The Devils Edge Celtic Sword is a robustly constructed full-tang leaf-blade sword designed for deep-slicing and decisive chopping. This ancient and elongated blade design both widens and flattens the main cutting portion of the blade to give it a wide and thin plane which both cuts into and separates a target as it passes through it with minimal drag due to its flattened cross section. A comparably thick base of the blade imparts durability and brings some mass closer to the hilt to ensure it maintains a favorably agile and responsive balance for improved handling.
The sharp blade is crafted from high carbon steel and the blade has a thick, full tang which is clearly visible within the composite grip to ensure that there can be doubt as to the solid construction of this hilt design. The guard and pommel are fashioned from brass and the grip is completed with polished halves of wood which have been triple-riveted into the tang with brass. Included with the sword is a durable leather sheath with stitched construction.
This sword is an excellent choice for those who wish to experience the strong cutting and cleaving power of ancient leaf-blade swords in a durable and practical design which comes pre-sharpened and ready for use. Swords such as this could compensate for their moderate length by maximizing the cutting power of the blade itself with a design that could strike with substantially greater force than a blade with a narrower profile. It is an overall efficient and practical design perfectly suited to the needs of warriors and the materials technology of antiquity. It is now reproduced here in pure modern steel coupled with one of the most durable hilt construction types possible.
This blade is made of stainless steel, not 1070 steel as advertised. The sword looks great, but why would you try to pass it off as a better steel? Never a good move to lie to your customers in my opinion.

Hi James –
The site is very specific about which version of the Devil’s Edge is available and how to select the correct one. We do offer both. For Devil’s Edge, we randomly test chemical composition at an independent lab during the year. Please go to our steel certification program page on the site!
