Royal Armouries Sword IX.2141

This sword was reputedly found in a peat bog together with another sword that is now in Rome. Comparable swords have also been found elsewhere across parts of Europe. This type of sword could have been carried at the beginning of the Hundred Years' War, and this particular example features several distinctive features. The subtly shaped crossguard curves towards the blade, tapering and then swelling at the terminals, and the pommel has very particular angles and facets. The hilt sits very comfortably in the hand. The broad leaf-like straight blade is of a flattened-diamond cross-section, double-edged, with a narrow fuller to reduce mass. The width swells slightly where it meets the hilt and the gracefully curved edges finish in an acute thrusting tip. The sword is quite light for its size but has a lot of blade presence and power in the hand. This replica is crafted with a hand-forged blade by an experienced, skilled blacksmith using modern 1080 high-carbon steel that is fully tempered and distally tapered for proper weight distribution. The sheath is made with a wood body and covered with leather. The tip is reinforced with a brass chape that features ornate cut-outs and an acorn tip. At the throat, the leather extends upward and covers part of the guard at the ricasso. Includes a certificate of authenticity on heavy stock, a tin of Windlass Classic Wax, and a polishing cloth. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts, the original can be seen in the Royal Armouries Collection, Object Number IX.2141.
