Description of the Product

It must have been a fearsome sight having this huge sword coming at you across the battlefield. This particular sword is a copy of number IV-1787 in the Royal Armouries in England. Though big, it is beautifully balanced for two handed use, allowing for sweeping cuts, and it must have swept away all in its path. The tip of a long sword moves faster than that of a shorter one, and thus cuts well although weighing less than the tip of a sword that has been designed mainly for slashing. The long grip is wood covered in leather and the parts are steel, making for a truly impressive sword. Includes scabbard. Circa 1450.
