The starting bid is a steal. The sword itself goes for $1540 new, plus this has the scabbard and a customized grip. Getting that new through CF, as a complete package, would probably run around $2200 - $2700.

Looks like they stuck a Talhoffer crossguard on it. Weird.

For perspective my motorcycle was cheaper Inc all we want to do to it, than that blade with mods new. Right now it actually costs more than we paid for the bike.

Looks like it sold for less than what the sword costs brand new.  Nice steal, whoever won it.

I was tempted, but it just uses the Talhoffer crossguard, and I'm not a fan of the custom grip / scabbard design. Great price though!
