The Bayeux is named for the famous Tapestry depicting the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. Swords akin to the one on offer here from Albion are displayed on the Bayeux Tapestry. It has a broad flat blade of medium length with a fuller running the entire length and fading out an inch or so from the point. Though the point is narrow enough for thrusting, this is principally a cutting sword, designed for use against opponents in mail armour. This is a classic design for Norman or Early Crusader era sword, simple yet elegant and brutal.

The Bayeux has a hand-ground high carbon steel blade that is tempered for flexibility and edge retention. The crossguard and pommel are cast from mild steel. The grip is stabilized birch wood, cord-wrapped and fitted over with tight leather.

The sword grip comes in a selection of colors, please select an option below.
