Oakeshott Type XIV

The Medieval Knight sword, or type XIV, is the quintessential sword of the medieval period. Described in Oakeshott’s typology as being relatively short, with a strong taper and sharply pointed (E. Oakeshott: “The Sword in the Age of Chivalry” p.51 ) the Medieval Knight sword is a light and well balanced weapon which facilitated a fast and agile fighting style. As full plated armor aggregated into the complex defense of the aristocratic military elite, swords too had to be improve to counter this ever evolving defense. Unlike the sluggish and belated fighting that characterize modern misconceptions of medieval combat, the Medieval Knight sword, or Type XIV, was a well balanced and deadly weapon innate with exceptional handling characteristics. While the deep seated taper delivers assertive thrusts, the impressive cutting abilities made this sword a deadly weapon of choice. The Medieval Knight sword is a beautifully crafted and engineered weapon. Exceptionally designed to deliver both cut and thrust, it is very well balanced, light and responsive. Elegantly crafted from originals at the Royal Armouries and the Wallace Collection, the medieval knight sword reflects the design and taste of the late medieval period. The detailed handle and curved guard indicates the early artistic influences, eventually explored during the Gothic period. Available with Standard or Interlaced Sword Belt Scabbard.

"Beautiful Blade, The Epitome of Traditional medieval European Swordsmanship." - (5/5)

"My husband was very happy with the sword" - (5/5)

"Fit and finish superb. Absolutely nothing negative to comment on in even close inspection. Blade, guard and pommel have more of a polish than matte finish, just an fyi, Sheath is robust as is metal tip, almost a weapon in itself. The sword: if you know the Type XIV this is that. Beautifully balanced at about 4" from guard. Blade strikes a perfect balance between robust and flexible and perhaps a little longer than typical Type XIV at 31"? I absolutely love it. Kudos, Darksword. Kudos Reliks," - (5/5)
