One Handed Sword- Oakeshott XIIa, Practical Blunt- SK-B
Medieval One-Handed Sword Oakeshott Typ XIIa with Scabbard, 13th C.
Battle-Ready (Practical Blunt), SK-B
This single-handed sword is based on a sword assigned to Konrad von Thüringen (Conrad of Thuringia), Grand Master of the Teutonic Knights from 1239 to 1240 AD. The original piece, classified as a Type XIIa according to Oakeshott's typology, is on display at the Deutsches Historisches Museum (German Historical Museum) in Berlin, Germany.
This interpretation has a hardened spring steel blade tempered to a Rockwell hardness of approx. 48-50 HRC. The blade is full-tanged and peened (not screwed) to the pommel. The steel cross guard is slightly curved and the wooden grip features a carved diamond pattern and brass rings. The Medieval one-hander is capped with a thick, octagonal steel pommel which bares a cross motif on both sides. The scabbard with wooden core is covered in leather and comes complete with a carrying belt wound around it.
The blade's blunt, 2 mm thick edges and rounded tip make this high Medieval arming sword ideal for combat re-enactment, stage fighting or sparring.

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.
