THIS is the sword that immediately drew my eye upon my visit to the Forge in Pangasinan, the Philippines. While it is a contemporary interpretation of an ancient Celtic Leaf Blade Sword design, personally I saw it as an extremely well done, fully functional fantasy blade - and it was this blade that inspired me to work with BCI to create a line of fully Functional Fantasy Swords.

This sword is based on a historical La Tene design from around the 5th Century BC. These swords were made of iron instead of bronze, and is essentially the ancestor of ALL medieval European Swords. Leaf blade swords like this one have the greatest amount of mass right at widest point of the flared blade, giving it maximum impact when cutting, but also quite capable of a deeply penetrating thrust.

The BCI recreation is completely hand forged from start to finish with countless hours of work going into each and every sword. The blade itself is forged from monotempered 5160 Spring Steel, an extremely tough and hard wearing modern steel that would have cut the iron originals asunder and is many times more durable than the actual swords used in battle 2,500 years ago. As such, it makes a great backyard cutter and piece of functional sword art.

As BCI is a traditional sword forge, they do not mass produce their blades - so the time between restock can be many months. As these swords are in very limited supply and priced well below usual industry markups, it is highly recommended that if you want to secure one and they are in stock, you order as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
