This sword has a blade typically classified as an Oakeshott Type XVIIIa, featuring a wide profile suitable for cutting while having an extremely acute point for the thrust. The grip, black leather wrapped over finely wrapped cord, is hexagonal in cross-section with a waisted area mid-way through its length.

The pommel is an Oakeshott Type V, or fishtail variant, and the cross-guard has an octagonal cross-section with flared ends and incised decorative lines.

One distinctive feature of this sword is the hollow-ground blade, making for an extremely thick mid-ridge. This produces a stiff spine throughout the blade's length, keeping the sword light and much more responsive than one might expect for a sword of this size.

See our hands-on review for more information on this sword.
