Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful medieval swords of the later part of the Middle Ages, the Frederick III Sword features a well-crafted guard and pommel inspired by the Gothic architecture of the 15th century. Based on the historical sword currently held at the Cluny Museum in Paris, France, our Frederick the Third replica sword has been hand forged from EN-45 high carbon spring steel and tempered to a Rockwell of 48-50. The medieval blade comes with a scabbard only. The fully functional sword can be used for actual combat and for cutting if ordered sharp. The guard and pommel have been meticulously reproduced in copper for a stunning look. The tapered, diamond-shaped grip is made from oak and then wrapped in black leather and matching copper wire.
Made in 1440, the historical sword has a crossguard shaped in a similar manner to the sword of St. Ferdinand at Seville. The highly detailed guard with longitudinal ribs running along the middle gained favor in the late medieval period, commonly appearing among the swords of the nobility during the High Middle Ages.
Please be aware that this sword does not include a sword belt.
