Our Most Popular Longsword
Taking a decades worth of experience with the best sword forges in Longquan (whose own sword making history dates back THOUSANDS of years) and combining it with the best practices of modern, fully functional European sword replicas - the end result is Ronin Katana's line of high quality, hand forged battle ready medieval swords - now available for immediate shipping at a price that practically any enthusiast can afford.
Each sword in this range is hand forged from top quality 1075 carbon steel, properly heat treated for strength and flexibility and sharpened so you can use them for cutting straight out of the box (or if you prefer, used to cut up the box, though be sure to take out the form fitting Styrofoam, added to protect against damage in transit). But no reason to stop there, these swords can easily cut water filled bottles of all shaped and sizes, super thick bamboo, tatami mats, you name it - they can handle it!
The swords vary in design and while not based on any particular medieval sword are historically plausible and designed to exhibit great handling and cutting dynamics rarely found at this price point.
The Type XVIIb Longsword comes with a genuine black leather wrapped wooden core handle, all steel fittings and PEENED pommel for extra durability with the end result being one of the most solidly made entry level Longswords ever made. Every sword also comes with a FREE BONUS wooden core faux leather wooden core wrapped scabbard and integrated suspension system for either display or wearing (one size belt can be adjusted to suit your waist as necessary)
Simply amazing value for money and a return to affordable medieval swords where every other maker has doubled or tripled their prices means that they will sell out fast, so grab one while you can!
This particular model is a two handed medieval sword based on an Oakeshott Type XVIIIb sword (cut and thrust style Longsword, popular in Germany during the 15th and 16th centuries), with solid bodied blade with low ground diamond cross section for maximum durability, cusped style guard hilt and scent stopper pommel. Ready to cut straight out of the box.

This is my first sword and I admit I was a bit nervous when I first saw that the scabbard was bowed. Then I was nervous that I couldn't get the sword out of the scabbard. It turns out that its just a really snug fit. The sword blade itself is perfectly straight and almost perfectly ground. This is the real deal! The fit and finish of this sword is nearly perfect. From the peened pommel to the leather wrapped grip and the guard all are executed very well. Very happy with the quality of this weapon. And the swish sound it makes while swinging, priceless! Its a bit on the hefty side but its rather long so understandable. Not razor sharp, but definitely sharp enough to cut no problem. The blade is polished rather well, but I plan to polish it even farther to get a mirror finish out of it.
Very well constructed
Fit and finish are excellent.
Scabbard seems a bit cheaply made.
Belt system is really low quality, but in this price range the fact it comes with a scabbard is really nice. Scabbard looks okay but would be nicer with a higher quality leather belt and strap.
Overall very excited about this purchase and can't wait to try cutting stuff with it! Wife isn't as excited but its always been my childhood dream to have a real sword so she understood.
