While a less common pommel style than others, the floral-shaped pommel seems to have been in fashion in the 13th century. It is not a coincidence that this correlates to the apex of Chivalric mannerisms and Arthurian fashions in the culture of the medieval European nobility. Handcrafted in the Czech Republic by Wulflund, the blade is of 14260 CSN high carbon steel with a hardness of 50-52 HRC after tempering. The pommel and crossguard are steel and the grip is fitted over with supple, light brown leather.
The hilt of this sword was constructed to make it very durable and to make its components highly resistant to shifting when in use; the crossguard and pommel were welded to the tang and the tang itself was given a large peen on the bottom of the pommel. This sword is balanced in such a way that it feels very dexterous and maneuverable in the hand. The thick pommel, unobtrusive crossguard, long blade fuller and tapered blade profile all combine to make a sword with lively and capable handling properties.
Though this sword has an edge, it is not particularly sharp. If you wish to have a sharp edge we recommend utilizing our sharpening service to impart a sharper, secondary bevel edge to the blade.
