In 1403, Henry VI defeated the rebel forces of Henry Percy two miles outside of a Welsh border city. Being named after that battle, this Shrewsbury Sword is patterned after the same swords that would have been used during that medieval conflict. Being patterned after a traditional 15th century sword, this weapon features a diamond shaped blade that gradually tapers from waist to stabbing point, creating a sword that is long and strong yet light and quick. The blade is crafted from quality steel, and it has been left unsharpened. The classic design makes it a great weapon for warriors of all sorts to carry. The sword features a pierced steel guard that features cross cut-outs along the edges, while also possessing a leather-wrapped grip. The scent-stopper pommel is smaller sized, yet it serves to counter the weight of the blade quite effectively. Included with the sword is a wood scabbard wrapped in leather and fitted with still furnishings on the chape and throat. The swords overall length is approximately 46 inches. It does not matter what role you fill when you are in medieval costume, as soldiers, civilians, kings, knights, and warlords of all sorts can benefit from having this Shrewsbury Sword at their side, and when it is not at your side, you show it off as a great medieval display in the comforts of your own castle (otherwise known as your home).
This sword comes in two types. The regular version is tempered and hardened and features traditional shaping, making it a great choice for display or carrying to complete your look. The Light Combat version is tempered and hardened with thick edges and a rounded tip, making it suitable for light use in sparring and reenactment.
