This listing is marked SOLD and is no longer available

Hi all,

Selling my henry V gen 2. A popular design, and though it remains an entry mid-level sword, it is well made and features a (shallow) hollow ground blade, is sturdy and reasonably well balanced.

I've spend an unreasonable amount of time improving this sword, and that's the most modified version of this sword I've seen so far. It was a great platform to experiment. Should you want more details on the what it went through, you can find all details on this topic here:;start=0

improvements include:

re-grinding the guard
reshaped the grip from round to oval
wrapped the grip with leather and added multiple raisers for a firm handling (butted seam but discreet)
hot peened the sword and got rid of the ugly screw on nut on top of the pommel
You can see that the sword hilt was blackened once, but I resumed the satin finish to match the scabbard shape that is lead soldered and that won't take any chemical bluing evenly.
Finished hilt and blade to satin

Made a scabbard for it. Top grain leather with longitudinal raiser, hand stitched at the back (the seam is not 100% straight as the leather stretched sideways, but it's hardly noticeable)
Added a hand formed steel shape ("lead soldered")
Added a functional belt/suspensions system.

The blade must have seen a bit of bottle cutting once. No dings nor blemishes.

I'm asking $600 dollars for the package + split shipping to US (around $60 total, so $30 each).
I'll take paypal with no extra.

Pm me if you are interested.
Thanks for looking,
