Single-hand sword Circa 1200-1350 AD. Blade is 5160 spring steel hardened to HRc53-54, then selectively drawn down to HRc45-48 through the shoulders and tang. Furniture is Mild Steel. The handle is sandwiched hardwood wrapped in linen cord and covered with a brown leather. The tang is reduced in section at the tip and threaded for a cylindrical nut to secure the pommel. The hilt may be dismounted with the use of a 5mm. Allen Wrench. This sword is provided with a black leather scabbard reinforced at the throat and chape.
This sword is representative of medieval single-hand swords called 'Arming Swords,' these being single-hand swords intended primarily for battlefield use as a sidearm for the armored fighter. the close balance makes this a very 'handy' sword without compromising feel or control. Should make an excellent cutting sword.

That is a GORGEOUS sword. Incredibly sleek and lethal looking. It doesn't look nearly the size the stats state it is. Well done!
