Hello everyone...

In my unquenching thirst for weaponry I have decided to make a firm and resolute collection theme (yeah right...)

The period that has and will remain to capture all my interest is that of the Migration/Viking/Early Medieval periods. before Del Tin swords dominated my collection, but due to an unforseen and costly repair of my car that hit me at a bad time I had to sell off those pieces. Right now my collection consists of an Albion Squire Line Viking, a Paul Chen Godfred sword, and I have a ArmArt Budget Knightly sword that was fully finished by John Lundemo on the way here. Sometime soon my Scott Byler Viking longsax should also be finished. The Budget Knightly isn't a strict viking piece, but is influenced by Viking predecessors.

The maker can be almost anyone as long as the sword is decent quality functional blade. I know there is a Stamford available in the classifieds but I am not interested in that one. There really aren't any viking swords that I do not like except for overly ornate ones with extreme examples of inlays.

How can there be a perfect sword when PEOPLE come in all shapes and sizes too?

Well, it sounds like you'll need a Hersir, Berserkr, Jarl, Huscarl, Gaddhjalt, Gotland, maybe a Clontarf or Vinland. As well as the Norman, the Reeve, and Bayeaux. Possibly a Hospitaller or Ritter! Save now. You've got alot of work ahead of you!! Laughing Out Loud Laughing Out Loud WTF?!

Actually, to give my collection variety I am interested in getting swords from different makers. I love the NextGen Vinlad sword but the $700 with shipping is a bit much for me to afford all at once right now. I do miss my Migration D hilt and regret selling it, especially since I had a very nice custom scabbard for it. A next gen blade, an albion mark blade, and a squire line blade would be enough variety before I move on to other makers.

usually people suggest swords from places or makers I forgot to even check myself so that's why I am posting.

I'm curious why? It seems just about perfect in many ways.

Though with a sick child and some unexpected expenses, I'm no longer in the race to buy it myself.

I have a Del Tin Dark Ages sword that I have been artificially "aging" (adding a patina to the blade and "greening" the bronze) that I might be interested in letting go of.

Hi Lloyd.

It's an interesting choice, but I used to own one of these swords. Very nice and fairly light. Actually, if it could narrow it down I am a bit more interested in getting a "tea cozy" style pommel. One like that on the Del Tin 2102 is very nice. I also like the 2105. I no longer own any Del Tin swords and I would like to get one again, it's just that I have already owned the 2070 and would like to focus on another style.

What is the pricing?

Evolving during the so-called "Dark Ages" from the Roman Spatha, this sword features a distinctly Northern innovation: a wide central fuller that both lightens the blade and reinforces the edge, making it capable of a terrible blow.

Made of chrome vanadium steel by Del Tin Antiche, Italy, this sword is as beautiful as it is deadly. An ornate bronze pommel and guard contrast with the brown leather-wrapped grip.

Overall length: 37"Dark Ages Sword Hilt

Weight: 2 lbs 3 oz

ADT2070........ $460


For comparison
