Additional information

The Kingston Arms Tourney Arming Sword is fitted with a blunt blade of 9260 high carbon steel. With its 50 HRC temper and edges that are 2mm thick throughout, this sword is purpose-built for sport and stage combat.

The rounded, lenticular blade has a wide and deep fuller to lighten the blade whilst retaining strength. The guard and pommel are of stainless steel and the grip is crafted of wood and wrapped in tight leather. The large grip easily fits a large or armoured hand. The guard has hidden tabs fitted beneath the grip to keep it from loosening over time and the thick blade tang was hot-peened over the pommel to ensure the sword is durably constructed.

The companion scabbard is created with a core of wood and is wrapped in tight leather and finalized with a pinned steel chape.

  1. Nick A.

    Hefty blade, bulky grip, good price, okay scabbard Basically, this thing is a beater. Don’t order it expecting a nice light sword for I.33 or anything, but it is certainly sturdy. The balance is good enough to counteract the weight to an extent, but you will get fatigued pretty quickly. The grip doesn’t help with that. It’s very bulky, and after a little bit becomes very fatiguing to use. I find that every tendon in my hand hurts for days after a couple hours of use, and I’m a relatively strong person. It looks pretty good, which is a plus. It’s a great sword to wear at faires and the like. The scabbard has a nice wood core, and the chape is nice. The leather, however, is very cheap and incredibly thin. I actually think it’s pleather, rather than leather, but I’m not sure. It tears at the slightest bump or push, so be careful with it. It arrived with a slight tear in the leather, which must have happened during shipping. Basically, you get what you pay for, and this is pretty much exactly what to expect from a $180 sword. If you have at all small hands, do not get this sword, and if you fatigue easily, do not get this sword. However if you have above-average sized hands, and either are strong or want to build your strength, this is a good sword for that. If you want to fence properly with it, don’t get it. If you want to carry it around, smack a pell, or knock the lights out of your sparring partner and swing for the fences with no risk of damage, this is a sword for you. 3 stars as it’s exactly what you expect for the price.
