This sword is named for a sword found on the site of the Battle of Wakefield and could be considered an example of a very common foot soldier's sidearm. Though the actual Wakefield sword differs drastically from this piece, there is an extremely similar sword to this found in the Tower of London Armouries.

A broad, single-edged blade gives it good cutting power while maintaining a sharp point for the thrust. A leather-wrapped grip, vertically recurved cross-guard forming a knuckle-bow, double-fullered slightly curved blade, and hard black leather scabbard with steel mounts define this piece's details.
