This Pre-Owned Windlass Sword of Homildon Hill has a sharpened blade in good condition with a moderate amount of light scratches and scuffs. The entirety of the hilt is in good condition save for one quillon end which is slightly bent. Scabbard has some scratches and small cosmetic blemishes but is in good condition overall.

During the English-Scottish Wars, the King of England was preoccupied with the Hundred Years War in France. The border defense thereby fell largely to the Percy Family of North Umberland. During a border raid, the Scottish leader, Archibald IV, Earl of Douglas, was captured at a battle on Homildon Hill by the Percys, led by the younger Sir Henry 'Hotspur' Percy. Henry IV demanded the prisoner so he could collect the ransom himself. This demand, though obeyed, was the seed that began the long Percy Family revolt that ended years later with the Battle of Bramham Moor. Hotspur was considered the greatest knight of the realm and held honor sacred.

This hand and half sword is named for 'Hotspur' and that battle. The fullers are engraved in Latin with the inscription 'Who lives in falsehood slays his soul; whose speech is false, his honor', something Hotspur took to heart. The blade is made of well-tempered high carbon steel, the wood grip is wrapped in fine black cord and the detailed parts have a dark bronze finish. Includes a leather wrapped scabbard with matching bronze fittings.
