I offer for your consideration my brand-new ATrim Type XIIa.2. I recently returned from a deployment to a whole closet full of pointy goodness, and have recently been deciding on what I want to keep versus what I should sell. Since I have several Type XIIas already, I figured I would let this one go, being I just got it this week. Yes, this sword is brand-new.
The sword is listed on Tried & True Armory as the Type XIIa.2. It's a very quick and nimble 1.5 hander with waisted shoulders, a Type J1 pommel and an elegant Style 2 cross. This lightweight sword wields excellently in either one or two hands, but still has plenty of blade presence and authority in the cut. It's solid as a rock and rings perfect like a crystal bell - with a razor sharp edge. I purchased quite a few month back on pre-order. I ordered it with the full-finish (+$70.00). Once it came it, it was sent to the Custom Sword Shoppe for a regrip (oxblood leather over cord) and was fitted with a wood core scabbard with an oxblood leather cover.
The florescent lighting I took the photos with makes the finish look more brownish, but I assure you it's actually a nice deep oxblood red. The grip and scabbard colors match perfectly.
I paid $475.00 for the sword and paid CSS $300 for the leatherwork - for a total of $775.00 invested. I am asking $500.00 shipped free CONUS (Paypal preferred), which essentially means I am giving you the leatherwork for FREE. This sword is brand-new, I only took it out of the box to photo it. It ships in a hard rifle case inside of a white remailer box for added protection.
I am not interested in trades and am not currently negotiable on price. PM me if interested.
Get your new ATrim for Christmas now with absolutely no wait with CSS custom leatherwork!
