Folks,

I'm selling a first-generation Hanwei Godfred sword (formerly listed in the thread For Sale: three Viking swords; the other two swords have sold). This has a pattern-welded blade with a slightly less refined cross-section than the current model; it's a flattened hexagon with the fullers ground into the faces. The fullers do not reach the guard, but stop about two inches (5 cm) short of it. The fullers don't quite reach the tip bevel, either, but the current model is the same in this respect. The pattern-welding is more deeply etched in mine than it seems to be in the current model, so it stands out much more clearly. Otherwise the older and newer versions are similar. The overall length is 34.5" (88 cm), the blade length is 28.5" (72 cm), the grip length is 4.25" (11 cm), and the weight is a bit less than 2.5 pounds (1 kg). It is sharp from the factory. Like the other swords here, the mounting is firm, the grip is tight and solid, and the blade is straight. It comes with the original suede-covered scabbard, which fits beautifully. However, the weight-bearing band, which carries the suspension straps, now slips about three-quarters of an inch (2 cm), probably because of shrinkage of the wood and leather and flattening of the suede surface. This can probably be fixed by shimming it, but I haven't tried. Also, when I got this sword I dyed the woven-suede grip and the scabbard cover black, rather than the stock chocolate brown.

You can see photos of the sword at this Google Drive link.

I'm asking $295 shipped in the U.S.A. Sorry, no trades. Foreign buyers will have to discuss shipping. I accept PayPal (for Goods and Services, please add 3% to cover the fee) or check or money order. Please send me a PM if you're interested.

Best,

Mark Millman
