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


A reproduction of a Late Medieval One Handed Sword which is dated about 1310 A.D.
The original sword is housed in the Royal Armouries in Leeds. It is classified as a type XVllla according to Oakeshott's typology. 
The reproduction sword features a hardened spring steel blade which has been tempered to a Rockwell hardness of approx. 49-51 HRC. Fully tanged and riveted to the pommel. The ends of the steel cross guard  are curved and the leather wrapped wooden grip is capped with a strong disc shaped steel pommel (wheel pommel).
The scabbard is made from vegetable tanned dyed leather and a carrying belt is attached.
The blade has blunt 2mm thick edges and a rounded tip so therefore is ideal for combat re enactment, 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 bare in mind that a practical sword is basically and essentially an item subject to wear and tear.
