Additional information

The Valiant Armoury X Angus Trim Vision Line is a collaborative effort between famed swordmakers Angus Trim and Valiant Armoury. Models will be released in limited batches. After a production run, the model will not be available again for another 12 to 24 months. There are no pre-orders for these items.

Vision creates premium, entirely made in the USA swords that meld Trim’s magnificently optimized performance blades with the hilt design, robust construction and superior leatherwork that is the hallmark of Sonny and Zach Suttles at Valiant Armoury. The final product preserves the ideal blade harmonics and balance needed for each sword to perform to its fullest potential and is a heirloom-tier sword.

The blade of the Ansbach Longsword is well suited to powerful and decisive cutting and is crafted from 5160 high carbon steel with a spring-tempered hardness of 51-53 HRc. The scent-stopper pommel provides a surprisingly convenient handhold and effectively acts as a extension to the grip that can be gripped for extra leverage.  The hot-peen construction that melds the blade and hilt together at the pommel gives this sword a very strong and lasting hilt construction. The crossguard and pommel are crafted from steel with an antiqued finish and the grip is carved from Poplar and tightly bound in leather to complete the sword.

The matching scabbard for the Ansbach is a wood-core scabbard that is wrapped in top-grain leather and paired with a sword belt of thick leather. The chape and other metal fittings are of metal and the buckles are reinforced with steel tongues for durability.

    This is exactly the type of craftsmanship that we’ve come to expect from both Angus Trim and Valiant. Each is successful in their own right, and I’ve been consistently impressed with their solo offerings (pre-owned items, special orders, standard pieces, etc.) for many years now.
    It takes self awareness and humility, though, to do what they did here. Valiant knows that their scabbards, hilts, and belts are top tier. Their blades are excellent, but not top tier. Angus Trim blades are 100% top tier, while their hilts are more functionally simple.
    So when you take a gorgeously designed and crafted Angus Trim Type XVIa blade and then go all out on the artistry factor with super high-end oxblood leather scabbard and belt by Valiant….you get what you pay for.
    The added elements of these being rare items (limited runs only) and available immediately through KoA……earns this sword my highest possible recommendation. Regardless of your intended use for it, be it cutting practice or display, it is up to the task. 10 out of 10.
