I am trying to decide between Albion's Sempach and Talhoffer for my next sword. Both swords have characteristics that I like, so I am having trouble deciding between the two. I was hoping someone who had handled both (or any of the other Albion XVas/XVIIs) could offer their opinion about how the two differ in the handling department.
Of the two, the Talhoffer will feel a bit livelier in hand. The Sempach is a well balanced sword that feels a little more robust due to its hexagonal cross section. Personally, I find the Sempach to be the more appealing of the two swords aesthetically. However, if your basis for buying is strongly oriented around "Which is the lighter and more agile feeling?" the Talhoffer will have an edge.
