St Georges Armoury or Albion

Postby Monster mani » 20 Dec 2016 20:42

Hey there I'm new to the forum. Sorry if this is in the wrong section but I think it fits here. I'm looking at getting a decent cutter. I've seen the Albion Fiore but being in the UK ide rather not have to import swords and worry about taxes. I have had Mark Vickers swords before but never a sharp. Does any one have any experience of a sharp Vickers and does it compare to an Albion? Many thank. And a merry Christmas.

Yes I've owned a few of Mark Vickers' sharps, as have several other people here - they are excellent and very good cutters (in general better cutters than Albion actually, as they are better steel and better sharpened). Albion are a little more historically accurate in edge geometry, but that varies from model to model. I would not hesitate to buy from Mark Vickers, though unless he has it currently in stock, you may expect to wait for a year to two years for a custom piece. He is slow unfortunately.

I like swords more than you.

St George seems to be a little less priced than Regenyei. How do they compare?
