold it to, but I'm the current owner of it. Happy This saber seems to have passed hands through many owners. It's a very, very awesome sword.

I owned it, too. I felt great in the hand, but was never super happy with it. It has an unusual curve to it that reminds me more of a Persian weapon or something. Sure felt great in the hand. hm. Now I want it again. ha!

If I'm not mistaken, I think you might have bought it from Karl, and I bought it from you. (Man, you and I need to get together sometime... it's been way too long!)

I think I might have bought it from Nathan. I can't remember. You are right, though, we should get together.

And as I recall, you'd bought it from someone who was also not the original owner, right?

It's funny how many people have owned this sword. I wish it had passport stamps on it.

But we still don't know who bought it from Karl. Nathan, do you remember who you got it from?

(I have a sword like this, that has passed through many hands - the Atrim Makers Mark XVIa. I'm not sure how many hands, but it stops with me, as long as I'm alive.)

Hello
The owner PM`d me. If things work out, it will be mine again :-) I`d like to get the old guy some new knees at Yeshuah`s Sword. I always loved the blade and even liked the guard.But the grip and pommel looks like just something they had on-hand.
Thanks all, for your input
