Hard-to-find Museum Replicas Wakefield Sword


Click image for larger photo

This is a long-discontinued sword from Museum Replicas Limited. Many people have asked about this piece and has been in quite the demand since MRL discontinued it. I'd like to keep this piece, as the style of weapon has always been extremely interesting to me. But life has brought things to require me to drastically cut back on my collecting hobby and this is one piece that has to go.

English Circa 1460

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.

Notice the "reverse curve" of the blade profile: the sharpened edge is the straighter edge.. very cool.

Overall length: 33.5"
Weight: 2.9 pounds
Width of guard: 6"
Blade: 27.5" long; 1.75" tapering to .75"
Fullers: 24.5" and 26" long
Grip and pommel: 5.125"
Point of Balance (PoB): 5.25" from guard

Has a black leather scabbard with steel fittings.

Very good condition. Includes scabbard with metal mounts.

A note about pricing: my asking price is higher than MRL's original price. This piece has long been discontinued and so this is what it's worth for me to get it out of my hands. Were one to commission such a piece from a custom-maker, the price would be significantly higher.

ASKING PRICE: $400 + Shipping

I prefer PayPal. Add 3% mark-up to offset PayPal fee.
