    F/S rest of my sword collection

    Hey folks!

    I'm finally disposing of the rest of my sword collection.

    The items are as follows:

    Windlass German Bastard sword

    Hard to come by nowadays. The sword is in mint condition, unsharpened, and comes with the scabbard. The blade has some light discolouration from long storage, otherwise OK.

    Specs: 102 cm long, 29 cm wide at the guard

    I'm asking 150 Euro plus shipping. The kitten is not part of the sale


    Hanwei Rapier

    The pommel has some tiny dots of surface rust. The blade is in mint condition and sharp -and very pointy!
    Comes with the scabbard.

    Specs: 114 cm long, 22 cm wide at the guard

    I'm asking 120 Euro plus shipping.


    2 x Sai

    Two Sai with octagonal blades and a pointy tip. I have no idea what material they are made of, but I guess it's stainless steel. The blades have some small nicks, the end of the wrap is coming loose at the guard. Probably not good for sparring, but the pair makes for nice wallhangers.

    Specs: 54,5 cm long, 14,5 cm wide at the guard

    I'm asking 30 Euro plus shipping for both.


    Windlass Warhammer

    Has some small spots of surface rust, otherwise OK.

    Specs: 63 cm long, 16,5 cm wide at the head

    I'm asking 30 Euro plus shipping.


    Windlass One-Hand Sword

    The tip has broken off, and the pommel has developed some superficial rust. Blade otherwise in mint condition, unsharpened. Comes with the scabbard. If the blade is ground down a little more at the edges, this sword could make for a great sparring weapon.

    Specs: 84 cm long, 18,5 cm wide at the guard

    I'm asking 50 Euro plus shipping.


    Shinai

    Mint condition. The shinai hung on my wall for several years, so the wood could probably use some oiling.

    Pics: http://imgur.com/a/p28I5#0

    Specs: 116 cm long

    I'm asking 20 Euro plus shipping.


    Bokken, Wakizashi and Tanto

    The bokken has a bohi and minimal wear, the others are pretty much pristine. I'd like to sell them all together, but I'll entertain individual offers as well.

    Pics: http://imgur.com/a/sav88#0

    Specs:
    Bokken: 101,5 cm
    Wakizashi: 55,5 cm
    Tanto: 29 cm

    I'm asking 30 Euro plus shipping for the trio.


    Red Bokken + Suburito

    Both show some wear, but are in OK condition. I'd like to sell them together, but I'll entertain individual offers as well.

    Pics: http://imgur.com/a/tei0U#0

    Specs:
    Bokken: 101,5 cm
    Suburito: 116 cm

    I'm asking 20 Euro plus shipping for the duo.


    Buckler

    I hope that's the right designation, my memory is fuzzy. In any case, it's a small shield
    The buckler has some rust, otherwise in good condition.

    I'm asking 20 Euro plus shipping.

    All items can be appraised and collected in Innsbruck, Austria. PayPal accepted. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.

    Windlass One-Hand Sword SOLD

    A few more items I want to get rid of:

    Paul Chen Practical Pro Katana

    My first customization project. I've been wanting to redo the fittings for some time now, but I just never got around to it, and probably never will. It's a little embarrassing to sell it in the current state, but maybe somebody else will show the sword more love than I did
    The blade is sharp and in good condition. It has 2 - 3 tiny marks, probably from neglecting to oil it regularly, but nothing that a few minutes with a scotchbrite can't fix. The habaki has some little discolouration (see pic).
    The glossy lacquer on the scabbard has a few scratches and dents.
    Now for the fittings: I ground down the wooden handle to a more elegant shape and added a little taper. The fittings were (very unprofessionally) hammered to fit the new, smaller handle. The wrap was redone using small cardboard triangles that really helped give the nice diamond shape to the spaces between the leather ito. Unfortunately, I didn't account for the wooden pins that hold the handle, and so the wrap looks odd in places. It's tight, but not very aesthetically pleasing. If you wish to use the sword for cutting, I strongly recommend rewrapping it.

    Specs (stolen from Sword of Might):
    Blade: 29 1/2"
    Tsuka: 15"
    Overall: 45 3/4"
    Weight: 3 Lbs
    Thickness at guard: .36"

    Price: 100 Euro + shipping


    Windlass Erbach Sword

    The sword is unsharpened and in good condition. The blade and the scabbard fittings also have a few marks, robably from neglecting to oil it regularly, but nothing that a few minutes with a scotchbrite can't fix. The scabbard has a few scratches. The pommel looks darker and aged compared to the other metal fittings, but I got the sword that way and I don't consider it a blemish - it actually looks good and gives the sword some character.

    Specs: 112 cm long, 25,5 cm wide at the guard

    Price: 120 Euro + shipping

    Bump!

    Most swords are sold, the Rapier is still waiting for a new home. I still have the original styrofoam box, so it's all ready to go
