We are having a post-Holiday, pre-price increase Sale!

On January 15th, we will be instituting a necessary price increase on most models.

From now until January 15th, you can still get the swords at the 2005 price and take an additional $50 off.

This will probably be the only sale we'll have in 2006.

Best,

Howy

Howy,

Does the sale extend to Museum Line and Squire Line models in addition to the Next Gens?

Sorry for the double post. I was worried my question might be missed due to the small print in the "subject" line.

Does this sale include swords that arent in production yet?

I'm assuming that the 2005 prices will be honored for those of us with orders and deposits in place. Correct?

Placing an order and putting in a deposit is a contract. It locks you in on the details of that transaction.

Well...there's that kick in the ass. I suppose I'll should do the long-term financially responsible/short-term financially irresponsible thing and buy two.

That's the spirit! I'm still on the fence, unfortunately.

Ordered mine Big Grin

The nice thing is that I can drive over on my lunch hour and pick it up directly from Albion!

OhOh ......... there goes the budget.

Will think it over for a few days but I feel the Tritonia calling: What is the current waiting time for a Tritonia these days ?
The site says in stock so does that mean right away or in two weeks Question Question Question

Feeling weaker and weaker ............ Sad Wink

Waiting for a custom order from A & A and I have to get something from Albion soon to maintain the order of the Universe. Eek! How is that for rationalizations and finding excuses to get another sword. Laughing Out Loud

It will vary depending on model -- some adjustments need to be made depending on the time involved in making each piece as well as increases in the costs of materials and supplies.

Economically, we (and every other business in the U.S.) have a lot of economic factors bearing down on us -- health care for our workers (which keeps increasing every year), increases in delivery fees (to us -- the last shipment of steel we got cost us double the transport fee than usual), bank loans and other costs to keep the doors open.

And yes, any order placed is always honored at the price at the time of the order. We've always done that.

Best,

Howy

yes, most things get more expensive. unfortunately my income doesn't increase the same way.
hopefully some swords keep a reasonable price (for my budget). else ill have to look for other options again.
i feel your adjustments will not make any sword cheaper. Wink


btw, it would be great to see albions webpage updated soon. there are still objects that are supposed to get available in fall 2005. thats going to be quite hard to accomplish. Big Grin
