The Tinker Great Sword of War is designed purely as a cutting sword and, weighing in at a little less than four pounds, it is built to excel on heavy targets. The 11 inch grip provides excellent leverage and static and dynamic balance.
The Blunt Trainer longsword features nearly identical handling of its sharp companion, but with thick edges (2mm) and a rounded tip for safe sparring practice. Tinker Pearce has developed matching longswords to satisfy any sword need.
This Tinker Pearce Sharp Bastard Sword is based on the Oakeshott Type XVIIIA and is designed to perform identically in the hand to the blunt version. The sharp blade is diamond-sectioned throughout its length.
The Tinker Pearce Sharp Early Medieval Sword is a single-hand Oakeshott Type XII piece. The sharp blade is fullered for about two thirds of its length with a flattened diamond section out towards the tip.
While not a direct copy of any particular sword, the Viking sword design was inspired by historical examples from the 9th Century, most notably finds from the area around Trondheim, Norway, where the circular hilt was popular.
Tinker Pearce has developed these matching longswords to satisfy the need of every Western Martial Arts practitioner and sword enthusiast, to have a matching set of sharp and blunt swords for cutting and safe training practice.
