This Type XVIa Bastard Sword by Michael ‘’Tinker’’ Pearce has a blade crafted from 5160 high carbon spring steel which has been tempered to a final hardness of HRc 52. In its cross section the blade has a lenticular base that runs the length of the fuller - at the termination of the fuller the blade takes on a flattened diamond-cross section. This blade geometry eliminates excess weight in the base of the blade and a flattened diamond profile imparts rigidity into the spine of the blade to make it more optimized for thrusting - this flattened profile also serves to ensure that the center ridge minimizes the drag on the blade as it passes through a target. This compromise between the qualities needed for slicing and piercing make this sword blade an excellent cut-and-thrust workhorse of a sword.

The crossguard and pommel are mild steel and the blade is securely fitted into the hilt with a permanent sunken nut in the pommel. The hardwood grip was bound in tightly wrapped linen cord and finished with a brown leather overwrap. Included with the sword is a wood-core scabbard which is finished with an exterior wrap of leather.

’’The sword is an Oakeshott's Type XVIa, designed for cut-and-thrust work. The blade is broad enough for excellent cutting power, but is rigid enough to thrust through mail. It light enough and balanced for one-handed use, but has a long hilt for use with two hands. In the style of swords of the 14th-15th century.’’ - Michael ‘’Tinker’’ Pearce
