Beautifully balanced, this is the type of weapon that the tough, hard bitten professional fighting man of his day would have chosen. It is simply a no-nonsense sword that can perfectly perform its one purpose. The somewhat small radius of the wheel pommel makes up its weight by being fully 1-1/4″ thick. The stout crossguard is not overly long and is curved to protect the hand from an opponent’s sliding blade or shield. The grip is wood covered in cord and leather for good solid contact. The high carbon blade tapers to a good firm stabbing point while retaining enough width for a sheating cut along its full length and is tempered to a very tough spring. Includes leather scabbard, made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Can be sharpened for an additional fee.
