The Warbrand has a blade of unsharpened high carbon steel. The thick blade tang is copper riveted between two wooden halves to form the long quadrangular grip. The grip bolster and pommel are sheathed in antiqued copper.


Though this is a large sword, in form it is akin to a glaive with a shortened haft. Though there are no surviving examples of such a medieval sword the reproduction here is based on an illustration within the 13 Century Maciejowski / Morgan Bible. There it is portrayed in unlikely hands: as a sword wielded from horseback by a helmeted knight who demonically cleaves another mounted opponent in twain despite his encompassing chainmail protection. The illustration is ghoulishly detailed, as the unfortunate combatant is complete with spilling entrails and a nearly dismembered body hanging from his still-galloping horse.

There are several other weapons depicted in the Maciejowski Bible for which no surviving examples remain and whose forms are bordering on the fantastic, but these weapons are portrayed along more standard medieval weaponry, lending credence to the possibility of their existence beyond the imagination of a medieval folio artist.
