Hello,
I have for sale my new sword and scbabard.
13th cetury sword based on original sword from Royal Armouries, Leeds, UK. with very rare pommel (just one more example known and some few medieval depictions). An interesting pommel combined with a crossguard of the same style create a unique sword with such wide and dramatically narrowing blade shape.
All paremetrs are same or very close to the original sword.
Blade was forged with high carbon spring steel and hardened to 52-54HRC. Sword is sharp and fully functional. Ready to shipp.
Totall price including shipping is $1800.

Measurements:
total length 925mm
bladse length 775mm
blade width 75mm
blade thickness 4,2mm
grip 100mm
balance ca. 160mm
weight ca. 1200g

What a unique combination. Too bad I already spent all of my toy budget on your Norman sword earlier this year.

What a great looking sword. I'm surprised that the COG is so far down the blade - 160mm -- 6.3 inches. A lot of blade presence one would think.

I really desire that sword, but just bought another one so I can't . Some day I will get one of your swords.

It's surprising how many swords have a lot of blade presence. Quite a few of the 12th-14th century swords I've handled had COG of 6-8 inches in a single handed sword. Granted some had it down closer to the hilt, but it came as a surprise to me, as well as what it did to facilitate a powerful stroke.
