English 15th Century Long Sword

This is a reproduction of an early 15th century knightly longsword, believed to have been found in the River Thames before finding its way into the Tower of London Collection. The original hand-and-a-half sword dates to around 1400-1430 and can be seen in the Royal Armouries Collection, Object Number IX.16. This is the type of sword that English knights would have carried at the Battle of Agincourt.
The stiff and acutely-tapered blade ends in a robust but slender point. This kind of sword was used in one or two hands. In combat, the blade could also be gripped in half swording, to better drive the point into the gaps of an armoured opponent, and also to use the crossguard and pommel for wrestling and striking.
The blade of this sword has three transitions, from a hollow-ground blunt ricasso next to the guard, to a hexagonal cross-section, and finally to the flattened diamond section point. A relatively nimble sword, but with more blade presence than you might expect.

This replica is crafted with a hand-forged blade by a skilled blacksmith using modern 1080 high-carbon steel that is fully tempered and distally tapered for proper weight distribution.

The scabbard is made with a wooden core and covered with leather. The tip is reinforced with a brass chape that features a traditional cut-out. At the throat, the leather extends upward and covers part of the guard at the ricasso.

Includes a certificate of authenticity and a polishing cloth.
