This Balaur Arms longsword has a classic lenticular cross section and a long-fullered design typical of many classic medieval swords of the 13th - 14th century. It is a Type XIIa blade designed to reduce much of a blade’s unnecessary weight whilst giving it a tapered profile better suited for contending with the improved armor of the time over earlier swords. The forged blade is 5160 high carbon steel with a finished spring temper and a hardness of 56-58 HRc. The sword is fitted to the hilt with a solid peen of the tang over the pommel. Adding to its overall durability is the shape of the rectangular tang - a form which is substantially less likely to turn or shift in the grip than a round tang. The crossguard and pommel are steel and the grip is seasoned teak wood which has been bound in tight leather.

The sword is paired with a wooden scabbard of seasoned teak which is wrapped in leather and finished with a steel chape.

Please Note: The older design of this sword (as seen in the video) has an integrated sword belt. The new version has omitted this integrated sword belt for a bare scabbard which can be used for a wider variety of mounting systems for wear which are applicable to a wider range of body types.
