This Arms & Armor Black Prince sword has a sharpened 6150 high carbon steel blade tempered to a hardness of 50 HRC. The guard and pommel are of steel and the grip is overlaid with leather. The tight leather grip is dyed a mottled dark brown.


This sword is a replica of the original sword that is thought to be the blade carried by Edward the Black Prince. Though the original went missing in the English Civil War, it re-emerged in the 20th century. Ewart Oakeshott himself studied the blade and found its steel, patination and a royal cutler’s makers mark to be a match to the armor of the Black Prince kept among his other funerary achievements in Canterbury Cathedral. Most notably the blade was a match for the Black Prince’s scabbard.

Unfortunately Canterbury Cathedral was not swayed by Oakeshott’s research, and the sword of the Black Prince yet lies apart from his other funerary items in a private collection.
