Additional information

This Late Medieval Sword by Ronin Katana has a sharp blade fashioned from 1075 high carbon steel; it is fitted through the hilt and peened over the pommel to create an overall robust hilt construction. The crossguard and pommel are stainless steel and the grip is cord over a wood core with a final fitted leather overwrap.

The sword is paired with a wooden scabbard which is bound in leather and fitted with a metal chape. Interwoven and knotted onto the scabbard is an all-leather sword belt.

This impressively proportioned longsword is modeled after the Harriet Dean sword and its sibling, the Bashford Dean sword. Both of these early Type XVIIIb 15th century swords were part of the famed Alexandria Arsenal collection and were well taken care of throughout the centuries because they were tribute or war prizes for the Mamelukes. Ronins recreation of this sword type does a good job of approaching the dimensions of the originals. Its overall length and blade length is quite close to the Bashford Dean sword in the Metropolitan Museum of NY and its weight is quite commensurate (Bashford Dean sword is 3 lbs 10 oz)

    Sword is a lot of fun, it’s a very heavy chopper with the balance being very blade heavy. The pommel and handguard feel dainty in comparison to the blade. The edge geometry seemed good to me, the edge wasn’t good from the factory but 20 minutes on a sharpener and it was good to go. The scabbard is nice, feels sturdy. The packaging not that great, with the skinny and pointy crossguard poking through both sides of the box including the scabbard. But other than some scuffs and scrapes it wasn’t any worse for wear. The little bend in the crossguard on mine wasn’t even, with one side making a full 90-degree bend and the other looking like they didn’t finish or it broke haha. But if you’re looking for a beasty chopper for not too crazy of a price point seems like it’s pretty good. I haven’t used it on anything tougher than tatami yet, so I don’t know how well it will hold up but it seems like it’s pretty tough.

    I love this sword. It is well made, sharp. I did some testing on this and discovered that the guard and pommel are NOT steel. They are most probably zinc? Or some other alloy. They are non-magnetic. This might cause some of the blade-heavy issue this sword has. If they guard were a bit beefier and made of steel and the pommel made of steel, this would go a long way to helping the POB. However for the price this is not a bad sword at all.
