If you wish to fight in late medieval style, you should have a matching blade on hand like the Comte de Nieuwekerke Arming Sword. Made from EN45 high-carbon steel, this functional sword features a design based on an original from the late 14th century. The original is an example of an Oakeshott type XV sword, a style common during the Hundred Years War with both the French and English.
To begin with, this sword features a sharply tapered, double-edged blade with unsharpened edges. Furthermore, it has a diamond cross-section, which allows for thrusting. Its tapered shape shifts the balance towards the base for agile maneuvering. The sword continues with a curved crossguard. This steel guard curves towards the blade.
Then, the hilt has a leather-wrapped grip. There are four ridges on the wooden grip for a more secure grasp. The hilt ends with a disk-shaped steel pommel. The peened pommel secures the full-tang blade to the hilt.
Finally, this sword comes with a wooden scabbard. Brown vegetable-tanned leather covers the scabbard. This medieval sword is ideal for wielding at a historical reenactment. It also makes a great addition to a weaponry collection.
