One of my all time favorites.  Saw one come up for sale on AA but I was too slow.

Nice! That would go well with just about any crusader-era kit.

Oh yes, that or their Hospitaller sword...that's a sweet Type XI.  Is it funny that the Templar one is the more popular of the two?  I can't recall ever seeing one of the Type XI's in a collection anywhere.  There's not even a review of one on MyA and they've got a review for nearly all of the Albion swords, including the Museum line.

Personally, I'm a bigger fan of the Hospitaller.  That's one of my daily 'check stock' items on KoA.  Something about the proportion of the pommel on the Templar throws it off a little for me, and I really dig the simplicity of the Hospitaller.

Man oh man,

I'm more of a fan of the Hospitaller too, but if I hadn't just invested a ton of money on other kit stuff, and needed a good cutting sword, I'd be all over this!  What an awesome find!  Thanks for posting this up Sir Ian!

There was a nice A&A type XI for sale on MyA not too long ago for a really good price...unfortunately, I blew my sword budget for the year on the Crecy and DBK scabbard that was built for it.  I'm not complaining mind you.

I really like the Machiavelli, and may get one eventually. It's a little late for my main periods of interest, but I really like the sword, and of course there's some good documentation on its use out there too.

Sir Ian, there are two Albion Knights for sale on MyA - one for $500 + shipping being sold by Paul Hofmann, the other $700 shipped, being sold by Jim Adams.  They are still up, not marked sold.  I really wanted the Knight, but I just can't do it.

Oooo... thank you for bringing that to my attention.  I kind of bought a gun today though, so.... ahhhhhhhhh what to do?!?

I always look at it this way Sir Ian:
"Well I bought a gun today, so what does it matter if I spend $100 on a fine meal?!  I mean, the meal, in relation to the price of the gun, is nothing!" LOL and it's now turned into a tradition of sorts.  When one of us buys a gun in Prescott, we go to Murphy's afterward :D

So buy the sword Sir Ian, buy the sword!
