Sword of Homildon Hill

Sword of Homildon Hill - 501239 - Windlass Steelcrafts

Sir Henry "Hotspur" Percy

During the English-Scottish Wars, the King of England was preoccupied with the Hundred Years’ War in France. The border defense thereby fell largely to the Percy Family of Northumberland. During a border raid, the Scottish leader, Archibald IV, Earl of Douglas, was captured at a battle on Homildon Hill by the Percys, led by the younger Sir Henry "Hotspur" Percy. At risk of discontent Henry IV demanded the prisoner be turned over so that he could claim a ransom. Although Hotspur obeyed the Kings command, it planted the seed which began the long Percy Family revolt, ending years later with the Battle of Bramham Moor. Sir Henry was considered the greatest knight of the realm and held honor sacred. We have named this hand and half sword for Hotspur and that battle.

A Sword Built for a Legend

The blade on this sword is forged from a 1065 high carbon steel which was selected based on this swords geometry, ensuring a proper temper making this a sword befitting of a legendary knight. In honor of Sir Henry the fullers are engraved in Latin with the inscription “Who lives in falsehood slays his soul; whose speech is false, his honor” which is something Hotspur took to heart. The grip is made from wood and then tightly wrapped in fine black cord. The pommel and guard have treated with a dark bronze finish matching the details of the leather wrapped scabbards fittings.
