Vintage Del Tins for Sale

Saw this over at My Armoury today. Based on the dates, these blades are probably the CK55 Krupp Carbon steel Del Tin used to use before switching over to chrome vanadium a few years back. Seriously thinking about picking up that single-hander in the first pic (2nd one in).

You know, I bought my Del Tin 5140 during this era ('91)  guess it's "vintage" now, too. At least the seller didn't list them as "antique".

The Type XIV they're selling is kinda tempting. Almost wanna get it to fill my gap of a late 13th century sword, doesnt look like it would break the bank either, just unsure of how the handling would be on these due to them being older.
