This single-hand Crusade Sword is based on an authentic museum piece and 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.
This sword has been developed for the re-enactor with a 3mm wide edge blade, a rounded tip for safety, and a full tang that is peened (riveted) over the pommel.
The sword has also been constructed with a wide fuller down the full length of the blade giving it the perfect weight and balance, making it a great blade to handle.
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 has an un-polished finish replicating what the medieval swordsmith was able to achieve, and the grip is leather-covered hardwood with steel fittings.
The swords size and low weight makes this a very practical item to wear in costume and is easy, and quick to handle in combat
We will also include with this sword a set of suspension rings for the scabbard so it can be worn at an angle at you side using some belt straps (found in our listings)
