You know it, you love to hate it, and hate to love it.
One of the first production sword designs ever to roam the Ren Faires throughout the land . . .
Oh yeah, it was in Sucker Punch too (sheathed, wtf?)
$175 shipped CONUS, PayPal
Got this as a nostalgic project piece on SBG's sale a few weeks back.
The tang is surprisingly better than I thought it would be.
Ground off the peen and dinged up the pommel.
You'd have to take down the shoulders or shorten the grip to re-peen (which was my plan).
Grinding in a fuller wouldn't be a bad idea.
Fun project piece for a 'barbarian sword', backyard zombie slaying, etc.
Original assembled OAL: 38"
in Scabbard: 41"
Blade tip to shoulders: 27.5"
Hilt (guard, grip, pommel): 10 and 7/8"
Guard: 6.25" wide
Pommel: 2 and 1/8" diameter
Sword weight: 3 lbs. 4.6 oz.
weight in scabbard: 4 lbs.

Things to fund - so it's gotta go.
