This sword is a recreation of one of the more finely preserved examples of a knightly arming sword from the last half of the 14th century and it was surely a masterfully crafted weapon in its time and an everyday companion to a professional warrior. The original sword is now part of the Wallace Collection, and is a classic example of a type XV sword; it is equally likely to have been an English or a French sword and could very well have participated in the Hundred Years War.
The reproduction from Deepeeka captures the acutely tapered blade of this sword and its diamond cross-section which stiffens the blade for thrusting. Though from an age when swords were increasingly more optimized for thrusting, the sword retains enough width to cut decisively. This tapered form also serves to shift the balance of blade mass toward the base of the blade which aids greatly in making the sword agile, maneuverable and quick to point and strike.
The crossguard and pommel are fashioned from steel and the blade is solidly mounted into the hilt with a robust peen over the peen block of the pommel. The grip is wood with a tightly-stitched overlay of leather with prominent risers beneath to give a sure and confident grip. The sword is paired with a wooden scabbard which is wrapped in fitted vegetable-tanned leather of good quality.
