The Gothic art of the mid-12th century affected not only architecture, painting, and sculpture, but various other facets of life, too. It even influenced weapons, as this Two Handed Gothic Sword with Scabbard echoes a touch of gothic style. The artistic influence falls onto the sword's hilt, which features a subtle S-shaped curve in the mild steel guard that enhances the appeal of this weapon all the more. The sword's blade, though, is designed for an artist of steel and skill, being forged entirely from 1060 high carbon steel that is oil hardened and tempered to a hardness of 53 Rockwells. It's bold and strong shape offers immense cutting power and impact, as well as a fine thrusting point, too. The sword's full length tang is encased in wood and wrapped in black leather to create a comfortable grip, while the tip of the tang is peened to a large 'scent stopper' pommel to provide strength and a great counterbalance of weight. Included with the sword is a matched wooden scabbard, wrapped in black leather, which is ideal for storing the sword safely and securely when it is not in use. Wrap two hands around this Two Handed Gothic Sword with Scabbard and you'll find not only an appreciation for gothic art, but also a love for this fine blade, whose balance and hardiness make it a fine weapon for any warrior to wield, in practice or in battle.
