Late Medieval One-Handed Sword with Sheath, 14th Century, Royal Armouries
Battle-Ready (Practical Blunt)

This beautiful single-handed sword is a reproduction of a late medieval one-hander dated around 1310 A.D. The original was classified as a Type XVIIIa according to Oakeshott's typology and is on display at the Royal Armouries.

This replica features a hardened spring steel blade which was tempered to a Rockwell hardness of approx. 49-51 HRC. It is full-tanged and riveted to the pommel. The steel cross guard has bent ends and the leather-wrapped wooden grip is capped with a sturdy disc-shaped steel pommel (or wheel pommel). The sword's gorgeous scabbard is crafted from vegetable tanned, dyed leather and comes complete with a carrying belt wound around it.

The blade's blunt, 2 mm thick edges and rounded tip make this medieval sword ideal for combat reenactment, stage fighting or sparring.

Please note:
Our swords referred to as battle-ready or practical are designed to suit the needs of historical re-enactment / stage fighting and to practice swordplay. The extremely brutal impact of cutting edge against cutting edge (or any other hard object) cannot be considered an appropriate use of these swords and may eventually lead to the breaking of the blade. The warranty we offer in such a case only covers material defects (e.g. hairline cracks in the blade or processing faults). It does not apply to damages resulting from a destructive or inappropriate handling of these swords. Please also bear in mind that a practical sword is basically and essentially an item subject to wear and tear.

Verwendung: Deko, Reenactment, Schaukampf
