This The Irish Ring Leaf Blade Long Sword by Valiant Armoury is a highly functional Irish ring sword from their premium Craftsman Series line of swords. Lively, responsive and capable of deep and decisive cutting despite its large size, the sharpened blade of this sword has appleseed geometry edges which not only give the sword a fine edge, but a durable and damage-resistant one as well. The blade is 6150 high carbon steel which was well-tempered a 52 HRc hardness. The steel was normalized twice over before tempering to evenly distribute its carbon content to improve grain structure and optimize the blade for even and consistent results during heat treatment to ensure that the blade is evenly tempered well throughout.
The crossguard and pommel are crafted from steel and the blade is sturdily mounted into the hilt with a hot peen over the pommel for an altogether robust construction. The expertly-contoured grip is made from hardwood and then firmly bound with top quality green-dyed leather – the grip is quite long and serves to give the bearer excellent leverage to best bring the large blade to bear on the target. Included with the sword is a premium quality Valiant Armoury scabbard which is crafted from wood and expertly bound in form-fitting matching green leather. To knotted anchoring points of black leather with metal buckles fasten the scabbard to the included sword belt and allow for the belt hangers to adjust the height and angle by which the sword is slung from the belt. The belt itself is crafted from thick, durable and high quality leather and is completed with an antiqued metal buckle. The tongues of all buckles are crafted from steel for improved durability.
