The Medieval swords of the 14th. century typically follows this pattern. The smooth quillions and blade reflect both design and taste of the late medieval period, eventually giving way to the gothic era. The detailed handle and curved guard indicates the early artistic influences, eventually explored during the gothic period.
The 14th century original can be found in the Musé des invalides, Paris, France. This one handed modern reproduction is DSA standard with 5160 spring steel, dual hardened to Rockwell 60 at the edge and a core of HRC 50 for flexibility and strength, and looks especially great when ordered with the optional scabbard upgrade.
While the edge comes with a narrow 1.4mm edge so you can actually use it in blade on blade contact (CAREFULLY and RESPONSIBLY of course – please see our section on sword training and fighting on the main site for info) – the blade is more than strong enough that you can sharpen it up yourself if you want to use them for test cutting practice.
The hilt itself is extremely attractive and authentic, with a mild steel crossguard and genuine leather wrap handle.
The grip features four risers for added grip, and the sword has an attractive wheel pommel and curved cross guard.
The Knight’s sword is a “classic” medieval sword and versions of it have been reproduced all over. This is the sword that was featured in my test to destruction review and is one of my favourite Darksword blades. This newer version now comes with a peened pommel for additional durability.
