Free to Good Home- anyone who can heat treat long blades

Postby Peter Remling » Wed Apr 17, 2019 6:56 pm

I found I still have an old unused Albion Moat Sale Blade laying around. This one was one of the blades NOT-HEAT TREATED. It's been in the work room for at least 10 years. It looks in very similar condition from the way I got it. It will require some cleaning, grinding, heat treating and polishing but if you were going to do if from scratch this will save you a lot of time, work and expense.

As the title says it's free on two conditions:

First: the individual must already have the skills and equipment to complete this as a sword. It deserves to be made and not buried in a garage for another 10 years.

Second: I will ship it only in the U.S. and the recipient will pay the shipping after they receive it via Paypal, check whatever. I plan on shipping USPS and will try to ship as inexpensively as possible. Still should end up between $20-30 dollars.

The overall length is 49 7/8"
Blade length is 37 7/8"
Width at guard is 2 1/4"

I know there are a few people here who have the skills so just let me know. Don't hesitate to ask questions.

Excuse my ignorance in blade technology, but what happens if it's not heat-treated? Will it bend like aluminum, or not spring back?

I'd like to consider having it for a display sword (or a con prop), if no one else here has a use for it.

A non treated blade will readily take a set if bent. Also it hold an edge nearly as well as a heat treated blade.

There are a few people here who have the ability to heat treat this size blade on the forum. I'd rather it go to one of them but I'll consider your request if no one comes forward.

Pete, I may have a taker in the form of a friend who's a few years' into Smithing that could use this sort of project, though he's not a forum member. Thoughts/preferences?
