A great example of re-enactment weaponry, the Tourney Arming Sword comes in a blunt design that is perfect for training and stage combat. The functional sword is forged from 9260 high carbon spring steel tempered to about 50 Hrc. The guard of the medieval sword is constructed with a steel tab under the grip, which is peened through the tang of the sword to prevent the guard from going loose, all without compromising the strength of the hilt. The round, stainless steel pommel is pressed into place and hot peened, as well.
The leather-wrapped grip feels excellent in the hand. Texturing creates a cord-wrapped look and feel on the single section of leather. Also, the grip has an oval cross-section and slight barrel shape, and the design is large enough to accommodate armored hands. A fuller runs the length of the blade to lighten and counterbalance the re-enactment sword. A wooden core, leather-wrapped scabbard tipped with a stainless steel chape completes the piece.
