Postby admin » 04 Jul 2006 13:46

I wish I had the spare cash to buy this... It is modelled on Henry V's sword in Westminster Abbey:

Jonathan has been selling a large amount of extremely nice stuff. 8)

Apart from those Albion bronze swords, I can't think of anything that he sold that has not been excellent.

Lines are too clean & not enough rust for me.
Nice, but aren't the quillons shorter than on the Henry V sword ?

Fair enough, from memory I thought the original had longer quillons. Where is the sword kept now ?

Presumably it once formed part of his tomb's achievements.

Yes, together with the jousting helm.
I *think* the sword is in Leeds now - that famous centre of culture and Imperial importance ;).

This is the one I'm sighing over at the moment - but I won't be able to afford it. I'm way overspent on my sword budget as it is :cry:

It's English about 1740
