This functional longsword sword, circa 1400, has great length giving it both reach and power. As the length increased the velocity increased substantially. However, with the addition of the long ricasso, the sword became even more formidable. The ricasso allowed the sword to be gripped past the guard, thus shortening the sword and allowing it to be used as short spear. This made a thrust more solid since the blade is held securely at two separate points. Our version of this sword is as formidable weapon as the originals. The blade is high carbon steel, tempered to a tough spring, the grip is ridged wood, wrapped with leather, and the pommel and guard are steel. Comes complete with leather scabbard. This is an interesting sword type that belongs in all collections of swords. Comes complete with leather scabbard. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.

"very good quality item, item description was exact, good price" -Michael (5/5)
"The hilt rattles and blade has a bit too much spring" -Jeremy (3/5)
Reliks Response - This piece has a threaded button on the pommel. If you give that a clock-wise turn it will take out the rattle and tighten everything back up.
"Sword is well made and arrived in excellent condition. The packaging caused some oil to get on the outside of the sheath and on the handle." -Kris (5/5)
Reliks Response - a soft cloth will easily remove it. the oil is there to protect the blade.
