Wanted: Viking Sword w/Suspension for Gift
This listing has been REMOVED and is no longer active

My girlfriend's birthday is coming up and, while she has tended to be very good about my sword acquisitions, she has also looked at me funny more than once. Well, I'd like to turn the tables a little, but just any sword won't do.

She is a green-eyed redhead with a little Irish and a lot of Slavic, both of which trace back to Scandinavian roots. She is intrigued by all things Viking, loved her visits to Iceland & the Faroes, and speaks fondly of her mom's Claymore (yes, there's a bit of Scottish in the family tree as well).

As such, I think it would blow her mind if my next acquisition was actually for her. I'm looking for a decent set-up with scabbard and belt, but not looking to sell the farm.

Her aesthetic preferences would lean toward any of the following Albions: Vinland, Gotland, Clontarf, Huskarl or Jarl. In other words, semi-ornate to ornate furniture, but no bronze/brass/copper/gold - she's a white metal girl. And it doesn't have to be an Albion - those just serve as a good reference point and a common language amongst forumites.

One final point - I've considered the VA Hedemark, but I have a preference for peened vs. hex, and, while generally an attractive piece, it does not have the etching/inlay characteristic that I believe she would prefer.

Thanks for looking. PM me if you have something that might fit the bill.

Just bumping back to first page. Had a couple of brief conversations, but haven't pulled the trigger on anything yet.

To add a little additional info, I'm trying to stay below the $1,000 mark, but I also feel no compunction to spend THAT much if I see something I like for less.

I'll let this roll a little longer and see if anything pops.

Thanks for checking the post.
