‘’The Wars of the Roses’’ describes a violent, turbulent era in English history. A civil war that raged sporadically between the English Houses of Lancaster and York roughly between the years of 1455 to 1487, over nothing less than the Crown of England.

Many legendary battles (the Ist and 2nd Battles of St. Albans, Northampton, Towton, and finally Bosworth) and many famous and infamous characters (Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick, known as “The Kingmaker;” Richard III; Henry Tudor; and the wily Margaret of Anjou) all put their stamp on this tumultuous time period. Both Houses lost many of their noble members during that bloody 30 year period.

The struggle ended finally with the victory of the Lancastrian Earl of Richmond, Henry Tudor, who defeated the Yorkist King Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth. Henry assumed the crown of England as Henry VII and founded the House of Tudor, which ruled England and Wales for the next 117 years.

The Albion Lancaster, classified by is one of the types of swords you would have found on those famous battlefields. Our Lancaster would be right at home in the early years of the conflict, and would have still seen use towards the end. Swords of this type were developed to deliver deep thrusts with ease. Reaching the height of popularity in the mid and late 14th Century, it still saw use in the 15th Century.

The shape of the blade results in a point that is acute, robust and very agile, and allows effective cutting where the blade broadens. By varying the proportions in width and thickness, blades of this type can have rather different character. Some are narrow and thick, resulting in very rigid and stout thrusting swords, while other blades are wider and thinner in proportion, with more emphasis on the edge and the cutting aspect of the sword.

This blade with its broad base, slim section and strong point it becomes a true ''cut & thrust'' sword. The edge will easily cut softer mediums, while the rigid point can meet such targets that are resilient against the edge of a sword. Handy in size, and with a very lively heft (perhaps the quickest in all the NG line up) it is a practical and lethal fighting sword well suited for both melee and self defense. It offers a precise and fluid control of point and edge and seems eager to follow the intent of the swordsman.

The Lancaster has a hand ground high carbon steel blade that 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.
