In excellent, as-new condition, and will be posted in the original white Albion box.

Dark brown (almost oxblood) coloured grip. Has been kept oiled and only dry-handled and displayed.

If I were to describe this sword in one word, it would be ‘elegant’. The blade is quite slim, and combined with the beautiful hollow-grind, is very light and nimble.

I would prefer to trade this, if possible, rather than sell it. Ideally I’d like an Albion Sovereign with bronze pommel, but might be interested in other Albions or similar high-quality swords. As a guide, the trade price for this would be £1000, including postage and paypal charges: money could be exchanged either way.

I’m in the UK, so would prefer to post locally. The EU wouldn’t be too bad, but please bear in mind that this would bump up the postage cost and could cause headaches if there are complications with delivery.

Feel free to pm me with any interest.

Cheers,

Ant

Ant, I must say that I really want that sword and curse the gods that I have nothing to trade with.

Apologies, Ulf! :(

i'm trying to be strict with myself on this one: trades only at this time, but you never know: that might change!

Cheers,

Well, I have a wife, two fine children and a house close to a lake in Sweden... Could that be a decent trade for your sword?
