I own both of these swords. The sword of war is no lightweight, but it feels very reasonable for the size and length of the blade. It's not some quick, whimpy type blade which many sword companies make, this here is a Man's sword. It's light enough to be swung single handed, but probably for only one or two strokes before you find yourself slowing down. The 2121 is one of Del-Tin's most popular blades. It's like a smaller version of the Sword of War. Do not expect a feather weight though, I think mine personally weighs a bit more than the quoted 2.5 pounds. You have to expect that with hand made weapons. But mine is an excellent weapon, perhaps one of my favorites out of all the swords I own. What I personally like about Del-Tin swords is that you feel you can truely do some damage with these swords, they tend to be historical in weight rather than trying to get a really close point of balance to make it easier on the bearer. The biggest complaint I have heard is about the viking line, those swords they said are heavier than most viking type, but they are probably extremely sturdy. Scabbards are priced by whoever makes them. I make my own wooden leather covered scabbards, so it's cheap for me. About 5 in fact. Some were for swords I already sold, but I have two remaining.
