 Product Description:

It is impossible to quantify the impact Ewart Oakeshott had on the modern renaissance of interest in the Medieval sword. His classification system is the common parlance in the discussion of the Medieval sword.

The inspiration for this model is a beautiful, remarkably well-preserved sword in the Wallace Collection (London) with a hollow-ground cross-section. Scholars generally have dated this sword to the 14th century, but Oakeshott in Records of the Medieval Sword argues that it is probably much earlier — between 1050 and 1150 AD.

Though the point is narrow enough for thrusting, this is principally a cutting sword, designed for use against opponents in mail armour. This is a unique design for a Crusader era sword, elegant and yet still brutally functional.
