GO Gen1 Back In Stock

Post by Big Lazy » Mon Jan 02, 2006 1:13 am

Just checking out the 'Newly Added Items' section and it seems B-UK have the GO Gen1 Back In Stock (H)

http://www.blades-uk.com/large_pic.php?product_id=414

At £500 its more expensive than the Gen2 but well worth it. Here's hoping Loz can get some Gen1 Waki's in too :D

How long you had your Gen2 for? Loz is a decent chap, if you've not had it long he may allow you to send yours back and have the Gen1 instead, if you pay the £115 extra that is (H) Drop him an email and see what he says

I got it cheaper than the listed price, thanks to the price promise.
Also, don't think I could afford it now, what with the Helm I'm buying, and something from Albion.
Besides, I've kinda grown fond of this GO2 in the past few days...Got it on Friday.

Having a look on some other sword sites and this other site has a picture of the Gen 1 and then a price tag of £385, find it a bit odd that it's so much cheaper, wonder if it is actually the Gen 1 that you get...

Doesn't say it's a sale, but yeah seems a bit dodgy as i'm guessing they are pretty hard to get hold of which is why BUK has them priced fairly high compared to the Gen 2. They are beautiful swords though.

Well that cleared that one up could probably sue them though because there doeasn't seem to be a disclaimer...controversial...
