This option changes the standard cylindrical grip of the Constable for a waisted grip that is half-wrapped in wire in the bottom half.

Albion named this sword after Bertrand du Guesclin (1320-1380), Constable of France from 1370 to 1380. He is considered one of the greatest French soldiers of his time and one of the important figures of the Hundred Years' War (1337-1453).

The title constable was usually held by a courtier in charge of keeping the horses of his lord, coming from the Latin ''comes stabulari'' (count of the stables). The office 'constable' was often held by the person in charge of the defence of a castle -- even today, there is a Constable of the Tower of London. In some countries, such as France, this title developed into a high military rank.

This is a short and handy hand-and-a-half sword with a very stiff blade, primarily for thrusting, but pretty decent for cutting as well. When you handle these swords they are very ready in your hand. Because the tip is so narrow, the spine can be made thick without making the blade overly heavy - this makes the blade tip stiff and effective at thrusting.

The Constable has a hand ground high carbon steel blade is tempered for flexibility and edge retention. The crossguard and pommel are cast from mild steel. The grip is stabilized birch wood, cord-wrapped and fitted over with tight leather.

The sword grip comes in a selection of colors, please select an option below.

Please Note: This entry is for a Constable sword with a waisted grip instead of a standard cylindrical grip. The bottom half of the grip is wrapped in wire.
