This sword was removed for a bit but is now back up, and will remain up until the end of May.*

A couple of things:

#1 Asking price has been significantly reduced to $3600.

#2 I am also open to cash plus trades, taking trades at fair market value. (This means what they would bring if resold here or in a similar market, not what you paid new. ) Since this is a mostly western forum, with a preponderance of Albion swords in the collection of visitors, I am particularly open to cash plus trades involving the Svante, the Solingen, the Brescia Spadona, the Sword of St Maurice of Turin, the Gaddhjalt and the Jarl. Of course, anything by Patrick Barta, Vladimir Cervenka, Vince Evans, Jake Powning, etc. would also be of interest.

So, if you are sitting on a large western collection including two or even several of the above, and want a top custom Japanese-style sword by a master American smith this could work out nicely.

As I noted I accept Paypal, including credit cards, and I don't charge 3%.

Thanks for looking!

(*After the end of May, if this has not found a new home, I'll likely be sending it to the mounter.)

Bump for the weekend.

Only thing above I forgot to add, is, yes, I can do an installment plan, equal installments, up to three months.

If you're wondering, "Could I be the next owner of this?", if you're curious about terms, if you can see it in your house, on your mantel, or in your dojo, but you haven't written -for whatever reasons- just drop me a line.

Bottom line: I'd really like to pass this on to a new and appreciative home before the end of the month, and I'm willing to be pretty darned flexible in order to make that happen!
