The single-hand Lionheart Sword is typical of the cruciform-hilt style of the crusading knights of Europe in the 12th and 13th centuries. The wheel pommel and slightly turned-down bow-tie guard make this a very attractive sword indeed. 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.
This sword has a sharpened edge to the blade and a full tang that is peened (riveted) over the pommel. The sword also has the perfect weight and balance making it a great blade to handle.
Comes with leather-covered fibreglass scabbard with steel lockets and chapes and removable suspension rings.
