    For Sale: Albion SL Vinland (UK)

    Hello all,

    I am regretfully selling my Albion Vinland. Only received this sword 3 weeks ago and it has been in the box mostly and I have not used it for any cutting, the only thing I have done is give it a wipe and quick oil so it comes new as it did from Albion sharpened and faultless. My reason for sale is because I have decided to invest in HEMA equipment and therefore blunt training weapons. May be interested in trading (only blunts) just ask me. The sword cost me £495.6 including shipment from Albion Europe so I will be asking for £450 as it is literally unused +£10 for postage UK (more internationally) so think of it as a 'new' Vinland which is a tad bit cheaper than getting it from Albion Europe and you'll get it quicker too!
