Excalibur Sword"- The legendary sword of King Arthur son of Uther and Igrain. The Legend has it that it was magically embedded in a stone and only the truest of knights could remove it and so be king. Excalibur served Arthur well until his great battle with his arch enemy Modrid (who just happens to have also been his son), the culmination of which saw the great sword returned to the Lady of the Lake. Could you be the next Arthur? Now we're not saying that we were able to make a deal with the Lady of the Lake, but if your wife or girlfriend is named Guinevere, just imagine the possibilities.
These Generation 2/Legacy Arms blades are made of strong high carbon steel with a full tang. The handle is wooden with a stainless steel twisted wire wrapping. The cross guard and pommel are made of solid brass, then highly polished.
A hardwood scabbard wrapped in leather with brass accents is included.
This is the exact same sword that captured everyone's imagination back in 2005 and was one of the first REAL swords in Paul Southrens' personal collection that inspired him to start Sword Buyers Guide in the first place!

ABOUT LEGACY ARMS
Legacy Arms, formerly known as Generation 2, still leads the way in the affordable sword market creating tough, well made items for the Medieval Sword enthusiast. All blades are selectively tempered 5160 steel with a robust apple-seed edge. The tempering is designed to provide a harder edge and softer, shock resistant core so that the sword will bend or deform rather than break in the heat of combat and is faithful to many historical examples.
The hilt construction is typically in steel (passing the magnet test) unless otherwise noted and the grips are leather over wood. The tangs are peened over the pommel the traditional way for maximum overall strength. The fit and finish of these swords from Legacy Arms is quite impressive, and would be at twice the price! Made with pride in the Philippines using anvil, fire and good old muscle power.
How to Use
Suitable for backyard cutting (heavy targets only) and/or as a display piece. As the blades are selectively tempered they are not designed to be flex tested (actually no sword should really be flex tested, it damages and might actually break a blade - historically swords were tested by pressing them against a solid surface to check its resilience. But NOT its flexibility. Historical Swords were NOT the same as modern sport fencing foils!)
