Hanwei Cromwell Mortuary SwordHanwei Cromwell Mortuary Sword1
English Mortuary style sword. MSRP $510
Oliver Cromwell (1599 – 1658) was a powerful figure in English history during and after the English Civil War, when he rose from the rank of Captain of Horse to Lord Protector of England.
His sword, said to have been carried at the battle of Drogheda in 1649, has been remarkably well preserved and is displayed in the permanent collection of the Royal Armouries in Leeds, England. The Paul Chen Cromwell Sword is an accurate replica of the original “mortuary” hilt style and features a blackened guard decorated in a gold foliage pattern with a wire-wound sharkskin grip. As the original sword now lacks a scabbard , we have provided a design typical of the period. This piece of English history is a must for the ECW collector and re-enactor..

I like this sword. Handles very well and is well built. Some people may not like the antiqued blade but it is fine for me. For the price, there are some small shortcuts with the the hilt but very well done in my opinion. My sword came without a sharpened edge but was fixed with just a smooth file and five minutes of time invested. This sword is unique and not many are are made of this type. I am quite happy with the quality for the price paid. I gave it a 4-star just because it came unsharpened.
