This medieval Acre Crusader Broadsword from Windlass Steelcrafts BattleCry collection is a formidable weapon of proven worth. This classic knightly sword was idea for sword and shield or sword and buckler combat whether on foot or horseback. The Acre crusader sword is a stout and fearsome blade that takes advantage of its heft, width, and center and gravity to deliver deadly slashing cuts and hacking blows as well as thrusts. One can easily imagine how this weapon shredded both mail and leather armors across Europe and Asia-minor for centuries. With a wide cross-guard of over 8" it's no sword for the softhearted or weak-spirited. Its practical cruciform hilt with single-hand grip and disc pommel was to be the functional model for countless other sword styles to follow. To know why and how the Medieval warrior became so successful you could do no better than starting with this blade. Includes a matching scabbard with belt stop, custom packaging and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process.

"It is a beautiful sword and meets my expectations. I am very happy with it." - Samuel (5/5)
"Great weapon. Love this sword. Well made , historically accurate and solid. You will need to be strong in the arm to use it with one hand with speed and accuracy." - Adam (5/5)
"Like the finish more than I thought I would. Despite Windlass's reputation for loose fitting, I was rather surprised that this one fit snug. Snug as OJ Simpson's bloody glove at first, but a few sheaths and draws, it stretched to fit quite nicely. The peen itself is rally rough, and the pommel is a little asymmetrical when you look closely. The fuller is a little uneven at the base by the crossguard, but again, only on close inspection, and I doubt it should have any effect on functionality or durability. The blade itself is pretty rigid. There is a minor rattle in the hilt assembly when I checked the POB, but only if I strike it rather hard. Haven't done any cut or durability tests, so no idea how problematic that will be, yet. No problems otherwise." - Phil (3/5)
