Preview of a new Museum Line Hallmark Sword -
The Søborg Sword
During excavations at Søborg castle a number of swords have been unearthed. Many of these are preserved in the National Museum in Copenhagen. One of them (inventory number D 8801) is an especially fine example of a long bladed knightly sword from the high medieval period. The original sword is featured as XI.3 in Oakeshott's "Records of the Medieval Sword."
Albion's Museum Line recreation of this sword from Peter's detailed documentation is exact in every detail to the original sword. Our official announcement will be made on Monday, complete with specifications and a short article by Peter Johnsson about the complex geometry of this sword.
The reserve price for this sword is $2,530.

...Just wanted to share with you a pic from my wedding last weekend, where I spoke my vows upon the steel of my Laird sword from Albion.
The final detail that made the day perfect. Thanks for your dedication to fine workmanship and superior service!

...All I can say is... WOW!
I ordered and received two of Albion's Maestro Liechtenauer sparring
swords and words cannot really express the beauty and emotion one
I am truly impressed with the craftsmanship, quality and
accuracy of these blades. Sparring or not, these works of art are
worthy of all the praise they muster.
I am already looking forward to my future orders with Albion. Please
continue to execute such fine work and your efforts to maintain the
resurrection of HEMA through craftsmanship on par with no other.
Delighted, Elated and Happy...
-- James T
...Just a quick note to let you know that my Cluny arrived safe and sound today with no further questions.
With the possible exception of the Svante this must be the most perfect Albion yet.
The attention to detail is stunning and the balance and handling is superb.
Craftsmanship is top notch and, with the thrilling story of the original, this package is top drawer.
Thank you my friend.
In Hoc Signo Vinces
...The Maximilian arrived a couple of days ago and it’s had my full attention ever since.
The aesthetic details are striking. The writhen-style furniture and the blades double fullers give the sword an air of quality, without seeming overbearing.
You’ve really perfected your method of covering the grip and try as I might I’m unable to locate the seam.
The level of fit and finish is unsurprising, in that it’s your typical high level of clean execution. I have to admit that I was surprised by the Maximilian's handling qualities.
This is a big sword and as you know I’m a lover of big swords. I was expecting a good deal of heft with the Maximilian and while it has that, it doesn’t compromise the swords handling qualities which are quite nice.
It takes a good deal of knowledge and experience to produce a sword of this size that possesses this type of dynamic handling ability.
The Albion team should be proud of their success in achieving such attributes with this latest entry.
Overall the Maximilian is one of your most impressive efforts to date.
Some of your models have already become somewhat of an industry standard for their type and I predict the Maximilian will be such a sword.
...At long last, after months of waiting, I finally had a chance to handle my new Senlac.
She is a gorgeous cutting sword. I was surprised to discover how lively she feels in hand, and what a slender yet deadly blade!
The Senlac is a joy to handle paired with a shield and lends herself to dynamic and ferocious fighting.
Albion has delivered another winning sword, but what else would I expect?
Thanks again to everyone in the Albion crew for helping to make such a classic, high medieval sword.
...I just received one of the antiqued Castellan swords from the Moat Sale. Even in its rusted state, I can see and feel that this is a fine sword with a highly agile blade.
The Type V pommel has depth and character, and fits nicely in hand, and the flared Type 11 guard is very elegant.
Ironically, the Castellan is not a sword that I had ever planned on buying, but now that I've got it I'm glad that I did.
Special thanks to Mike Sigman who, having heard what I intended to use the sword for, exchanged the antiqued Castellan I had requested on his own initiative because the other antiqued Castellan was better suited for what I had in mind. Now that's customer service.
Thanks once again to the Albion team; I am looking forward to cleaning my sword up, and making a grip for her. Another fine piece by Albion Swords.
...I am super excited that I received my Yeoman today and was blown away by the quality of work you amazing folks there have done, the sword is
I can not describe how happy I am and to have it
a few days before my 38th birthday is just an added bonus.
you for being so wonderful for your customer service and thank you for
having such talented craftsmen. This has been a brilliant experience
for me buying my first sword and I shall treasure it forever.
-- Graham B
...I got my Yeoman sword Friday morning and it has hardly left my hands since! I just wanted to thank you everyone at Albion for the excellent work that was done to produce such a beautiful sword.
This was my first authentic sword I have purchased, so it has great sentimental value to me. I will definately be a repeat customer and look forward to purchasing from you all again! Thanks again,
-- Jason B
