Agile and Effective Fighting Blade

Filling an under served niche in available swords today, the Agincourt hand-and-half sword from Windlass Steelcrafts Battlecry collection is a slender, light, quick weapon well-suited to facing armoured or unarmoured adversaries. This is an agile weapon whose length and weight make it highly effective on its own in either one or two-handed fighting. But it’s equally dangerous when paired with a buckler or even a larger shield. Combining versatility with utility, the dexterity and lightness of the Agincourt betrays a dangerous fighting blade of respected martial utility. One could easily envision English long-bowmen and knights alike wielding this blackened blade on the fields of the famous and disastrous battle honoured in the naming of this sword.

How They are Made

With a 1065 high carbon steel blued patina, it’s well protected from the frequent rust spots and stains that occur so often from everyday practice and exposure to the elements. The battle-hardened finish had an extra wide tang and is tempering to a low 50's RC. This pre-sharpened blade has gone through rigorous testing. The hands-on nature of the manufacturing by master smiths makes this line unique. 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.

How They Excel

The term hand-and-a-half is more of modern designation for a range of sword types that featured tapered blades longer than the common shorter arming swords of the time but without the double-hand grips of larger heavier war-swords. Many different swords fall into this category and many of them are as maneuverable as they are surprisingly sturdy. In full armor a heavy sword is no advantage and a narrow point on a slimmer blade is ideal for getting into the vulnerable spots on another armoured combatant. At the same time, the advantage of having a faster weapon with a extended grip that could still be adroitly handled with both hands, provided knights and men-at-arms alike with a resourceful option. A sword like this also deftly employs the blade-gripping techniques called half-swording that make up such a large part of the authentic fighting methods.

"Love the sword, but being left-handed, I need a scabbard on my right hip..."


L - Verified Buyer


"Excellent quality for the price, cut inch thick hemp stalks with no warping of the blade or chipping to be seen. The additional scabbard and belt frog was a very nice touch."


K - Verified Buyer


"The sword is in great condition, and handles beautifully. A perfect choice for women or people of smaller stature, as it is light and doesn't need a lot of strength to cut targets. A little discoloration on the pommel where the finish wasn't complete, but only marks the sword as a unique piece that was handcrafted."


A - Verified Buyer


"Well made and finished. The sword fits like it was made for me. The POB is 2.5" from the cross-guard and the leather wrap on the handle is tight and well stitched. The pommel has been peened and is tight. The sheath is made of leather with metal tip and throat. The sheath is NOT wood lined. There is a small scratch down to bare metal on the tip, but it is not a big deal. The frog / suspension is made of quality leather and well stitched and rivited. It is a simple and ingenious design that appears to work well with any belt. Including my military web belt. This is for left hip wear as it is for a right hand draw."


C - Verified Buyer


"The sword exceeded expectations, both in terms of building materials and quality of craftsmanship. Reliks appears to be a premier online weapons and armour shop, very much on the same level as other, larger competitors like ********. If Canadian, this is your best and safest bet for quality arms. Will definitely shop here again!"
