The second in a series of performance oriented swords designed by Gus Trim and produced by Kingston Arms, this 13th Century Arming Sword has a very slight forward balance, making it quick in the hand and devastating in the cut. Based on Oakeshott Type XIV specification, these swords were used in the 13th to early 14th century during the transitional period from mail armour to full plate worn in the 15th century. This medieval sword is therefore more cut oriented than later period swords, with a more acute point than earlier examples. This melding of cut and thrust ability coincides perfectly with sword and shield or sword and buckler techniques. The blade is hand forged 9260 spring steel, flat ground with a handsome satin finish. Also, the blade has a sharpened edge. The fittings are high quality stainless steel exactly matching Gus Trims design. The grip is a solid wood core, cord wrapped for strength with a textured leather over wrap. The scabbard is a solid wood core, with a stainless steel chape and stitched leather wrap. This 13th Century Arming Sword makes a fantastic addition to any sword collection.
