The Hastings Sword with Scabbard and Belt is a battle ready weapon that suits medieval soldiers as well as war-forged kings. Inspired by historical swords of the Middle Ages, this hand-and-a-half sword is ready for your next medieval reenactment. From knights to nobility, this hand forged sword suits all kinds of warriors.
Named for the famous Battle of Hastings of 1066, swords used by the combatants of that battle directly inspired this medieval reenactment sword. This includes both blade shape and hilt design. It also draws its design from Oakeshott Sub-Type XIIIA swords.
Firstly, the blade of this hand forged knight sword is made of 5160 high carbon steel. A full tang, battle ready weapon, this sword is functional for reenactment battles. Choose between sharpened and unsharpened blade options.
Long, broad, and double-edged, the Hastings Sword blade is a substantial weapon. It tapers gradually along the length. This lines up with cut-and-thrust fighting styles of the 13th and 14th centuries, resembling a soldiers arming sword.
Then, a double fuller adds detail and reduces weight along three-fourths of the blade. Differential hardening also makes the blade edge sturdy and able to hold an edge without making the sword brittle. This results in edges at Rockwell 60 and a core at Rockwell 48-50.
Next, the hilt draws from bastard sword styles that persisted for several centuries of the Middle Ages. Made of mild steel, its fittings are in line with iconic knight sword style. The straight cruciform guard features a slight central ridge.
Then, black leather wraps around the oak wood handle. Textured lines lend extra strength to the grip. The hand-and-a-half length makes it a versatile weapon. Finally, the wheel-shaped pommel counterbalances the blade, thus making it easier to wield.
This hand-and-a-half sword is paired with a matching scabbard made of the same black leather. Polished steel fittings add a sense of finery to this sword that suits everyone from cavalry knights and Crusaders to soldiers and even kings. The throat comes to a point, protecting the center of the guard when the sword is sheathed. Finally, an integrated leather sword belt makes it easy to carry this blade into battle or on your next medieval adventure. Set it on one of our sword display stands when not in use.
Named for the Battle of Hastings, this Norman knight sword clearly draws inspiration from swords wielded in that battle. Fought between William the Conqueror and the much contested King Harold Godwinson, the battle determined who would become King of England. William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy, rode in with his soldiers and emerged victorious due to the death of King Harold, ending Anglo-Saxon rule in Britain.
Inspired by history and battle, this medieval bastard sword will suit characters and settings throughout the Middle Ages. If you are looking for a versatile weapon to bring to all kinds of historical reenactments, choose this medieval knight sword. It is an essential addition to any discerning weapons collection.
