I've personally dreamed of a Celtic Anthropomorphic Sword that looked like the real thing for years, and finally Darksword stepped up to the plate and delivered..
This is easily the most authentic replica of a sword of this type, with a stout and extremely strong blade designed for cutting and thrusting in the wild Celtic style.
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 guard and pommel are made of solid cast brass and form the shape of a man, hence the name “Anthropomorphic.” The Pommel is the head and arms, while the guard is the legs, and the blade… well, what the blade represents should be more than obvious..
Weighing around 2lbs 1 oz with a point of balance right at the guard, this shortsword is a fast and powerful and would be the pride and joy of any Celtic Chieftan.
How to Use
Designed for heavy steel on steel contact, Renaissance fairs, theatrical use and (careful) sparring. Tips are sharp but blade itself is unsharpened by default.
