Bold, broad, and powerful looking, the design of this 14th Century Medieval Sword with Scabbard was in response to plate-reinforced mail armour of the age, and its design does not leave a warrior wanting for power, functionality, or versatility. Classified as a Type XVI by Oakeshott, this sword is distinctive for its blade, which is broad at the base and then tapers to a narrow point. A unique fuller follows the acute tapering of the blade. This blade itself is dual hardened and hand forged in 5160 high carbon steel. All these features ensure that the blade is strong and fully capable of delivering a wicked cut or a mail piercing thrust. The mild steel guard is gently curved at the tips, while the wheel-style pommel is unique for its engraving, which translates as May You Show Honor, Integrity, And Compassion To Your Enemies And All Living Things. The sword features a full-length tang that runs through the wood and leather-wrapped handle and is peened to the wheel pommel. A wood scabbard, wrapped in leather that matches the grip, is included with this sword, serving to keep the blade safe and secure when not in use. No sword belt is included, letting you carry this sword on your own favorite belt or baldric. If you are looking for a classic workhorse, one that looks great and feels great, but more to the point, works great too, then you've found just that, as this 14th Century Medieval Sword with Scabbard brings all the power of its historical counterpart to the modern day swordsman.
