Frederick IIIís sword is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful medieval swords of the later part of the middle ages. The beautifully crafted guard and pommel was inspired by the Gothic architecture of the 15th C. Made in 1440, the 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 favour among sword designers of the late medieval period. The designs were common among the swords of the nobility during the high middle ages. The Frederick III sword is hand forged in India from EN-45 Spring Steel and tempered to a Rockwell of 48-50. The Herald Series is crafted under Darksword supervision and guidelines, to create a balance between affordability and functionality. While forged in India, the Herald Series Sword handles are then completed in the Darksword Armory shop and fitted with scabbards. As with all the Herald Series Medieval Weapon collection, The Frederick III sword comes standard with a scabbard and has an optional integrated sword belt. The Frederick III sword is a fully functional sword that can be used for actual combat, and for cutting targets when ordered with optional sharpening service. The guard and pommel have meticulously been reproduced in Copper. The tapered diamond shaped grip is made of Oak, and wrapped in black leather and matching copper wire.
