I am sure someone from Albion will chime in, but yes they did/do have a retailer program where you have to buy x# of swords. I almost had my old workplace set up before the boss decided to go with cheep crap. I have since disassociated myself from there. Big Grin
The pen is mightier than the sword, especially since it can get past security and be stabbed it into a jugular.
This site would be better if everytime I clicked submit... I got to hear a whip crack!

They have a couple over at www.kultofathena.com . Same price on Albions, but the rest of their items are discounted . Nice people, good customer service, and good prices. They carry lots of MRL, CASI, and a whole bunch of other stuff.

Check with them directly before ordering, as their site contradicts itself as to whether Albion items are available. This category page: http://www.ancientedge.com/category_35.html and this one: http://www.ancientedge.com/subcategory_37.html say the following:

These swords are no longer available through us.

Hey guys~

We do have a few retailers around the net. Ancient Edge is no longer carrying our stuff but there are others out there. Happy If you have any questions feel free to shoot me an email if you want.

Hi,

I really don't see why I should seek another seller than Albion for their own products. Mike is a wonderful contact person and I've always received a five-stars service when dealing with Albion directly. I only see one exception to this : if I wanted an Albion sword and could not wait 2 years for an historical scabbard made by Kevin Iseli, then I would maybe order it from Christian Fletcher. But that's a personnal feeling.

Cheers,

David

Or have the sword shipped directly from Albion to a " trusted " scabbard maker who will then forward both to you after the scabbard is finished.
You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

You're right, Jean. Too bad I didn't knew that when I bought my Laird a few months ago : now I'm waiting for someone to send his Laird to Russ Ellis , so he could make a scabbard for me.
