Additional information

The Brighton is a premium quality Craftsman Series sword from Valiant Armoury which is made entirely in the USA and it comes in a complete package with an excellent quality scabbard, suspension and sword belt.The Brighton is one of the most nimble and responsive single-handed medieval swords available on the market and though light and easy to wield its high quality cut-and-thrust blade give it excellent practical cutting and piercing ability. This is a fine sword for a smaller or younger person, or for someone who desires a riding sword with supremely nimble handling characteristics which can strike, pivot and point with ease.

The blade is fashioned from 6150 high carbon steel and well-tempered. It is mounted and anchored into the hilt with a durable and permanent hot-peen assembly. The guard and pommel are steel and the well-contoured grip is wood which is bound in dark green leather.

The premium scabbard is crafted from wood which is tightly wrapped in dark green leather binding which is lavishly embossed with filigree detailing. The chape is stainless steel and the etched bands with matching decor are of steel. Fitted to these bands are two buckled hangers of leather and the buckles are antiqued metal with steel tongues. The sword comes with a sword belt which can be adjusted with its buckle and like the scabbard this high quality leather belt is thoroughly embossed with filigree decor.

The sword belt and scabbard hangers are arranged to allow for the sword to be worn at an angle or vertical depending upon preference. A third hanger band even allows for more angling and placement options when worn at an angle.

    Just got this sword today. Right out of the box, its amazing.

    Almost as pictured, just slightly darker green with some variation between the grip and scabbard, and different chape. The belt is much lighter, though it does seem a bit dried out, so I’m sure after some conditioner and oil the color will be about the same.

    The belt system raises some questions as to how it should be rigged. I thought the main body of the belt would attach to the front buckle, but the main belt is much thicker. Having a loose hanging strap or buckle looks too odd.

    As for construction, it looks amazing. Built smaller and slimmer than I had expected, extremely light and nimble. Definitely a one handed sword. The pommel design lends itself well to a second hand with its curved shape, however the points on mine are a bit sharp.

    I do have a few complaints though. Mine came with a very simple V chape on the end, not like the much nicer one pictured. Which for the price paid, is quite a complaint. Also, the grip and scabbard leathers are glued, not stitched. Which seems a bit cheap for the price paid. Valiant Armory is supposed to be on the upper end of the ratings from what I had read.

    – Light weight
    – Well made construction

    – Different parts than advertised
    – Overly complex belt setup
