By the 14th century, the classical view of the knights sword took shape in the arming sword. And this Arming Sword with Scabbard demonstrates exactly why, as its pronounced taper and tip make this blade a quick yet devastating weapon. This sword represents the change in warfare during the 14th century, when armor improved to such a point that swords had to change or be cast aside in favor of weapons that could penetrate plates with more ease. This style of blade finds a content medium, combining maximum thrusting power, a narrow point for slipping through armour defenses, and an effective cutting ability. This sword is a Type XVIII (of Oakeshott typology), which means its blade gradually tapers to a fine tip and it has a four-sided, flattened diamond cross section. The blade is dual hardened and forged entirely from 5160 high carbon steel. Highly effective, the guard features long, mild steel quillons with tips that curve upwards towards the blade. The wheel pommel is a classic addition that helps counterbalance the blades weight. The hilt is made of wood scales secured around a full-length tang, which is peened to the pommel, and is finished with leather wrapping for a solid and effective hold. The sword comes complete with a matching scabbard, perfect for containing the blade and keeping it safe when not in use. No sword belt is included, so you can easily attach it to your own favorite belt or baldric. You might say that this Arming Sword with Scabbard earned its name, historically, by being so versatile and so effective that it became an essential aspect of almost every knights equipment.

Please be aware that this sword is hand-forged, and as such, its finish and its overall measurements can vary slightly from what is shown here. Also, be aware that this sword is made to be practical, tough, and hardy, and its finish, being hammered and hand-forged, can sometimes feature marks from the forging process.
