Additional information

This Gothic Longsword has a blade of unsharpened high carbon steel. The crossguard and pommel are steel. The wooden grip is wrapped in twisted steel wire on its lower half and bound in leather with textured risers beneath the leather.

The wood-core scabbard is tightly overlaid in black leather and finished with steel fittings and a pair of steel hanging rings.

This Gothic sword by Deepeeka is an agile longsword that does not feel overly heavy in the hand. Its strongly tapered blade profile is clearly intended as a thrusting sword and purpose built to split mail links and to rend the weak points in plate armor. The thin blade could be driven like a spike into the gaps in armor and then used like a crowbar to rend and literally pull apart armor before being driven home into the unfortunate fellow underneath the defense.

    Weaponry Art Indeed! I just received my Gothic Longsword, and I am thrilled with the quality. The pictures online show it’s beauty of design, but the true majesty of this weapon doesn’t fully hit you, until you hold it and swing it. The balance is incredible at exactly 3 inches from the crossguard, making the nearly 3 1/2 pounds seem light. The blade handles swift and agile with one hand, and the handle easily fits two hands if you want that. The blade is springy, without being whippy, and holds its straightness through fast motion. Yet, when you bend it out of line by as much as 30 degrees (all that was easily possible, it’s tough steel), it springs back straight and true. Although the blade is straight and well-sharpened (ordered at extra cost), there are some hammer marks and slight, small ripples or dips in the surface, as well as some slight surface-only scratches…but that is to be expected and normal in a hand-forged, hammered blade. These are not made to be mirror perfect. If that’s what you want, get a prettier, but brittle-bladed stainless steel movie replica blade or chrome-coated piece of junk, not this battle-ready beauty! The other metal parts, the pommel and crossguard, all have similar slight defects, as does the metal on the scabbard, again, signs of being of traditional hand-made quality, and not a problem. In fact, it adds to the charm, since it appears to have been in a battle or two. The sword is solidly put together, pommel, handle and crossguard are all tight. The handle is very well made and leather is well-sewn on both sword and scabbard. The leather grip with raised areas gives you a sure and unslippable grip. The scabbard firmly snugs the blade, maybe a bit too much, although it is drawable. This will probably loosen some over time, but definitely, the sword will not be falling out when tipped upside down. I also ordered the Lord of Battles 6517BK set of two hanger straps, which are well-made, good quality leather, suitable for up to a 3 inch belt, so the sword will not drag on the ground when wearing it at my next Renaissance festival…safely peace-tied, of course. My next step is to go out and buy some gourds and a pumpkin for some fun cutting practice in my back yard, that will freak out my neighbors! Can hardly wait, but I am expecting to be impressed. Thank you for providing access to what I would call a true battle-ready, museum quality piece of weaponry art. This sword once sold on other sites at over $300, so it is a real bargain as well. I have had my eye on this for 15 years, and am now a proud owner. I will do another review of it’s cutting quality after I have tried it out.

    Good sword for the price, i´m not trying to be a sword snob here, i have to say visually from a distance it looks very nice, but the cost details appear once you pay close attention, the cuttings and holes in the quillions of the guard are not perfect, the blade is not 100% symmetric, i understand this is difficult, is well balanced (about 10 cm or 10 inches from the cross) but a bit ont the heavy side i guess if you sharpen it and grind it you can make a more agile sword, but also the tempering is not the best, i hit it without much force against a simmilar 5160 sword and this one nicked a bit more, but also for the price is a beauty and comes with a very nice scabbard, i can´t complain much, it wouldn´t be my first trainning/fighting sword but definitely would buy again.
