The Oakeshott type XVa sword marks the transition between the one handed swords of the High Middle Ages and the hand and a half swords. Our Crusader sword is an excellent example of this type. It is similar to a normal type XV, but its tapering blade has a diamond-shaped cross section and is somewhat longer and slimmer. The hardwood grip wrapped with black leather is a little longer than a typical one handed sword, so it can also be used comfortably with two hands.

 

The pommel and the crossguard with flattened sides are decorated with crosses on both sides – the ones on the crossguard are painted red. This hand forged Crusader sword with crosses is made of carbon steel and includes a black leather scabbard with a mount and chape.
