This version of a 16th century Hand-and-a-Half Sword, is a longtime favourite. The balance of this item is excellent, providing a sword which lends itself to both single and two-handed use. These swords are crafted in much the same way as swords were made centuries ago, except that the blades are now forged from high-carbon spring steel, a resource unavailable off-the-shelf to the smiths of the old. The blade finish is un-polished, again more closely replicating what the medieval swordsmith was able to achieve. The grip is leather-covered hardwood, and the fittings are steel.
Comes with leather-covered fibreglass scabbard with steel lockets and chapes and removable suspension rings.
These swords will appeal to the re-enactor who wants a sword with the same appearance as the originals.
