    Very nice find there.

    I will pass up the sword because of it lacking grips and I'm not sure where I'd get some strong grips professionally made for it.

    I am buying the battle axe that the seller also has on auction. I have a nice space for it and can take care of the handle myself Hopefully no one gets too crazy near the end.

    Ahhh, I didn't see that Battle-Axe! What a beautiful piece!

    I too hope that someone with the correct spirit buys these items, to preserve for our future generations, and keep our identity strong.

    I hope to have a magnificent collection one day. It is an revitalizing feeling being able to have a direct contact with the past holding artifacts like these!

    I will take a gallery of pictures of the battle axe after it makes its journey across the Atlantic, possibly not the first time


    http://www.ezsniper.com/ is a decent site for when you can't keep bidding on ebay but want an item.


    I can't wait to get a handle going for this monster.

    I can't believe you scored it!
    There would have been some serious interest in a piece of such quality!!
    That Axe MUST be taking pride of place on the wall!! Could you post some pics once you have a handle for it? I've watched the sword float past $1000AU which is out of my reach [img]images/smilies/skadi_forum/sighw000.gif[/img]

    It's only a reproduction, but I'm planning on buying this axe head from Jell Dragon sometime in the next several months for a little display I'm putting together...

    They have some really nice spearheads swords and seaxes too, though I want a display seax and not a blunted battle-reenactment one.

    I will definitely make use of my camera once it arrives.

    The gentleman sent it out on the 3rd of January, not sure how long a UK --> Eastern US journey takes, but I'm excited to own such a piece.
