Classic Medieval Sword


1 in stock

Description of the Product

In his book The Sword in the Age of Chivalry, Ewart Oakeshott has categorized the medieval swords according to their special features. The book has become staple reading and his categories are widely used. This sword is an Oakeshott Type X with a Type I pommel and a Type VII crossguard. The long and wide fuller on this blade lightens the overall sword and makes it possible to deliver fast and shearing cuts, capable of cutting through the mail and padding that were worn during the period. The long guard offers good protection from an opponent's shield or blade, while the classic wheel pommel brings the sword very nicely into balance. The model for this sword dates from the 14the Century, although this type of sword was in service for a long period of time throughout all of Europe.
