Our single-hand Marshall Damascus Sword sets new standards of quality and authenticity in broadsword construction. The sword is based on an original, now in a British museum, used by Sir William Marshall. He served the crown faithfully under Henry II, Richard the Lionheart, and Jack Lackland. The Marshall Damascus Sword features a forged and folded Swedish powder steel blade with excellent handling characteristics. Tempered to a tough HRC 54, the blade section features a central ridged fuller and full-length distal taper. This is a tough test for the bladesmith but results in a superb combination of speed and strength. The grip is leather wrapped and laced and the guard and pommel are elegant in their functional simplicity. The scabbard is leather-covered with steel mounts. Truly a sword for the connoisseur. See the Marshall Sword (Item SH2000) for the forged monosteel version.
