Help

This sword is a bridge between the older, more parallel medieval swords and the later, tapered cut-and-thrust blades of the later middle ages. Popular in this transitory arms period of 1200-1350, this sword is the beginning of the compromise between cutting and thrusting. The straight guard is a hold-over of the older blades of its Norman-esque ancestry, but the brazil-nut pommel and tapering blade are a glimpse into the future of sword design. Tapering not only improved the armor-piercing ability of a blade in a thrust, but it also often improved balance by reducing weight at the tip.

The blade is of 1060 high carbon steel tempered to a Rockwell hardness of 53. The blade is fitted through a steel guard and pommel and is peened for strength. The grip is wood and tightly wrapped and stitched over with brown leather. The sword comes with a wood-core scabbard, wrapped in form-fitting brown leather with an integrated sword belt.
