I've had this Army for 20!years at least or damn close. It is again not a high condition item but one of the 1st pieces I purchased that was a bit more grungy. At that time I was more of a condition collector. Things indeed change!! I've never had the desire to find the man . Now I have the time (forced upon me) I spend a few hours looking up the name more common than not probably.K. Schuster. So far a few leads but nothing solid like a war crimes kind of guy, but I'm not going very deep either. I run across this on Brian Meaderer's site! Kind of weirded me out. But very cool. May have even sprung for Brian's but I have a new purchase I am awaiting to arrive. My Schuster Alcoso

My Alcoso is worn down past any finish on the reverse crossguard. The WKC Brian is offering is minty shows very little if any hang time. My Alcoso is ex Chip Gambino. Man talk about missing people in this game he had the best stuff even at it's worst his collection was amazing. Another guy whom can't be replaced.

Great personalized piece and heck of a coincidence on the name match.. I too have an Alcoso that is not tip-top but has a sweet pers. It’s also initialed on the scabbard.. only one I have that is double pers. Best, Kevin.


It's ALL in the DETAILS!!.......
