Cancelled-posted above: Lutel Katzbalger 13007

Specs:
Blade length – 26 5/8”
Blade width at cross – 1 ½”
Overall length – 32”
Weight – 3lb 0.5oz

This is another lovely little sword. In as-new condition, hasn’t been used to cut with – just display. Comes with a thick leather scabbard with brass chape plates.

As you can see from the stats, it’s quite a small sword, but it has a lot of heft which is primarily in the grip and caused by the large pommel and cross. The pommel is massive (like most katzbalgers), and is very nicely done, as is the twisted steel cross. The grip is wood, and everything is held together by a decorative hexagonal brass nut.

The blade is very sharp, with proper edge geometry and no secondary bevel. There’s a good satin polish to the flat of the blade, which leaves the triple fullers dark for a nice contrast. There is distal taper down the blade, ending in an almost paper thin spatulate tip which is painfully sharp in itself! I haven't cut with this, but if I were to, I couldn't imagine it would have much of an issue slicing most things you put in front of it!

RRP from Lutel would be around £350 plus a wait and postage. I’m asking £250 for this, including postage in the UK. For European deliveries, I will split postage.

Price drop!

Now £230 including UK p&p.

The pics really don't do this sword justice (pardon my bad camera skills). A very handy, sharp, and well-formed blade with a matching scabbard. You can't go wrong! :D
