I am selling a cold steel hand and a half sword. It is the older version than the current model with the shorter handle It has not done much of anything except sit in a closet so the condition you receive it in should be the same as the condition I did, with the exception of a small tear in the leather on the scabbard. It has been repaired with a patch. See pictures. Other than that, it is in perfect condition. Asking $200 USD + Shipping. I will also be cross posting this item on the cold steel forums and the my armory forums.
tancred: MOK, yeah, official recognition was what I was referring to. Otherwise, anyone making up their own coat is just fun. Definitely encourage it for anyone interested. I was just being goofy for the most part.

redscorpion: Those that don't recognize my heraldry are doomed to be crushed by it. They will, in the end, look up to my coat of arms on the bottom of my boot.

MOK: Actually, anyone anywhere can have their own "coat of arms" with whatever design they want. Official recognition of such devices, on the other hand, is a whole different thing that isn't available in most places in the modern day (including the US)...

tancred: Nerdthenord, agreed. Great indeed! Redscorpion, I don't mind the traditional rules for heraldry. They do make exceptions, but those are mostly modern and for rich and famous people. Not sure what to think about that.

nerdthenord: I am American! We have no laws of heraldry. Each and every citizen may have their own coat of arms with whatever design they want! Just another reason living in America is great!

redscorpion: I make my own rules of heraldry. If you don't like it, then by force of arms I will take your castle, slay all who oppose me. All your lands will pay my tribute.

tancred: My totally unofficial one is pretty simple. Red and white, parti-colored. Right side is a white field with red Jerusalem Cross. Left side is red field with white Maltese Cross.

tancred: Remember everyone that your coat of arms have to abide by the rules of heraldry--only certain colors can be used, and only certain colors can touch each other. That said, I think yours, Christain, would be pretty tough to pull off!
Sept 17, 2019 8:47:36 GMT
christain: My coat-of-arms would literally be a 'coat of arms'---a sword in one hand, shield in another, stein of beer, smoke, crescent wrench, hammer, steering wheel, bank card, grocery buggy, toilet paper( ), last will and testament... Life is good...

redscorpion: My coat of arms would be a scorpion stinger on a bio-hazard emblem... oh wait....
Sept 16, 2019 22:44:42 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Mine would be a fat bear sitting before a bowl of spaghetti with the motto: "Raise the fork"!

nerdthenord: Changed my avatar to my new personal coat of arms. A sword wielding meerkat on a dark blue background lol!

redscorpion: Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin. Obviously. Not even part of the discussion. They sit upon the top of the mountain.

MOK: I've got rock'n'roll - it satisfies my soul - and if that's all there is - it ain't so bad! Rock'n'roll!

ouroboros: They all pale to I.Ron Maiden
