SOLD: Patrick Barta pattern welded type XI sword

Postby jdfletcher24 » 17 Aug 2016 21:42

FOR SALE

Replica of the Rovaniemi sword from the Helsinki University collection, c.1050-1100 onwards.
Oakeshott type XI with brazil nut pommel and stylised beasts heads cross guard.
Featured in Oakeshott's Sword in the Age of Chivalry and on p.59 of Records of the Medieval Sword.

I bought this recently but find that I don't really have a gap in my collection for it to fill and already have a Barta sword - so offer it back up for sale.

Condition is pretty much as new from Pat bar some trivial wear to one side of the pommel from rubbing on clothing or maille. Sharp pattern welded blade has a nice live figure, iron hilt with same and beautiful cross. Blade with iron inscriptions, +GICELINMEFECIT+ and +INNOMINEDOMINI+ accentuated with punched dots. Comes with scabbard and integral belt.

Patrick's work is second to none and, as far as I know, remains one of the only ways to obtain a sword from a smith who starts by making his own bloom and working iron and steel from scratch to create as close to an original sword as possible.

More photographs and details of the inlay, etc are here http://myarmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t=23176&highlight=barta

I am offering this up more or less for what I paid without the shipping, duty & VAT costs to get it over from the states; which is less than Pat's new price and without a 5 year wait.

£1250 plus postage to UK or Euro.
Paypal gift payment an option.

Fantastic sword and very interesting för me as a Swede. You live in the States right? What would you expect that the shipping cost would be to Sweden?

PRICE DROP

£1000 posted in the UK, 48 hrs tracked service with £1000 insurance.

Perhaps £1000 within Europe and I'll pay half the postage using a 5 day service and with £1000 insurance.
