Royal Armouries Sword IX.1787

This is a replica of a mid-15th century two-handed sword. The original sword is believed to have been excavated in France, from a ford near the site of a Battle in 1453 at Castillon-la-Bataille on the Garonne. It was purchased by the Royal Armouries in 1978 and one of a group of over eighty swords discovered in the same find spot. Featuring a fish-tail pattern pommel, a straight guard with swollen terminals, and a double-edged blade having a flattened-diamond cross-section.This type of sword may have been in use during the last years of the Hundred Years' War and swords like it may also have been carried throughout the Wars of the Roses and into the early Tudor era.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 a traditional cut-out. 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.1787.
