Prior to the Norman invasion of England, the Anglo-Saxons lived in rural communities called tuns. (Tun is the source of the modern English word town.) At some point before the year 700, they decided to systematize their methods of fighting by forming a system of local self-government based on groups of ten.

Each tun divided into groups of ten families, called tithings. The elected leader of each tithing was called a tithingman. The tithings were also arranged in tens. Each group of ten tithings (or a hundred families) elected its own chief. The Anglo-Saxon word for chief was gerefa, which later became shortened to reeve. The local reeve's power as a community official and military leader extended well after the Norman conquest of England.

The Albion Reeve Sword is classified as an Oakeshott Type X. Oakeshott describes the typical Type X as a broad flat blade of medium length with a fuller running the entire length and fading out an inch or so from the point. Though the point is narrow enough for thrusting, this is principally a cutting sword, designed for use against opponents in mail armour.

The Albion Reeve Sword features a sharpened high carbon steel blade heat-treated to a fine temper in the Albion Forge Shop. The grip is of stabilized birch, wrapped with cord and covered with the highest grade vegetable-tanned calfskin. The guard and pommel are solid steel.
