Chateauneuf-De-Randon Bastard Sword with Sword Belt
1 in stock
Description of the Product
After the crushing defeat at Poitiers, France was unable to field a large army against the English invaders for some years and fought a long, desperate guerilla war. However, in 1380 Bertrand Du Guesclin, called the “Eagle of Brittany”, mustered a large irregular force and besieged Chateauneuf-De-Randon. It is for that tenacious old general’s last battle that we have named this beautiful bastard sword. The parts are steel with an etched pattern on the pommel. The wood grip is wrapped in marbled dark brown leather as is the decorative scabbard. The well-tempered high carbon steel blade is also etched three-quarters of the way down the fuller with a floral pattern. A brown leather sword belt and a matching scabbard are included. Circa 1380.
