Pierced Cross Fittings

During the height of plate armour, this narrow, sharply-pointed sword was one of the most successful in finding chinks in armour or to even “punch through” if necessary. This long slender blade is double-edged and finely tapered. Possessing enough breadth to cut, the Shrewsbury is equally strong to thrust. Made by the master craftsmen at Windlass Steelcrafts, the sword has been forged and replicated from 1065 high carbon steel, which has strong edge-holding capabilities. The steel pommel is fig shaped and has been beautifully faceted. This sword has been named after the famous battlefield where Prince Hal (later Henry V of England) defeated Percy Hotspur in 1403 and is noted by the pierced crosses in the steel guard. This sword ships complete with a real leather scabbard, with both scallops and a pierced cross on its fittings, as well as a belt stop.

S - Verified Buyer

"This was my favorite sword, many years ago when I was involved with the SCA, but it was lost several years ago. I'd been looking around for a replacement now that I have a fairly decent income again, and kept finding "out of stock" and "discontinued" at the various shops I had dealt with in the past. I was delighted to find you still had some. It's like reclaiming a bit of myself. Thank you." - 09/26/2022
