Unlike many Bastard Swords on the market this one by Michael ‘’Tinker’’ Pearce is so well balanced that it can be ably and easily used single-handedly if needed. In fact, the single-handed performance abilities of this long-handled sword actually exceed many of the production arming swords on the market!

The sharpened blade is 5160 high carbon steel which was Marquenched and tempered to a final HRc 52 hardness. The blade shoulder and tang were softened to a HRc 45 - 48 hardness to give then blade more shock resistance and durability in and around the hilt. The blade is durably mounted into the hilt and anchored into the pommel with a 3/8’’ countersunk nut. The hilt has also been epoxied for a robust permanent construction.

The hilt furniture is steel and the hardwood grip is overlaid in tight leather. Included is a companion scabbard of wood which is bound in leather.

’’Swords of this type were devised to counter the increasing appearance of plate armor starting in the late 13th century; swords could not cut through the plate, so stiffer blades with dagger-like points were needed to stab through the mail between plates. This sword is appropriate to the late 14th-15th C. This sword specialized for thrusting, but should be capable of cutting trials in skilled hands.’’ - Michael ‘’Tinker’’ Pearce
