The Celts were brave warriors, dating as early as 500 BC fighting with strength and fury. The close combat sword was the chosen weapon in battle, as its flared blade possessed a strong and deadly sharp edge that could be wielded quickly with great power. The solid brass hand poured crescent moon guard and pommel reflect the Celts worship to the heavens. Each flared blade is hand forged of high carbon steel which replicates the materials as close as possible to the period. The functional Celtic short sword possesses all the attributes needed for a true Celtic warrior to achieve glory and victory in battle! Heavy duty leather sheath for sword is included. From Ritter Steel.
