17th Century London Tower Sword, Rounded Blade, Battle Re-enactment
London Tower Sword
This battle-ready sword is based on swords developed in 17th Century in London Tower, the armoury of England. A lot of weapons were stored in the tower to help England to be prepared for any event of war. The sword originates from the period of the English Civil War (1642 – 1651) and primarily was developed to be used by the cavalry, therefore it was fitted with a longer blade. Our reconstruction has a shorter blade and works well for Landsknechts and Musketeers.
Armourclass is one of the UK's leading sword manufacturers. Quantities are extremely limited and waiting periods of 6 months or more are common.The hardened spring steel blade is forged through to the pommel and riveted at the end of the handle. Blade consists of two fullers as is usual with this type of sword. The sword is particularly well balanced with a weight of only 850g. The sword has a leather wound wooden handle and a Cross guard made from steel. The blade's point is rounded.
This sword is fully battle-ready.
