Legacy Arms Knight's Riding Sword
New, clean lines and lighter, better balanced version of the Legacy Arms Classic medieval sidearm. Believed to have been one of the most common types of medieval swords, though few surviving examples exist.
According to Ewart Oakeshott. "Records of the Medieval Sword", page 151;
An identical one is shown on two early 14th century effigies in Germany. (i), of Arnold I Langraph of Cleve, + 1320 in Stiftskirche at Cleve, and (ii), of one of the hero-figures, c. 1308, in the Rathaus at Cologne. Not only are hilts of the swords on these figures exactly the same as this sword, but the size is too,, more proof (if any more is needed, which it shouldn't be) that these short swords were not made for boys, or archers etc., but for knights and in this case, great nobles.
The blade of this sword is hand forged from 5160 carbon steel and hand tempered. The blade is then securely peened at pommel. The handle is wood wrapped in black leather. Sword also includes a wood scabbard wrapped in black leather with steel accents at throat and tip.

Although the description states this was originally made for knight's and noble warriors. This is the first of manu swords u recently purchased. With all the trouble in the world these days mu greates fear is WW3 starting. As crazy as it sounds that has motivated me to start sword training. This sword is perfect for that. At least is was for me. Its evenly balanced and easy to move as needed. We live un the area of guns however I will be prepared for close combat if it comes to that and this sword will be my weapon of choice. It is also good to scare away the crack heads invading Salinas Ca. Wheb they try and set up canp near my home a simome wakk out side with this attaches to my hip they turn and leave quickly hahahaha all jokes aside this is a great weapon and great for training and home use.
