This straight, cruciform-like late 13th Century Medieval Sword has a unique geometric pommel – it seems to have been a relatively rare form and whether it is intended as a decorative style or had a more practical purpose is likely to remain open to speculation. Whatever the intention, this geometric form creates many points on the pommel that could aid in directing concussive force in a pommel strike. The straight form the blade and crossguard lend the blade a knightly personality and the wire-wrapped grip is both practical and aesthetically appealing.
The late 13th Century Sword has an unsharpened blade of tempered Chrome-Vanadium steel with a hardness of 50 HRC. The crossguard and pommel are of steel.
