This longsword is based on a fine 15th Century example kept within the collection of the National Museum of Medieval Art in Paris. The blade is forged from tempered C60 high carbon steel (a steel with properties similar to 1060 high carbon steel) and has a diamond cross section to give it a good compromise between the cut and thrust. The robust crossguard and pommel are crafted from blued steel and the wooden grip is carefully bound in tightly-fitted red leather. A leather rainguard chape on the guard completes the hilt and the blade is solidly anchored into the hilt with a peen over the pommel.
The sword is matched with a wood-core scabbard which is wrapped in matched leather with stitched construction. Its locket and chape are made from matched blued steel.
