Historically inspired modern Type XII sword in the style of 15th C. arming swords. Blade is 5160 spring steel hardened to HRc58-60, then selectively drawn down to HRc45-48 through the spine, shoulders and tang. Pommel and Guard are mild steel. The hilt is dismountable using a 5mm. Allen sleeve nut countersunk into the pommel. The handle is sandwiched hardwood wrapped in real linen cord then covered in brown leather in an 'antique' finish. This sword is very lively in the hand with excellent point-control and tracking. This is a very rigid sword suited to either armored or unarmored use- a good 'all arounder.'
CONUS sales only, please. I accept Paypal or a USPS M.O. Selling for $1200 delivered. Please note that the belt was not done for it so no belt. I will ship in a basic gun case for the best protection.
