The Tewkesbury Sword is a classic example of a medieval long sword, featuring a gently tapered sword-blade that looks like it would excel at both cutting and thrusting. That makes it the ideal weapon to find in the hand of any medieval warrior. To begin with, the sword takes its name from a famous medieval battle that occurred near its namesake, in England.
The tempered sword comes in two blade options, regular and light-combat. The light-combat version works for stage combat and has a rounded tip. Meanwhile, the regular one has a pointed tip and is battle ready. Both options feature an unsharpened EN45 high-carbon steel blade that is rather long in length. Its tapered design helps to cut down on the weight as does its half-length fuller. Together, they ensure that while long and powerful, this sword is also quite quick and nimble.
Then, the swords traditional cross-guard is mild steel. It features decorative cross engravings at the ends of the guard. Black leather wraps around the wooden grip. The scent-stopper pommel helps to counter the weapons weight, while featuring matching cross engravings on its surface. Furthermore, there is a nut on the end of the pommel.
Included with the sword is a wooden scabbard that is wrapped in black leather. Blued steel furnishings decorate its chape and throat. This Tewkesbury Sword would make a great long sword to keep at your side at a reenactment or battle.
