Layaway Information

Layaway Policies

We offer a layaway plan on select products so you may pay for your order over a period of 60 days. Products that are eligible for layaway will show "Layaway Available: Yes" on the product page.

Here's how it works:

The total amount of the order excluding shipping, tax, or fees is divided into three (3) equal payments. The first payment is due with the order, the second payment is due 30 days later, and the final payment is due 60 days after the order.

There is a $15 non-refundable fee for layaway orders. This fee is added to the first payment along with the shipping and any tax. The first payment is made when the order is placed.

Example: Your order total is $300 plus $12.75 shipping and handling. If you select the layaway option, your payments would be:

  • $127.75 (1/3 of purchase = $100 + $15 layaway fee + $12.75 shipping)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)

If your initial payment is made by credit card, we will automatically process the 2nd and 3rd payments at the appropriate time using the same credit card information. You will be reminded via email that a payment will be charged. If you need to change this for any reason, please contact us.

For payments made other than credit card, payment must be received within seven (7) days of the due date or the order is subject to cancellation. You will receive a reminder via email that a payment is due.

If you wish to complete payment early and have your order shipped, you may contact us at any time during the 60 day period. There is no penalty for prepayment.

Additional products may be added to a layaway order without penalty. A new payment schedule will be calculated based on when additional products are added.

If you wish to complete payment early and have your order shipped, you may contact us at any time during the 60 day period. There is no penalty for early payment.

Cancellations of layaway orders are subject to a restocking/processing fee of 10% of the order total (not including tax and shipping costs). This restocking fee is in addition to the $15 non-refundable layaway fee.

Overview

A faithful recreation of an historical sword named after its find site, an area now known as "Tritonia" in the medieval part of Stockholm, Sweden. An archaeological excavation at the site yielded the remnants of a pier, and this extraordinary sword.

It was still in its scabbard and remarkably intact when it was awakened from its sleep in the muddy clay of the medieval shoreline (missing only part of one arm of the cross-guard, a section of the point and the organic portions of the grip). The original sword is now on display at the Museum of Medieval Stockholm, Sweden.

The sword is a stunning eye-catcher and presented many interesting challenges during the process of reconstruction. It was obviously made by a master of the craft and combines awesome cleaving power with agility and speed.

Despite its hefty weight it is smooth and responsive in handling. Its blade, tang, cross and pommel were skillfully forged with a good eye for beautiful proportions and a deep understanding of the dynamic qualities of a broad slashing sword of such imposing dimensions. A distinguishing feature is how the distal taper is designed to give support and stiffness to the thin cutting section of the blade.

A very similar sword with the same broad blade and spherical pommel is seen in a sculpture in the “Easter Shrine” of the Cathedral, Constance, dated to 1300, depicting a soldier sleeping by the tomb of Christ. Weapons like these were effectively wielded from horseback and were popular during the later part of the 13th C and the first half of the 14th C.

The sword made in the workshops of Albion is a direct result of a project for the Museum of Medieval Stockholm. Swordsmith Peter Johnsson was commissioned to forge an exact reconstruction that was to be exhibited alongside the original.

The knowledge gained during this project is now resulting in a faithful and highly realistic reconstruction made by the skilled artisans of Albion. No effort is spared to make the swords true to the original not only in dimensions but also in performance and aesthetic details.

The blades are hand-ground and finished to a high satin finish. Each blade is individually heat treated in Albion's Shop for maximum flexibility and cutting performance. All of our blades are thoroughly tested to destruction to ensure that they are as durable (or more) than a period original (see the results of one such testing session here.).

The wooden core of the grip is bound with cord and covered with leather. The cross with its gently flaring ends, its ball pommel and florette are all hand finished and mounted to fit individual blades.
