The Knight Riding sword features a fuller running two-thirds the length of the blade. The cross guard and pommel are solid steel, polished and fitted onto a full tang that is peened at top of the pommel for strength and durability. This is how many of the originals were fitted. The scabbard is made from wood then wrapped in leather with a solid steel end cap.
According to Ewart Oakeshott in Records of the Medieval Sword, page 151, an identical sword is shown on two early 14th century effigies in Germany. The first is of Arnold I Langraph of Cleve, and the second is of one of the hero-figures, c. 1308, in the Rathaus at Cologne. Not only are hilts of the swords on these figures exactly the same as this sword, but the size is more proof that these short swords were not made for boys, or archers, but for knights and great nobles.

this is a good, historically accurate reproduction of one of Oakeshot's favorite swords.
This is an inch for inch, ounce for ounce, excellent reproduction of a truly noble, knightly sword. Most of us can only imagine what a knightly sword of the high middle ages felt like in the hand of a nobleman or true knight, but this sword allows one to feel what a true knight heldin his hand centuries ago!
I LOVE this little sword!
