The GUARDIAN arming sword has a fullered blade with a narrowing profile taper that ends our rev.2 widened spatulate tip. It is flexible and forgiving in the thrust. The edges are smoothly rounded for durability. The upswept crossguard is exceptionally tough having been hardened and double tempered just as the blade. The grip is tightly wrapped in cord that is sealed with resin hardener. It provides a slightly aggressive texture to the cord and feels great in and out of gloves.
Krieger Armory swords are well crafted and fully made in the USA. The high quality steel is well-tempered and even the crossguards and pommel are tempered for durability, unlike the mild steel used by the vast majority of other swordmakers. Krieger offers a 1 year zero hassle free warranty a limited lifetime tune-up (transferrable between owners) Meaning that after a full year, Krieger will replace the blade for only a fraction of the cost of a new sword. The original hilt hardware is re-used and paired with a new replacement blade. If needed, a clean up the hilt parts/ re cord wrap will also be done.
