    For sale: Tinker Pearce Type XVIII Arming Sword

    I’m selling this beloved Tinker Pearce arming sword to make way for other projects.

    Balance and handling are very nice. The piece has great blade presence while still being agile. This sword has not been cut with.

    The sword comes with a leather-covered wooden scabbard with metal chape by Tinker, with integral risers ready to add your own sword belt if you wish.
    Price is US$950; payment is via PayPal.

    This blade is located in New Zealand. I will ship anywhere internationally either via New Zealand Post or courier, with full insurance, at cost.

    Historically inspired modern Type XII sword in the style of 15th C. arming swords. Blade is 5160 spring steel hardened to HRc58-60, then selectively drawn down to HRc45-48 through the spine, shoulders and tang. Pommel and Guard are mild steel. The hilt is dismountable using a 5mm. Allen sleeve nut countersunk into the pommel. The handle is sandwiched hardwood wrapped in real linen cord then covered in brown leather in an 'antique' finish. This sword is very lively in the hand with excellent point-control and tracking. This is a very rigid sword suited to either armored or unarmored use- a good 'all arounder’.”
