This medieval Bosworth Longsword is from Windlass Steelcrafts BattleCry collection. Designed specifically to be used and made from 1065 high carbon steel with a darkened, battle-hardened finish, extra wide tang and 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. The longsword was a central weapon of the Science of Defence and an indispensable part of the chivalric art of arms for centuries. This sword is no exception. A beautifully proportioned weapon with dynamic handling qualities, it is a harmony of mass and dimension. With a long, semi-tapered diamond cross-section fitted to a round ergonomic pommel on a double-handed grip, this is a fine example of the perfection that was achieved in this popular design. Against any opposing arms or armor it was capable of quick deadly cuts as well as accurate and forceful thrusts. Aptly named for the bloody late 15th-century battle during the War of the Roses, the Bosworth is a fast and capable warsword adeptly able to execute the deadly “Mastercut” techniques so closely associated with double-handed blades of the period. With a slim handle that virtually begs to be gripped in the diverse and effective winding actions that this kind of sword ideally allowed, it features a surprisingly small heft for its size. This ebony-toned “queen of weapons” is perfectly suited to foot-combat in war, judicial duel or knightly challenge. This is a substantial and graceful weapon that will leave the wielder every confidence it could readily defend life if called upon. Discover with it just why this form of longsword was respected for centuries and celebrated against whatever it encountered.

"The entire item is a masterpiece, looks elegant and beautiful. Arrived in great shape no bends or decals, leather work is outstanding on the handle and scabbard. nice and sharp out of the box. I only wish there was a "Blunt/Stage" version of this weapon, to spar and practice more safely with. . (Hint Hint) 10/10 Would Bosworth Again." - Ivan (5/5)
"I am a martial artist and instructor. I am a weapons collector and I only collect Functional weapons. The bosworth exeeded my expectations. It is well made , sturdy and made to use. I practice with it regularly and its balance is perfect. It is a killing tool and one should be carfull when they train. Being hand made it is unique and there will never be one exactly like it. I will be buying more of the battle cry line. John Clements and Windlass hit the mark perfectly." - Adam (5/5)
