Up for sale is this Baulaur Arms Italian longsword. This sword is basically an inexpensive Brescia Spadona and the balance on this sword is incredible. It's like the blade isn't even there (but in the best way).
I had the blade sharpened down to the last quarter so it can comfortably rest on the shoulder or be gripped for halfswording practice.
It's quite sharp, but you can see why it's a 2nd quality sword when you look down the blade. It's a little uneven and just ever so slightly warped in the last 5'' of the blade. I also aged the hilt furniture slightly as I wasn't fond of the original finish.
This would make an amazing practice sword for a backyard cutter, OR if you were curious about Balaur, here's your chance to get one less the sharpening fee (and you can see exactly what you're getting).
RufusScorpius: Seems to me the barbarians got real tame and friendly when they found out we had toilet paper.

AndiTheBarvarian: Yeah, best way to overtake fleeing Roman legionaries.

RufusScorpius: Must be why barbarians fight naked.

AndiTheBarvarian: Pants just would slow down fleeing Roman legionaries!

RufusScorpius: That's because you are ashamed of your skinny chicken legs. And a tunic is a long shirt. We don't wear skirts like Celts.

AndiTheBarvarian: We barbarians wear pants, not skirts like Romans.

RufusScorpius: Pants? How unmanly. I don't fault you for suggesting that because what would a barbarian know about manliness?

AndiTheBarvarian: Just wear your lorica next time, only with pants.

RufusScorpius: Everyone in Germany is now totally convinced that all Americans are cowboys living on a farm, whereas the people in Mexico didn't seem to notice anything unusual

RufusScorpius: I'm working from home now. Was on an international conference when my chickens decided to start squawking very loudly and for a long time. Could have been worse. at least I was properly dressed

RickDastardly: You know you've been inside too long, when you go out to the street to empty the rubbish and half way through remember to check that you are wearing pants! (Seriously!!!)

ouroboros: rhema1313 yup. The country legalized canabis and each province controls it's own market. The black market took a hit but it never disappeared. Bm Cost is about half of what it was before legalization--or, grow your own...
