Aesthetically pleasing is a great way to describe this sword, but do not think for a second that this sword is just a wall-hanger. As nice as this Black Death Sword with Scabbard looks, it is also fully functional and battle-ready.Based heavily on a gothic sword design of the 15h century, this sword features the best of both fantasy and history, with fine detailing that is worthy of a ranking knight or high noble as well as the solid strength that any warrior would want in a sword. The blade is dual hardened and hand forged in 5160 high carbon steel. The profile taper of the blade provides plenty of width for slashing and impact, as well as an acute point for delivering devastating mail and plate piercing thrusts. The hilt is long enough to accommodate two hands with ease, while the mild steel guard has a distinctive and unique form with two gently curved quillons that have sharp recurves at their edges. The sword also features a full-length tang that is peened to the unique, forked pommel. This gothic sword comes with a handsome wood scabbard wrapped in black leather that perfectly accents the dark elegance of the overall design and, of course, keeps the blade safe when not in use. This sword does not come with a sword belt, letting you wear it on your own favorite belt or baldric, or display it with ease. The option for powerful two-handed wielding and the well-designed blade make this sword a lethal instrument against foes both armoured and unarmoured. The unique design ensures this Black Death Sword with Scabbard is unforgettable, whether it is wielded against you, placed into your hands, or displayed on a wall in you or your hosts den.
