This was an impulse buy for a friend who is no longer. It was used once in one cutting competition at the Longpointe Competition in Baltimore in July 2017. It has been polished and is kept in a smoke free and humidity controlled environment. It is in excellent condition. I paid $1085.00 for the sword and $750 for the scabbard, by Mike Sigman. I have attempted to upload pics, but not sure it was successful. please email me for pics and info at awaken.grace@gmail.com. I'm a real person, just trying to recover my losses, check me out at www.alligrace.com if need be. Big Grin

When seeing original swords of war from the 13th and 14th C., one is always impressed by their powerful presence. A massive size combines with harmonic proportions, lending them a majestic grace. Despite being rather massive they have such a balance that they could be wielded in one hand, although two-handed use was probably preferred.

Albionís Baron Type XIIa has a blade shaped to allow certain stiffness for the thrust while being primarily dedicated to slashing and cleaving. The powerful mass of this sword is well managed by a careful distribution of mass together with a long grip and results in very good handling characteristics. This is a sword for the battlefield but can be used in the fencing techniques of Liechtenauer, although the wide and acutely sharp blade does not lend itself too well for half-swording. It is a classic example of the knightly battlefield longsword of the late 13th and early 14th centuries.

The hand ground high carbon steel blade is tempered for flexibility and edge retention. The crossguard and pommel are cast from mild steel. The grip is cord-wrapped wood fitted over with tight leather.

It was used once at Longpoint in 2017 to cut reeds. It is kept in a humidy controled, smoke free environment and has been kept clean and polished. It is like new. Hate to sell, but need the money.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

The Baron
Limited Edition Medieval War Sword
(Oakeshott Type XIIa)

When seeing original swords of war from the 13th and 14th C., one is always impressed by their powerful presence. A massive size combines with harmonic proportions, lending them a majestic grace.

This visual impact follows through in their handling: a strong authority combined with a smooth control of edge and point. Two major types of these battlefield weapons are classified as Oakeshott type XIIa ad XIIIa. They generally have a blade length of 85-95 cm, when in hand and a half size. Their grips give ample room for two hands.

Despite being rather massive they have such a balance that they could be wielded in one hand, although two-handed use was probably preferred.

Those weapons classified by modern students of arms as Oakeshott type XIIa are recognized by being wide at the base and tapering to a well defined point.

Our Baron Type XIIa has a blade shaped to allow certain stiffness for the thrust while being primarily dedicated to slashing and cleaving. The powerful mass of this sword is well managed by a careful distribution of mass together with a long grip and results in very good handling characteristics.

This is a sword for the battlefield but can be used in the fencing techniques of Liechtenauer, although the wide and acutely sharp blade does not lend itself too well for half-swording.

With these swords we wanted to make available classic examples of knightly battlefield weapons of the late 13th and early 14th centuries. As on all swords in this line they are based on documentation of and impressions from several original swords. Special care has been taken so that their blades have the same careful distribution of weight and crisp definition as can be observed in the most well preserved originals.
